The Bach and Mozart Connection refers to Mozarts early exposure to the music of J. S. Bach, Bachs sons and Handel at the Viennese home of Baron Gottfied van Swieten, a Dutch diplomat, librarian, music lover and patron of Viennas best known composers (Mozart, Haydn and Beethoven) who worked for the Austrian Ebach-mozart-imagempire during the 18th. He also collected manuscripts by the Bach family, Handel and other baroque composers when in Berlin serving as envoy to the court of Frederick the Great. Van Swieten hosted music readings at his home in Vienna every Sunday during which those pieces would be explored. Mozart found the music instructional and inspirational and transcribed many of the works, particularly the fugues for a string ensemble and gave him invaluable insight into their contrapuntal genius. Perhaps, also, historically, it is in a way the beginning of interest in performing music of an earlier time setting the stage for our own current concert programming tradition. It took almost one hundred years after Bachs death for Mendelssohn to return the St. Matthew Passion to the Thomaskirche in Leipzig. Strange to think such a project would be ground breaking. To add further intrigue, all of the Bach works on the program have some interesting twists about their origins, authorship and instrumentation which will be discussed further at the concert.    Myron Lutzke
