THE GLORIES OF BACH

OCT 7 + 9

Overview

Our season opener captures the sizzle that listeners first experienced in Leipzig’s famous Zimmermann’s Coffee House, where Bach himself led these marvelous suites, which H+H will perform on the period instruments Bach wrote for. No. 3 includes the sublime Air on the G String, and both suites feature dances that are, by turn, ebullient, elegant, and festive. The celebration also includes one of Bach’s most jubilant motets and radiant masses.
