Close Encounters - ACRONYM

THE BACH FAMILY tree boasts an illustrious cluster of great musicians who act as a bridge into the Classical style. Presented with reverence are the works of Johann Sebastian, the Oboe Concerto by Carl Philippe Emanuel, and the Cello Concerto by Johann Christian. Presented with mischievous irreverence is his “illegitimate” son, P.D.Q. Bach (a.k.a. Peter Schickele) in a concerto for “Four Handed Viola” that combines musicological scholarship, the conventions of Baroque, and slapstick comedy. The program concludes with the timeless Brandenburg Concerto No. 3.

Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center, Great Barrington, MA
