Inside the Classics: And Bach Begat...

BACH
Brandenburg Concerto No. 3

BEETHOVEN/Steinberg
Grosse Fuge

He had 21 children of his own, but J.S. Bach’s musical offspring are innumerable—the last 250 years’ worth of composers who have looked to him as Papa. In German, the name Bach means brook, and of all the big-name composers who’ve drunk from his amazing stream, no one did so more deeply or powerfully than Beethoven. Inspired by Bach’s mastery of the great musical form of his time, the fugue, Beethoven—a hundred years later—created an awe-inspiring fugue of his own.

Please note: This event is recommended for ages 13 and over. All concerts are open to children ages 6 and over when accompanied by an adult.
