Orchestra Concert I

Prussian Blue

with Jacques Ogg, harpsichord

Johann Sebastian Bach, ever the proud father, once proclaimed the music of his son Carl Philipp Emmanuel would fade quickly, like the color “Prussian Blue.” Luckily for us, it didn’t! This concert features music for orchestra by C.P.E. Bach, Fasch, Schaffrath, and Müthel.

Chamber Concert II

Bach and Couperin

Two of the Baroque’s most influential musicians, J.S. Bach and François Couperin, never met in person, although they knew of each other. This concert brings together some of the most beautiful chamber works by these two giants.
