Program Overview
The profound and continued influence of Johann Sebastian Bach is most artfully presented with performances of music by the composers on which he had so great an effect. This program frames music of devotees Mendelssohn, Villa-Lobos, and Hindemith with seminal works of the master himself: Prelude and Fugue No.12 in F Minor with its old Italian opera lamento, and the Italian Concerto, BWV 971.
