On April 11 at 4 p.m., a Brattleboro Music Center concert featuring the Two-Part Inventions of J.S. Bach will also present a gallery of artwork inspired by these astonishing little pieces, as local artists engage in a sensory exploration of these well-loved musical miniatures of Bach.
Susan Dedell, Artistic Director of the BMC's Blanche Moyse Centennial Year, had long planned a concert featuring the fifteen 2-part Inventions of J.S. Bach as the centerpiece.
Members of the BMC Faculty will play Bach's Inventions in their complete original form for keyboard as well as in a variety of adaptations for other instruments. Participating faculty include pianists Chongyo Shin, Bruce Griffin, Vladimir Odinokikh, Luba Lischynsky, Susan Dedell, Raquel Moreno; violinists Kathy Andrew and Peggy Spencer; cellist Judith Serkin; flutists Alex Ogle and Robin Matathias; and trumpeter Dan Farina. Also playing on the program are BMC students Kai Ming Pu and Eva Fabian, violin; Amy van Loon and Stephanie LeQuier, flute; Tim Hueber, trumpet; and Hannah Ruhl, piano.
