Concert 1 of 3. Don't miss this rare musical event.
Fredonia piano professor and Bach specialist, Fr. Sean Duggan, will present J.S. Bach's complete Well-Tempered Clavier over three successive evenings celebrate Bach's 333rd birthday.
The Well-Tempered Clavier consists of 48 preludes and fugues, traversing twice through all the major and minor keys. 48 divided by 3 = 16, so each evening will consist of 16 preludes and fugues in consecutive order.
"It sounds daunting but, because of Bach's wide expressive range & limitless musical imagination, there is enough variety to keep the listener riveted throughout the series," commented Duggan. "The cycle as a whole is truly one of the great miracles of Western music."
Event is free.
