Sarasota Orchestra – Bach: All in the Family: Cello Concerto in A Major by Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach – Cellist Natalie HelmOnline Concert and Event Listings of the Week - 13 March

Baroque master Johann Sebastian Bach fathered 20 children during his lifetime, and it should come as no surprise that several of them blossomed into remarkable composers in their own rights. This program features music by two of his sons, as well as music by Johann himself. Wilhelm Friedemann Bach was the 2nd oldest child and received rigorous keyboard and composition lessons from his father. His graceful Sinfonia in F Major was his first full symphonic work. Christopher Takeda and Jennifer Best Takeda, Associate and Assistant Concertmasters, combine forces in Johann Sebastian Bach’s Concerto for Two Violins. Frequently called Bach’s “Double Concerto”, the late Baroque masterpiece offers high energy music for the two soloists. Concluding the program is the Cello Concerto in A Major by Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, Johann’s 5th child. Sarasota Orchestra Principal Cellist Natalie Helm will bring to life this treasured work, providing a lively conclusion to this tribute to a remarkable musical family.

Streaming tickets $10.

Online Concert and Event Listings of the Week – 19 March

Julie Albers

In the midst of a global pandemic and social unrest, this is a program centered on grief but anchored in hope. The concert opens with Coleridge-Taylor Perkinson’s 1973 Lamentations for Solo Cello, subtitled “Black/Folk Song Suite.” Perkinson described this work as “the reflection and statement of a people’s crying out.” The rich depth of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s String Quintet in G minor will follow. Johannes Brahms’ Horn Trio, written to simulate the stages of grief in memory of his mother, leaves us on a note of hopefulness and acceptance.

Rarely performed today, Dall’Abaco had a fascinating musical career that led him to prominence in London, Paris, Vienna, and other European musical centers. These sonatas are full of melodies with the lightness of folk songs while the slow movements bring out the natural beauty of the cello’s tone.
