A small ensemble comprised of the North Carolina Baroque Orchestra Chamber Players David Wilson (violin), Francis Blaker (recorder), Barbara Krumdieck (cello) and Barbara Weiss (harpsichord) will be playing a free preview in-store show at Horizon Records on Friday, March 23rd at 7pm. Included in the program will be two movements of Bach Trio Sonata BWV 529, the “Anunciation” movement of Biber’s “Rosary Sonatas,” and possibly another surprise or two. There will be seating as Horizon sets up its intimate and very informal house-concert-style space (aka the Horizon Recital Hall).
We are so pleased and honored to offer this unique concert here in support of SC Bach with their instrumental collaborators The North Carolina Baroque Orchestra. Join us for a rare opportunity to take in music by J S Bach and his Baroque contemporaries while sitting in a record store next to a Café; kinda somewhat like Bach’s penchant for composing for and playing at Zimmerman’s Café in Leipzig in the 1720’s where the Brandenburg Concertos had their early life. Besides a couple of movements from Bach’s remarkable Trio piece, we will also be treated to an excerpt from Biber’s brilliant and visionary Rosary Sonata, and perhaps some tastes of music by Corelli and Schmelzer. The North Carolina Baroque Chamber players will be performing on various combinations of Violin, Cello, Recorder and Harpsichord. Talk about old school!! Join us, it’s Free.
