J.S. Bach and Inter-Instrumentality
July 12, 2015 @ 6:30 pm
Lecture-concert on how J.S. Bach employed the practice of inter-instrumental arranging and the cross-fertilization of instrumental idioms. The talk will touch upon musicological issues that have resulted from a culture of rich exchange among vocal, keyboard, plucked and bowed string, and wind styles. Please join Lars Rosager, and partake in a lecture on, as well as discussion and performance of, Bach’s timeless music. Aspects of theory and composition from the high baroque, as well as cultural implications of various instrument families, endure today in a musical climate that includes much inter-instrumental sharing.
Pieces to be performed:
Prelude No. 9 in E Major from Book I of the Well-Tempered Clavier
Allemande and Courante from the Suite BWV 995
Passion Chorale “Wenn ich einmal soll scheiden (Be Near Me, Lord, When Dying),” from the
St. Matthew Passion
Other musical demonstrations according to lecture topics.
