Boulder Bach Festival: Festival Week: The Intimacy of J.S. Bach


Sunday, May 15
4:00 PM – 5:30 PM


First Congregational Church, Boulder, 1128 Pine St, Boulder, CO 80302

Event Description

“The final concert of Festival Week offers J.S. Bach in several genres, starting with the profound Cello Suite in C Minor, performed by Coleman Itzkoff. The program continues with Cantata BWV 196, Der Herr denket an uns, an early work that flows with delight and dancing joy. The vocal quartet returns for a motet by Johann Christoph Bach that reveals why JSB called him “the profound Bach.” Christopher Holman offers a chorale prelude overwhelming in contrapuntal mastery, performed on the organ. Ysmael Reyes, baroque flutist joins Carrettin, Kim, Bak, Itzkoff, Recuber, and Holman for J.S. Bach’s ethnomusicological pan-European set of dances, the Orchestra Suite in B Minor. A pre-concert lecture covering the repertoire will take place in the chapel.”
