J.S. Bach portrait

Grand Teton Music Festival holds OPEN REHEARSAL: BACH & SONS on Friday, July 23, 10 a.m., at Walk Festival Hall in Teton Village.

Reinhard Goebel, conductor, and Paolo Bordignon, harpsichord

Hear rehearsals of:

JS BACH, Overture (Suite) No. 3 in D major

CPE BACH, Symphony in F major

WF BACH, Harpsichord Concerto in E minor

JCF BACH, Symphony in B-flat major

JC BACH, Overture and Suite from Amadis de Gaule

Music takes you to far-off destinations—in this case, to Germany for a Baroque romp with the great Bach family. An Overture by the great father himself, Johann Sebastian, launches a festive, high-energy program for chamber-sized orchestra led by a distinguished guest specialist, Reinhard Goebel. Keyboard lovers will relish Paolo Bordignon’s quintessentially Baroque harmonies on the harpsichord. An opera-based Overture and Suite of the youngest Bach, Johann Christian (known as the “London” Bach, progressive in his times), provides listeners with a musical reminder of the fascinating differences between father and sons.
