Biweekly Bach

August 30 @ 9:00 am - 9:30 am CDT

Biweekly Bach is Ars Lyrica Houston’s newest virtual series, traversing the 24 preludes and fugues of Johann Sebastian Bach’s The Well-Tempered Clavier, Book 1 with inspired playing and enlightening commentary by Matthew Dirst.

Every other week, a new episode of Biweekly Bach features two prelude and fugue pairs, recorded in the beautiful surroundings of Rienzi, the house museum for European decorative arts of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.

This is the first video recording of the entire volume to feature a single performer on an instrument inspired by those from Bach’s own environment, with commentary from the performer, who is also a leading scholar of this music. The harpsichord, with its elaborate marquetry and decoration in the style of Baroque Dresden, is an ideal match for the sumptuous interiors of Rienzi. Each recording session features different parts of the museum, giving visual variety to the entire project.

Schedule:

August 30 at 9 am | Episode 5: C-Sharp Major and C-Sharp Minor
September 13 at 9 am | Episode 6: E Minor and A Major
September 27 at 9 am | Episode 7: F-Sharp Major and F-Sharp Minor
October 11 at 9 am | Episode 8: G Major and F Minor
