Our series of hour-long Bach+ Organ Vespers is designed to show off the organ works of J.S. Bach through the inimitable voice of St. Anne’s newly-refurbished Freiburger organ. Through this series, you will understand why Bach was regarded as the “prince of all clavier players” (as a colleague once called him).
The series continues on January 21st at 4 pm with the fourth program, featuring the monumental Prelude and Fugue in E minor, BWV 548. The “Wedge” fugue, as it has come to be known (because of its ever-widening main theme), is one of the major works for organ written by Bach during his Leipzig years. Other works on this month’s Organ Vespers include chorales from the “Leipzig” collection and selections from the trio sonatas written for Bach’s son Wilhelm Friedemann.
Bach+ Organ Vespers programs are held at 4 pm (unless otherwise noted) on the following dates:
