Filament: Bach & Buxtehude
Saturday, April 6, 2024 | 7:30 p.m.
Philadelphia-based early music ensemble, Filament, performs music of the Baroque with “fervor and delight that make early music seem current and joyful” (Broad Street Review). In this new program, Filament explores the fantasies of the 17th century to Bach’s iconic Schübler Chorales. Filament recasts Bach’s original settings of these famous chorales, finding new colors and textures in the interplay of violin, viola da gamba, and historical keyboards–following in the footsteps of one of music’s most avid arrangers: Bach himself.
