Santa Cruz Baroque Festival [Canceled] J.S. Bach Celebration ~ by Candlelight

Edwin Huizinga & Grijda Spiri, Baroque Violins
Vlada Moran, Pipe Organ
Linda Burman-Hall, Harpsichord & Artistic Director

Eventually, all sound-streams lead to Bach, whose name in German literally does mean ‘stream’, the joining of cooperating currents flowing confidently and with force. Our concert takes place in traditional Baroque candlelight, while the metaphorical light we shine on familiar works is quite new. A Bach organ trio will be played not on the organ but by two violins, harpsichord and cello, and one organ work of J. S. Bach turns out to have been transcribed from an Italian master he much admired. Most shocking perhaps, Bach’s D Minor Toccata and Fugue, accepted for more than 250 years as an iconic organ work, will be played on the violin, which may have been the composer’s original intention.

A Meet-the-Artist reception following this event welcomes donors, season ticket and flex-pass holders.

Pre-concert talks begin 45 minutes before Concerts I-V and are free with concert admission.
