Santa Cruz Baroque Festival 4/25 – cancelled
April 25, 2020 @ 7:30 pm
Santa Cruz Baroque Festival presents “J.S. Bach Celebration – by Candlelight” at Peace United Church.
Edwin Huizinga & Grijda Spiri, Baroque Violins; Vlada Moran, Pipe Organ
Linda Burman-Hall, Harpsichord & Artistic Director
Eventually, all sound-streams lead to Bach, whose name in German literally does mean ‘stream’, the joining of cooperating currents owing confidently and with force. Our concert takes place in traditional Baroque candlelight, while the metaphorical light we shine on familiar works is quite new. A Bach organ trio will be played not on the organ but by two violins, harpsichord and cello, and one organ work of J. S. Bach turns out to have been transcribed from an Italian master he much admired. Most shocking perhaps, Bach’s D Minor Toccata and Fugue, accepted for more than 250 years as an iconic organ work, will be played on the violin, which may have been the composer’s original intention.
A Meet-the-Artist reception following this event welcomes donors, season ticket and flex-pass holders.
