Everyone knows that Bach played the organ and the harpsichord; but did you know that he also had a chance to play early versions of the fortepiano, the instrument which eventually evolved into the modern piano? In Bach at the Keyboard you’ll be able to hear Bach on all three of these instruments, played by some of their finest proponents: a Steinway concert grand piano, a John Philips harpsichord, and the Brombaugh Opus 9 tracker organ in the loft of Schroeder Hall, each tuned to a different temperament. The repertoire will be a fascinating cross-section of Bach’s works for solo keyboard, including inventions, variations, preludes and fugues, dance movements and chorale settings. Don’t miss this chance to compare and contrast!
