On May 7, 1747, in a meeting with Frederick the Great, the king, who was an accomplished flute player, handed Bach a complex theme on which to demonstrate his improvisation skills. Bach took the theme home with him and composed an elaborate set of pieces based on the ‘Royal’ theme.
Pacific Baroque Festival 2014 - Bach’s Instrument. Join us as we celebrate the greatest composer of baroque music and 1 of the great composers of all time.
Bach composed some of the most profound vocal music of all time, including some 300 sacred cantatas. But he also enjoyed writing humorous music such as the two popular cantatas on this program, as well as engaging in complex mathematical play with musical forms such as in the 6-part ricercar from ‘The Musical Offering’.
It is not surprising, given the immense quantity of music that Bach produced, that he re-purposed music, both his own and that of others. For his four ‘Lutheran’ Masses, Bach borrowed heavily from earlier cantatas, adapting the music to a new Latin text. He also often adapted instrumental music to new circumstances or instruments.
Appropriate music for the Lenten season composed by Bach and other great Leipzig composers, including Telemann and Buxtehude. Free admission; voluntary offerings accepted
