The keyboard was Bach’s wheelhouse. His brilliant and rarely-performed double concertos will feature harpsichordists Ignacio Prego and Byron Schenkman. Because music was not created in a vacuum, our program explores influences on Bach’s music, including a string concerto by Bach’s friend, Telemann: by far the more famous composer in their day.

Mr. Prego won first prize is the 2012 Westfield International Harpsichord Competition and appears in this concert with grant support from the Programme for the Internationalisation of Spanish Culture (PICE) of Acción Cultural Española (AC/E) in the Mobility category.
