Dances to Eternity— Bach Trinity Cantatas III

6:30pm— Festival Talks II | From First Date to Last Note

This evening features four works that build from Bach’s elegant & spirited 5th French Suite for solo piano to full ensemble in Bach’s towering Trinity Cantata BWV 20 of 1724, Bach’s first season as Cantor in Leipzig. At the center of the program are two works by Composer-in-Residence Aaron Jay Kernis featuring a NY premiere performance of First Club Date with cellist Matt Haimovitz, as well as Effortlessly, Love Flows performed by Ronnie Oliver Jr. and the Chelsea Music Festival Chamber Choir.

This evening’s reception by German House Restaurant is sponsored by the German International School New York
