Emily O’Brien presents “Bach’s Organ Trio Sonatas for the Recorder”
July 28 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT
The organ trio sonatas of J.S. Bach are intimate, thrilling, sublime, touching, and uplifting. While they are brilliantly polyphonic, they are ultimately conceived for just a single player to perform on the organ. The recorder is capable of expressive subtleties of articulation and shaping tones that an organ is not, but a lone recorder player cannot hope to cover all three parts at once–or can she? In this brilliant multi-tracked video project, Emily O’Brien plays her own transcriptions of Bach’s amazing works for recorder ensemble using seven recorders ranging from soprano down to the sonorous contrabass.
