90th Annual Bach Festival: What Bach Heard ($)

Date: 04/08/2022
Time: 4:00 PM

Gamble Auditorium, Kulas Musical Arts Building
96 Front St


Presented by the Kulas Foundation.

Baroque band ACRONYM — an “outstanding young early-music string ensemble” (The New Yorker) — is dedicated to giving modern premieres of the wild instrumental music of the 17th century. What Bach Heard features instrumental music from Eisenach, Arnstadt, Weimar, Köthen and Leipzig.

The concert will explore that, as a child and young composer from a musical family, J. S. Bach was raised hearing music composed both locally and from faraway parts of the fragmented German lands. ACRONYM presents a selection of this distinct and beautiful repertory, including sonatas and dances by composers Dietrich Buxtehude, Adam Drese, Heinrich Bach (Johann’s uncle), Johann Rosenmüller, Johann Pezel and others. This rarely heard music captures some of the diverse sounds of the 17th-century German lands
