Description

#DECLASSIFIED
“In Bach’s Hand: Notes and Accounts”
Anne McLean and Jan Lauridsen, Music Division

Bach-lovers can enjoy a closeup look at several treasures from the Music Division’s vaults in this display and discussion. On view will be holograph manuscripts of two of the composer’s cantatas: Es ist das Heil uns kommen her, BWV 9, which shows a rare note from the composer to himself, and Meine Seel’ erhebt den Herren, BWV 10. Among other items of interest to be seen is a page of four handwritten receipts documenting payments to Bach for musical services rendered.

At five minutes before the start of the event, all empty seats will be available on a first-come, first served basis to all patrons. Because of the limited space in the venue, we encourage patrons who are unable to obtain a reservation to add their name to the waitlist; it is possible that events may be repeated if there is sufficiently high interest.
