Vaughan + Nicolson: JS Bach
21 June @ 18:00 - 19:00$30 – $37
Bach’s three sonatas for viola da gamba and obbligato harpsichord are fascinating works that represent one of the composer’s chief contributions to the modern idea of chamber music. Composed as trio sonatas in three parts, the harpsichord and viola da gamba are given equal importance with moments ranging from brilliant Italianate passagework and concerto-like grandeur to profoundly beautiful slow melodies.
Through the delicate tonal capacities of the viola da gamba and harpsichord, Laura Vaughan and Donald Nicolson give these chamber music masterpieces by one of the world’s greatest composers a perfect voice. An unmatched union of vitality and refinement.
