Left Coast Chamber Ensemble 3: Harpsichord Redux
Harpsichord Redux
A marvelous instrument, the harpsichord provided both structure and ornament to music in the Baroque era. It was supplanted almost entirely by the more powerful fortepiano for a time, but advocates like Wanda Landowska, a harpsichord virtuoso, helped establish the instrument's place in modern musical life. Left Coast showcases the harpsichord's many possibilities, beginning with Bach's G major Trio Sonata--a piece unsurpassed in beauty in the centuries since it was written--and Ligeti's brief solo works, which are maddening, hilarious and ecstatic all at once. We are excited to present works by two Bay Area composers: Tamper Resistant Dan Becker and a world premiere by Eric Zivian, as well as the harpsichord concerto written by Manuel de Falla for Landowska.  Eric Zivian and guest artist Katherine Heater are the featured harpsichordists.
