Homage to Bach
Time & Location
About The Event
This program pays homage to one of the most influential composers of all times : J. S.
Bach. NAVO Consort will open the program with the Orchestral Suite no. 1, followed by
a unique arrangement by Boris Vayner for string quartet of the Chaconne from the second
Partita in D minor for unaccompanied violin. Bach’s Chaconne is one of his most iconic
instrumental works. Oboist Margaret Marco and violinist Véronique Mathieu will share
the stage to offer a performance of the double concerto for violin and oboe. In this work,
Bach used a truly unique instrumentation, and to this day, not many composers took up
the challenge of writing for such dissimilar instruments. The concert will conclude with
the celebrated Brandenburg Concerto no. 3, a gem from the baroque era.
