The 19th Dr. John Rae Lecture Bach and his Instruments

By Abigail Richardson-Schulte and Fredric DeVries

A copy (1748) of E G Haussamn's 1746 portrait of J S Bach, age 61

In partnership with the Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra, we are proud to co-present a special lecture in the HPO's 2018-2019 Bach Festival.

Johann Sebastian Bach (1685–1750) "was a German composer and keyboard player. During his lifetime Bach was chiefly known for his masterful organ and harpsichord playing; his great genius as a composer was only really discovered in the 19th century."
 
"Bach wrote organ music, including choral preludes, preludes, fugues, and toccatas; orchestral and chamber works, including the Branden­burg Concertos; and church music, including the St Matthew Passion." [www.musicwithease.com]

Join HPO musicians and Composer-in-Residence, Abigail Richardson-Schulte, as we explore the fascinating life and musical world of J. S. Bach. In addition, Fredric DeVries, Director of Music at St. Paul's United Church, will perform Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D minor on the organ.

Pre-registration is required for this event.
