Performances of vocal and instrumental works including a spectacular sonata by Johann Sebastian Bach featuring Mina Gajić performing on the BBF’s new double manual Flemish harpsichord. You’ll also experience a Johann Christoph Bach motet that is mindbogglingly beautiful—with voices and instruments including viola da gamba. Next you’ll hear a chorale with a fascinating history dating to 1599, originally composed as a love song during a plague in a turbulent time of epidemics in Europe. BBF artists perform this outdoors at historic Ryssby Church, (built in 1882, Longmont, Colorado).
From ancient bows caressing the strings in the languid sonorities of a Bach chorale prelude, to fiery and richly contrapuntal harpsichord—and from the embracing timbres of the human voice to natural scenes in our beloved Colorado, our 40th season melts the screen away, connecting you to a place and a time through the artistry of the BBF musicians and the composers whose works are featured.
This dynamically joyful program will lift your spirits, and includes 17th and 18th century chamber music in a variety of genres. Locations include Camp St. Malo Chapel on the Rock, Broomfield Auditorium, and Boulder's beautiful outdoors–in the snow!
This program features works by J.S. Bach, Marini, Uccellini, Corelli, François Couperin, and Arthur Gottschalk.
