Description

Attention Bach aficionados!

Following the premier of her Bach recitals last fall, French pianist Hélène Papadopoulos returns to Union Arts Center for the second of a four-part series on Sunday March 29th. Hélené will continue playing the complete J.S. Bach’s Clavier-Übung in four recitals spanning over one year.

Hélène chose the Union Arts Center as one of the US venues where she is presenting the Clavier-Übung Project during this 2019-20 season. She is playing the complete J.S. Bach’s Clavier-Übung in a series of four recitals spanning over one year: Partitas No.1, 2, 4 (Clavier-Übung 1), Partitas No.3, 5, 6 (Clavier-Übung 1), Italian Concerto, French Overture, and Four Duets (Clavier-Übung 2 & 3), and Goldberg Variations (Clavier-Übung 4).

Hélène Papadopoulos is an artist with a complex and highly sensitive personality. She is a searching artist who seeks deep insight into the music and into the art of piano playing. For her there is no detail that is too small to be part of the global conception of a work. Never sacrificing details, never abandoning the big line to reveal musical subtleties in a natural manner.

Recital on Sunday, March 29, 2020 at 3:00pm will feature 3 J.S. Bach’s partitas (Clavier-Übung I):

Partita No.3 in A minor, BWV 827

Fantasia, Allemande, Corrente, Sarabande, Burlesca, Scherzo, Gigue

Partita No.5 in G major, BWV 829

Praeambulum, Allemande, Corrente, Sarabande, Tempo di Minuetto, Passepied, Gigue

Partita No.6 in E minor, BWV 830

Toccata, Allemande, Corrente, Air, Sarabande, Tempo di Gavotta, Gigue

The Clavier-Übung Project is an ambitious project: "This project is not just about playing Bach’s music to an audience. I also want to connect this music with younger generations through teaching and I want to make a connection between Bach and contemporary era by asking composers to think about new languages inspired by his music." [Hélène Papadopoulos]

Next concerts in the Clavier-Übung series at UACNY (Sundays at 3pm):

- July 26, 2020: Goldberg Variations

- November 29, 2020: Italian Concerto, French Overture, and Four Duets
