The influence of the 17th-century instrumental stylus fantasticus can be heard in numerous works of J.S. Bach. Andrew Fouts and Justin Wallace present a special program that highlights this fantastic tradition. We’ll hear path-breaking works by Bach’s virtuosic German predecessors—Dietrich Buxtehude, Johan Paul von Westhoff, Johann Jakob Walther, and Heinrich Biber—but you especially won’t want to miss Bach’s brilliant Sonata for Violin and Harpsichord in E Major, BWV 1016.
The Washington Bach Consort presents eight chamber concerts in two intimate and welcoming spaces perfectly matched to the repertoire. Friday performances take place in downtown DC at the über-modern Live! at 10th & G. Enjoy a drink at the Bach Bar before the concert and stay afterwards for a beer, chocolate, or dessert tasting by one of our local partners. Ample garage parking is available, and the Metro Center and Gallery Place Metro stations are only steps away.
