12nov3:00 pmPortland Baroque Orchestra: A Musical Offering BachOld and NewLive or Recorded:Live Event

Event Details

Legend tells us that Johann Sebastian Bach exclaimed, “’Tis Prussian Blue! It fades easily!” when describing the music of his son Carl Philipp Emanuel. This was surely a teasing reference to the galant style, with its open musical textures and general avoidance of “old-school” counterpoint. Our program offsets the contrapuntal wizardry of Bach senior with this new style – and is especially topical for your new Artistic Director in featuring a set of variations on God Save the King by Johann Christian, the so-called “London Bach.”
