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

NEW THIS YEAR: DANCEBREAK!
Immerse yourself in the folk tradition at the heart of this year’s PUC125 series through dance classes offered in between three of the PUC125 events. This class will be tailored to Baroque music performed at the concerts by Jennifer Koh, and led by a professional dancer.  Embrace the folk spirit in these events, free to all ticketholders. This Dancebreak will take place in the Assembly Room at Nassau Presbyterian Church.

PLEASE NOTE:  You must have purchased tickets to one of the concerts in order to attend Dancebreak.  Tickets will be checked at the door.

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.
