Part of Chicago area’s 50th annual Bach Week Festival will present five distinctly different Baroque concert programs in Chicago and Evanston, Illinois, April 28 to May 14, 2023.
Music of Bach and other Baroque masters, on period instruments
The sounds of “Bach’s Musical World” will reverberate throughout a free chamber music concert on period instruments at 3 p.m. Sunday, April 30, at All Saints’ Episcopal Church, 4550 N. Hermitage Avenue, in Chicago’s Ravenswood neighborhood.
Curated by early music specialist Jason J. Moy, Bach Week’s principal organist and harpsichordist, the hourlong program “features works by some of Bach’s most influential forebears as well as some of his direct contemporaries and other composers whose works he knew and deeply admired,” Moy says.
The program opens with a nod to Bach Week’s golden 50th season: the first movement of Bach’s “Goldberg Variations,” BWV 988, performed on the rarely heard archlute.
