Gloucester Meetinghouse Foundation: Bach and Beyond
March 16, 2019 @ 7:30 pm
Bach and Beyond will take you on a musical journey around and through the genius of Johann Sebastian Bach. First, soak in the serene exultation of Trumpet Concerto No. 2 by Tomaso Albinoni and gain an understanding of why this popular composer was so intriguing to Bach. Next, venture onward to Bach’s vibrantly fast-paced Orchestral Suite No. 2, followed by his succinct and intense Prelude and Fugue in E minor for organ soloist. You will then meander forward in time to Mozart’s exquisite Clarinet and String Quintet, in which Bach’s influence runs through like a golden thread. Complete the journey by returning to Bach and his gloriously virtuostic and brilliant Brandenburg Concerto No. 2.
