Duke Vespers Ensemble Concert on "The Leipzig Legacy: Bach and His Predecessors"
The Duke Vespers Ensemble will present a free concert on "The Leipzig Legacy: Bach and His Predecessors" featuring Beverly Biggs, Elaine Funaro, Robert Parkins, and Lex Silbiger on the Bach harpsichord concerto.
The ensemble will be joined by the resident Baroque orchestra Cappella Baroque, consisting of professional period instrument players from the region. Together they will perform works ranging from intimate motets by Schein and Kuhnau to more grand works like Schelle’s chorale cantata Christus der ist mein leben, Teleman’s Concerto Polonois, and two compositions by J.S. Bach, the Concerto in A minor for Four Harpsichords and cantata 78 Jesu der du meine seele.
