The B's of Music
Who knew you could jam out to the electricity of Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, and Barber's music? When you come and see "The B's of Music," you''l be doing exactly that. We have put together a jaw-dropping afternoon of virtuosic music that takes you on a journey from the Baroque Era to today. Join Aaron VanDanacker and friends as they present these works that will have you rocking out to classical music.
First, you will hear Bach's "Brandenburg Concerto No. 5" and awe over the chemistry between not one, not two, but THREE concerto soloists! This concerto breaks all conventional rules, but the keyboard gets the last word with a cadenza that moves at the speed of sound. Next, you will hear Beethoven's "Sonata Pathetique" on the piano. Listen as the pianist flirts between action-packed drama and heart-wrenching romance. And speaking of romance, Brahms' "Piano Trio No. 1" will make an appearance, featuring a cellist and a violinist who will both melt your heart. Finally, we wrap up the afternoon with Barbers Canzone for Flute and Piano. This work paints a myriad of images and draws the audience into a kaleidoscope of sounds and colors.
These composers are first and foremost RULE-BREAKERS! They took the compositional conventions of their time and re-wrote the playbook. "The B's of Music" will take you through some of the most virtuosic and innovative compositions of these composers. We are delighted to share this evening with you!
Doors open at 2:30pm and a light reception will follow.
