Music by Bach. Barefoot Chamber Concerts presents Janet See, flute, and Kathy Perl, harpsichord.
Barefoot Chamber Concerts presents Janet See, flute, and Katherine Robert Perl, harpsichord, in a program of music by Bach. This Friday evening concert series offers a new way to start the weekend, with great music in a relaxed setting. The series is committed to musical excellence without the formality of the conventional concert setting. Concerts will start at 6 p.m. and will last 60-75 minutes without intermission. Light refreshments will be available, and there will be ample time to move on to other evening entertainments.
The series' second concert of this season features two of the legends of the Bay Area baroque music scene, Janet See, flute, and Kathy Perl, harpsichord, playing a program of music by Bach.
The program will be based on Bach's sonatas for flute and obligato harpsichord, but also include some shorter and rarely heard pieces. The obligato sonatas are essentially trio sonatas in which the right hand of the harpsichord plays (most of the time) one of the treble parts of the trio. In this arrangement, the balance between the two upper voices of the ensemble is unusually perfect, and in the rich acoustic of St. Marks, this concert will be a memorable experience.
