Bach's Library

Peek into the library of J.S. Bach, featuring an elegant suite, virtuoso harpsichord concerto, and music by those who inspired him.

Making his Tafelmusik debut this season is harpsichord soloist and director Francesco Corti,

“a powerhouse of unbridled vivacity, exciting and excitable in equal measure” (BBC Music Magazine). Corti leads the orchestra in a fascinating program of music by J. S. Bach and those who inspired him, including Telemann and Zelenka—composers whose manuscripts were found to be part of his personal library.

At the heart of this concert are two works by Bach himself: the elegant Orchestral Suite no 1 in C Major, featuring Tafelmusik’s superb wind players, and the Harpsichord Concerto in D minor, an imposing, exhilarating masterpiece that demands stamina and virtuosity from the soloist.
