Additional time info:

In a special concert, Artistic Director Matthew Dirst performs a solo recital that pairs Bach’s iconic Italian Concerto with two of his most sumptuous French dance suites for harpsichord.
Uniting the national treasures of Italy and France in one iconic program, Bach on Harpsichord showcases two of the most fashionable genres of Baroque music: the concerto and the suite. The concerto in the Italian style easily transfers to the harpsichord with its two manuals, creating an orchestral texture through just one instrument. Complimenting Bach’s regal, formalized concerto writing, each French-style suite delicately portrays the subtle and complex rhythms of French dances.
