BACH DOUBLE HARPSICHORD CONCERTOS

Bach Double Harpsichord Concertos

Past Performance

A CO-PRODUCTION OF PBO AND BYRON SCHENKMAN & FRIENDS

“A superb harpsichordist…Schenkman is a master.” – Seattle Times

The keyboard was Bach’s wheelhouse. His brilliant and rarely-performed double concertos will feature harpsichordists Ignacio Prego and Byron Schenkman. Because music was not created in a vacuum, our program explores influences on Bach’s music, including a string concerto by Bach’s friend, Telemann: by far the more famous composer in their day.

  • Johann Sebastian Bach: Two Concerti in C Minor for two harpsichords and strings
  • Girolamo Frescobaldi: Canzon VI à 4 and Canzon II à 4 sopra Romanesca
  • Claudia Francesca Rusca: Canzon I à 4 La Borromea
  • Georg Philipp Telemann: Sonata à 4 in F Major for strings and continuo
