Bicket Conducts Bach

Apr30
8:00 PM
Rameau, Poulenc, Bach
Thursday, April 30, 2015

Bach’s regal Orchestral Suite No. 3, most beloved for its Air “on the G string,” exudes 18th-century elegance. Almost 200 years later, Poulenc revived the unexpected mix of Baroque grace and humor in his Concert champêtre, which features a solo harpsichord part, played here by Kristian Bezuidenhout. The CSO completes this charming program with Stravinsky’s arrangement of preludes and fugues from Bach’s The Well-Tempered Clavier.

Program

  • Rameau Dance Suite from Platée
  • Poulenc Concert champêtre
  • Bach (arr. Stravinsky) Four Preludes and Fugues from The Well-Tempered Clavier
  • Bach Orchestral Suite No. 3
