Bach at St Cecilia's Hall 1981

Tuesday, June 9, 1981
8 pm
1981, eighth concert

Last in a series of eight concerts entitled 'Bach at St Cecilia's Hall', given at St Cecilia's Hall in the summer of 1981.


A Jazz Invention

Bach in jazz style, Schubert (oder die Melodie) in late-Saturday-night style. Handel goes hi-hat, orchestrations of great popular classics, original jazz numbers.  What more could one want to bring the Bach concerts to a cheerful close?
The addition of a string ensemble this year makes it possible for the Trio to branch into some concertante music with a dialogue between the original accompaniment and a jazzed solo part.
