With the SoCal Bach Festival under the artistic leadership of our Music Director Martin Haselböck we want to take up this tradition.
Bach was not only a church composer, for the concert hall he did write concerti and suites asking every single player for outmost virtuosity:
Many of these pieces were written for ZIMMERMANNS KAFFEEHAUS, a coffee place with adjoint musical stage. The b-Minor Suite is scored for Flute and strings and is closing with the famous Badenerie (for sure you do know this tune !), the two violin Concerto is featuring one of the most beautiful slow movements of Bach, the Oboe/Violin Concerto is a showpiece, true musical competition between the two solo instruments. Our soloists will introduce each piece to give you more information about these wonderful pieces of music.
