Exploring the musical genius of J.S. Bach with video performances, artist interviews, world premieres, and special collaborations.
Our Bach Today series combines artist interviews, articles, and world premiere performances that focus on Bach’s lasting presence in our musical lives today.
Bach While Away
Over the four weeks of Bach at Home 2020, OSL ensemble members, YOSL artists, and esteemed guest artists will be performing some of their favorite solo pieces by Bach, filmed in their homes and home communities.
Among Bach’s most well-known and beloved works, the Brandenburg Concertos have been a core of OSL’s repertory for over four decades. Bach at Home 2020 showcases a performance of the second Brandenburg Concerto by Orchestra of St. Luke’s, filmed at The DiMenna Center for Classical Music.
Bach at Home 2020 juxtaposes two contrasting versions of Bach’s iconic Goldberg Variations: Pierre Hantaï reprises his performance of the complete, original Goldberg Variations from the 2019 OSL Bach Festival with five selections that encapsulate the whole of the work, and OSL performs Principal Conductor Bernard Labadie’s 2000 arrangement of the Goldberg Variations for Baroque ensemble, which had its U.S. premiere last year at Carnegie Hall as part of the OSL Bach Festival.
