Bach & Tunes -Multiple Voices for One
August 4 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm PDT$15 – $30
2022 Vancouver Bach Festival – David Greenberg takes us on a musical journey that meanders between Baroque solo violin repertoire and traditional folk-style tunes. David’s rare fluency in both Baroque and Cape Breton playing styles allows him to approach each moment of music in an imaginative and deeply personal way.
The end of the Baroque era coincided with the Golden Age of Scottish fiddling, a time when rural fiddler and trained concert musician alike participated in the bloom of a national music. Soon afterwards, thousands of Scots displaced by the Highland Clearances settled on Cape Breton Island, the northeast portion of Nova Scotia, where the fiddle tradition continues to flourish.
“What I especially love about these pairings of Bach and folk tunes are the surprising things that one genre learns from the other. Unconventional musical techniques and expressive vocabulary become newly available as one world meets another. The joyful and elemental rhythmic drive of Cape Breton music meets the wondrous fantasy of Bach’s musical tapestry, creating an unfolding story that is rich and waiting to be told.”
