Program

“Exploring Bach’s Chaconne and Its Legacy” – through works by Missy Mazzoli, Luciano Berio, and Esa-Pekka Salonen

About the Artist

Although J.S. Bach is not typically categorized as “folk music,” much of his work found origins in the rhythms and tunes of dance. Trailblazing violinist Jennifer Koh explores these connections in a program based on one of Bach’s greatest dances, the Chaconne from his Violin Partita in D Minor. She will perform this pillar of classical music, followed by contemporary music that explicitly looks to it for inspiration.
