      EVENT DETAILS
      An Evening in the Home of J.S. Bach - Gt. Barrington

      The world-renowned Early Music soprano, Julianne Baird, offers a solo recital, which provides a glimpse into the domestic music of the 18th century, and the musical tastes of the Bach family. Most of the works are from the Notebook for Anna Magdalena, a manuscript notebook that Johann Sebastian Bach presented to his second wife, Anna Magdalena. The recital will include arias: Gedenke doch, Bist du bei mir, Willst du dein Herz mir schenken, Schlummert ein, arias from Bachs Hunt Cantata BWV 208, and from his Wedding Cantata BWV 202; and harpsichord works, such as the First Prelude of The Well-Tempered Clavier BWV 846/1, and the Aria of the Goldberg Variations BWV 988/1, among others. Songs and arias from his sons Carl Philipp Emanuel and Johann Christian Bach, and from his grandson Wilhelm Friedrich Ernst Bach will round out the program. Julianne Baird, soprano, and Christine Gevert, harpsichord
