Washington Bach Consort presents The Art of the Keyboard – March 27th

J. Reilly Lewis and Scott Dettra join forces for an afternoon of virtuoso performances for voice, harpsichord and National Presbyterian Church’s magnificent Skinner organ. Bach was the consummate keyboard artist and this program highlights many of the different genres of great works he penned for solo harpsichord, two harpsichords and, of course, the instrument on which Bach’s preeminence as both a composer and performer was indisputable, the organ, the “King of Instruments.” A vocal quartet will also be performing Bach’s harmonizations of the various melodies on which the organ chorale preludes are based.

The program will include:
Concerto in C Major for 2 Harpsichords, BWV 1061
Excerpts from the Six Schubler Chorales and the Leipzig Eighteen Chorale Preludes
…and much more!
