Blue Hill Bach Celebrates J.S. Bach’s 339th Birthday

March 22 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm EDT

$10 – $25

Organ and Clavichord: Companions for Centuries

The most popular domestic keyboard instrument of the Baroque era, the clavichord was prized for its delicacy and expressive range. Bangor keyboard virtuoso Kevin Birch explores the intimate colors of three exquisite copies of clavichords from the mid-17th through late 18th centuries, along with St Francis’ magnificent Karl Wilhelm tracker organ, preceded by a discussion and demonstration of their mechanisms and importance to Bach and his contemporaries. The concert will feature music of Johann Jakob Froberger, Johann Caspar Ferdinand Fischer, and Johann Sebastian Bach.
