Hartford - Bach & Beyond
Posted on: 2019-01-02
What: Bach & Beyond
Where: The Bushnell Center for the Performing Arts, 166 Capitol Ave., Hartford, CT 06106
When: 1/18/2019 - 1/20/2019, Friday & Saturday: 8:00pm, Sunday: 3:00pm
The HSO is thrilled to present Bach & Beyond, led by HSO associate concertmaster, and Baroque specialist, Lisa Rautenberg! "Air on the G String," the second movement in Bach's Suite No. 3 in D Major, is unquestionably one of the most famous melodies in the Baroque era. Lully was the master of the lyric tragedy, and his Phaeton is a warning against excessive pride. This intricate tale, nicknamed "the peopleís opera" in 1683, focuses on Phaeton, the son of Apollo, who drives his chariot too close to the sun. Plus, Baroque dancers take the stage for Vivaldi's La Follia. The second half of this performance presents Baroque music interpreted through a modern lens; Villa-Lobos' Bachianas Brasileiras No. 9 was inspired by Bach's compositional style, while Ibert's Divertissement reimagines the Baroque ballet suite genre.
