Bach at One

May 8, 2017

After performing the entire sacred vocal works output of Johann Sebastian Bach, Trinity's Bach at One series returns to put these masterworks in the context of Bach’s musical world.  We begin a complete survey of Bach’s organ works with the miniature jewels from the Clavierübung III.  Taking the theme from each part of the Lutheran liturgy, these organ works will be paired with favorite Bach cantatas and works of Bach's contemporaries Buxtehude, Krieger, Heinichen, and Telemann. The series, held on Wednesday in the fall, moves to Mondays at 1pm and features musicians from the period-instrument ensemble New York Baroque Incorporated and soloists from The Choir of Trinity Wall Street.
