BPA Chamber Series: The Art of Fugue

BPA Chamber Series: The Art of Fugue

Performance: April 24, 2016
Sunday @ 3:00 p.m.

Join us at Bainbridge Performing Arts, 200 Madison Avenue North, Bainbridge Island, for a complete performance of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Art of Fugue (Die Kunst der Fugue), BWV 1080.

Left unfinished, Art of Fugue was the final piece written by Bach. It consists of a set of increasingly complex fugues and canons written for four voices, though the exact instrumentation used in modern performance can vary from one performance to the next. The work is most often performed on the keyboard, but it has been done using string quartet, brass quintet, saxphone quartet, and even beer bottles!

Our instrumentation is for a mix of nine wind and string players: oboe, English horn, two bassoons, violin, two violas, and two cellos. This particular configuration of Bach’s amazing work provides a rich variety of voices and textures. The performance will run about 70 minutes, and there will be a brief intermission.

Our ensemble is comprised of the following members and friends of Orchestra Seattle:

Yuh-Pey Lin, Oboe
John Dimond, English horn
Judith Lawrence, Bassoon
Jeff Eldridge, Bassoon
Stephen Provine, Violin
Katherine McWilliams, Viola
Grant Hanner, Viola
Dave Beck, Cello
Julie Reed, Cello
