Julia Brown, Harpsichord
All My Children: the Bach Legacy
Saturday, February 15, 2020, 2-4pm

Join us for an afternoon of the music of the Bach sons: Wilhelm Friedemann, Carl Philip Emmanuel, Johann Christian and Johann Christoph Friedrich. Brown will explore the expressive qualities in the music of Bach's children, who lived in a time of transition and change in musical taste. The fugues, sonatas, character pieces and fantasias, display both contrapuntal and galant characteristics, each one writing in a deeply moving and personal voice.

Julia Brown recently relocated to Grand Rapids, Michigan, after twenty years in Eugene, OR. She is currently the Director of Music and Organist at Mayflower Congregational Church in Grand Rapids. Her many recordings with Naxos, including works of W. F. Bach, J. S. Bach, Buxtehude and Scheidemann, have gained high critical acclaim. Reviews hail her as an "unquestionably first-class artist and superb technician... exceptionally sensitive", "the playing...projects a warmly musical personality."

In demand as a historical keyboardist and collaborative artist, Brown's performances include chamber music, orchestral repertoire, and continuo playing in addition to solo recitals. Brown has appeared in concert in North and South America and in Europe, having performed at the Oregon Bach Festival, Grand Rapids Bach Festival, Astoria Music Festival, Chico Bach Festival, American Guild of Organists Regional and National Conventions, Organ Historical Society Conventions, Latin American Organist Conventions,
and National Public Radio. She has performed with such eminent conductors as Giancarlo Guerrero, Matthew Halls, Marcelo Leninger and Anton Armstrong.

Born in Rio de Janeiro, Brown studied piano, harpsichord and organ in her native Brazil before receiving her MM and DMA from Northwestern University as a student of Wolfgang Rübsam.
