Event description
24 Musicians Perform the Complete Bach Well-Tempered Clavier Book 1

About this Event

Legacy Arts International proudly presents 24 world-class pianists, harpsichordists, and keyboardists at the Robert L. Annis Playhouse on the Westminster Choir College campus to present a marathon performance of J.S. Bach's iconic Well-Tempered Clavier, Book 1. Featuring performances on the piano, harpsichord, and the cutting edge, next-generation software instrument BitKlavier (an invention of Princeton University composer Dan Trueman), this community-oriented concert is a rare opportunity to experience Bach's epic Well-Tempered Clavier as a single unified work via the perspectives of 24 unique artists who come from the fields of early, classical, jazz and experimental music.

Through the lens of these diverse and gifted musicians, the Well-Tempered Clavier becomes a radical listening experience, and Bach emerges as a contemporary figure—experimenting and workshopping ideas as any composer does today.

The musical “happening” is curated by visionary pianist Adam Tendler, and produced by Princeton-based non-profit musical arts organization Legacy Arts International. LAI facilitates cultural exchange, initiates performances and educational programs to build vibrant artistic communities, and documents important artistic legacies. Most recently, LAI launched a signature cultural exchange program designed and facilitated for the Department of Music at Princeton and the prestigious Italian Imola Piano Academy.

Cristina Altamura, Founder of Legacy Arts International, says:

“This event brings together distinguished keyboard faculty from Rutgers and Westminster as well as local and NYC pianists who are an important part of the fabric of our community. I have performed on this kind of concert produced by pianist (and recent recipient of Lincoln Center’s Emerging Artist Award), Adam Tendler at Spectrum in NYC and Columbia University’s Italian Academy. Each time it was a joyful, spiritual and bonding experience for all, so much so that I've asked Tendler to curate it again for Legacy Arts...thus the Princeton Edition of 24.”

NOTE: Reservations are required. A suggested donation of $20 goes towards the LAI Travel Grant for music students to travel abroad to summer institutes and festivals.
