Concert violinist and Juilliard415 faculty, Elizabeth Blumenstock is joined by renowned Dutch soprano Josefien Stoppelenburg, Händel-Haydn Society cellist Guy Fishman, Bach Society Houston harpsichordist Christopher Holman, and BBF’s director, violinist Zachary Carrettin. 

 

Intimate chamber music of J.S. Bach, Händel, and Telemann will be performed exquisitely on historical instruments. Repertoire includes selections from Händel’s Gloria, a virtuosic piece for soprano, strings, and basso continuo, a gorgeous rendition of Händel’s passionate and lyrical Trio Sonata in B Minor, HWV 386b, and strikingly profound chamber music by J.S. Bach. Bach’s famous contemporary Telemann will be represented in an unaccompanied violin fantasia. In a special rendition of Mozart's keyboard Concerto 2 in G Major after Johann Christian Bach, KV 107, Holman will perform on chamber organ accompanied by two violins and cello. 

 

Some of our nation’s finest and most expressive interpreters of baroque music join together for this memorable opening to BBF’s 37th season!

 

Pre-concert lecture begins at 6:30pm, presented by Christopher Holman.
