Polyphemus Solo Series: Leipzig from Kuhnau to Bach
The Polyphemus Solo Series will feature performance and conversation and in an elegant, intimate space, with fine food and drink. Programs will be tightly focused on historical moments or ideas, and audiences will be invited to engage and discuss the ideas and music presented. Seating is limited to 20.
Johann Sebastian Bach is here juxtaposed with his predecessor in Leipzig Johann Kuhnau, to better understand the city's musical culture and Bach's later keyboard works. Unlike many great composers of the baroque, Bach and Kuhnau were primarily teachers. Their works needed to do more than please a prince; they needed to both thrill and instruct, delight and enlighten.
