Harpsichord works from youth to maturity

Friday, November 18, 2022 – 7:30 pm

Like the organ, the harpsichord captivated Bach, and his virtuosic fingertips plied keyboards wherever his career took him. To better understand the variety and evolution of Bach’s harpsichord works—from the disjointed toccatas of his youth to the rigorous contrapuntal constructions of his mature years, not to mention the Italian Concerto and the Chromatic Fantasia and Fugue—Luc Beauséjour takes a journey through the various styles that marked Bach’s music throughout his life.
