Come see what all the fuss is about! Madison’s classical music blog, The Well-Tempered Ear, lays it on the line: however you like your Bach, Bach Around The Clock has it. Click here to read The Ear’s detailed synopsis of the musical treats in store at the Festival, TOMORROW!
Bach Around The Clock gratefully acknowledges the media sponsorship of Wisconsin Public Radio. WPR, one of the premier sources, promoters, and supporters of classical music in the state of Wisconsin and beyond, has provided invaluable publicity, both on-air and online, for the upcoming festival. Thank you, WPR, for helping get the word out about the year’s BATC, and for having first brought BATC to this state in 2010.
As of Tuesday, February 27, the Festival Schedule has filled up, with a wonderful cornucopia of Bach selections for the audience to enjoy. Our musicians include young Suzuki violinists performing for the first time, professionals from the Madison Symphony, UW-Madison music students and faculty, solo vocalists and choirs, adult amateurs, a special guest pianist flying all the way from North Carolina…and even a surprise appearance by Glenn Gould!
Pure joy: five players at the top of their game, rehearsing for Sunday’s Chazen concert.
from left to right, John Aley, trumpet, Marc Fink, oboe, Dan Sullivan, harpsichord, Dawn Lawler, flute, and Leanne League, violin.
BATC is thrilled to connect with the Chazen Museum of Art. Three ensembles will represent the Festival on March 4th, with an all-Bach program including the Brandenburg Concerto No. 2, Bach selections from Suzuki Books 1-1, and the dramatic Harpsichord Concerto in D Minor, BWV 1052.
This concert is free and open to the public, but space is limited.
Join us, in person in Gallery III, or via livestream on the museum’s website.
