Harpsichordist Ian Pritchard presents a program of harpsichord music by Johann Sebastian Bach alongside the music of earlier composers that influenced him. This latter category includes pieces from the Möller manuscript, an important source of Bach’s keyboard music that was copied by his older brother, Johann Christoph, and music reflecting the “competing” French and Italian styles of the early 18th century. Specific works include Bach’s Chromatic Fantasy and Fugue, BWV 903 and Capriccio on the Departure of the Beloved Brother BWV 992, as well as works by Buxtehude and Reincken, and keyboard transcriptions of music by Vivaldi and Lully.

As for all our events, you’ll have an opportunity to ask questions of the performer and try the recital instruments yourself. At this event, a special demonstration of the harpsichord and its construction and action will be offered.

Listen to examples of Ian’s playing on YouTube.

Ian is on the faculty at Colburn School Conservatory of Music in Los Angeles. His new J.S. Bach CD will be released soon. In addition to Bach, Ian works extensively in early Italian keyboard music and intavolatura. 

Keyboard instructors and students are especially invited. Join us!
