Salish Sea Early Music Festival wraps up with Bach, Vivaldi

Posted

The final installation of the 2022 Salish Sea Early Music Festival will bring the works of two classical music icons of the 18th century; Antonio Vivaldi and Johann Sebastian Bach.

With a performance at 2 p.m. Sunday, May 29 at Saint Paul's Episcopal Church in Port Townsend, listeners will be treated with the melodic, sunny tunes of Italian composer Vivaldi along with the intellectual, layered tones of German composer Bach.

Two of Bach’s most profound orchestral works will be offered in "Bach: Fifth Brandenburg Concerto” and “Triple Concerto.”

Jonathan Oddie, newly-named professor of harpsichord at the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana, returns to perform two of the most moving and difficult works by Bach for harpsichord and orchestra with soloists baroque violinist Carrie Krause and baroque flutist Jeffrey Cohan, along with baroque string orchestra.

Krause will perform Vivaldi’s violin concerto “La Stravaganza No. 3 in G Major” and Cohan will perform Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach’s Flute Concerto in D Major, alongside the two fabulous concerti by Bach, both for solo harpsichord, flute, and violin with orchestra.

Performers in the accompanying baroque string orchestra include Elizabeth Phelps on baroque violin, Courtney Kuroda on baroque violin, Lindsey Strand-Polyak playing the baroque viola, and Martin Bonham on the baroque cello.

The final concert performance of the year from the Salish Sea Early Music Festival brings a suggested donation of $15, $20, or $25, and attendees 18 and under get in for free. Masks and vaccination are required to attend.
