Just Bach January Concert

Wed January 23 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Just Bach is a new monthly concert series in Madison, WI celebrating the music of Johann Sebastian Bach

This month’s concert features works for baroque flute. First on the program is the beautiful Trio Sonata in G Major, BWV 1038, for flute, violin and continuo. Following that is the Orchestral Suite #2 BWV 1067, for flute, strings and harpsichord, really a mini flute concerto. The program ends with Cantata 173 ‘Erhöhtes Fleisch und Blut’ (Exalted flesh and blood), scored for two flutes, strings and continuo, joined by a quartet of vocal soloists: soprano Sarah Brailey, mezzo-soprano Cheryl Bensman-Rowe, tenor Wesley Dunnagan and bass-baritone Paul Rowe. The orchestra of baroque period-instrument specialists will be led by concertmaster Kangwon Kim, and will include traverso flutists Linda Pereksta and Monica Steger.

The goal of this series is to share the immense range of Bach’s vocal and instrumental repertoire with the Madison community at large. The period-instrument orchestra will bring the music to life in the manner and style that Bach would have conceived. Members of the artistic team will prepare local singers to perform alongside seasoned professionals and develop a familiarity and love of the repertoire. The audience will be invited to sing along during the opening hymns and the closing cantata chorales.

The dream team bringing this venture to Madison consists of four individuals who have each dedicated a significant portion of their careers to the music of J.S. Bach: soprano Sarah Brailey, mezzo-soprano Cheryl Bensman-Rowe, bass-baritone Paul Rowe, and modern and baroque violist Marika Fischer Hoyt. See the Bio page for more extensive information on their careers and experience with bringing Bach’s music to the stage.

Just Bach dates this semester are Jan. 23, Feb. 20, Mar. 13, Apr. 24, and May 29. We are deeply grateful to Pastor Brad Pohlman and the congregation of Luther Memorial Church for hosting the series this Fall. We invite the Madison community to come spend a lunch hour with the sublime music of J.S. Bach – feed your body and soul!
