Back Before Bach

Bach before Bach presents two centuries of music performed on Renaissance winds, plucked strings and percussion, a continuum of compositional activity that led up to J.S. Bach’s innovative works, including ancient chants to set to Renaissance polyphony, Martin Luther’s hymn text set by 16th century German composer, virtuosic instrumental displays on a popular tune, courageous ventures into chromaticism, as well as the popular dances of the day that underlie and inform all Baroque music.
