The musical forms of dance were the most essential and permeating components of music from the Baroque era. Those clearly defined elements determined tempos, moods or affects, and the structural architectures of the vast majority of Baroque musical works, both with texts and purely instrumental. Historians have noted that Bach’s music is intensely infused with the spirit of dance, whether expressing joy, felicity, sorrow, or devotion, Bach’s suites not only celebrate the dance, but also the phenomenal technical abilities of his musicians. All four Orchestral Suites will be presented in these concerts, full of exuberant sonority, captivating melody, and displays of virtuosity from ABS’s famous roster of “the best American specialists in early music” (The Washington Post).

 

“The dotted rhythms of the Ouverture came off with a jaunty elegance …
sparkled with variety as it charmed and beguiled from beginning to end.”
San Francisco Classical Voice
