Concert!   Leave a comment

At the excellent Bach’s Lunch series at Trinity Lutheran Church in Manhattan Beach this Friday, February 1, at 12:15.

You’ll hear all kinds of music you won’t hear elsewhere.

My program is a study in contrasts — contrasting composers, musical periods and styles, and the contrast of composers who are both living and no longer so.

One example — a setting of the melody of  “Jesu, joy of man’s desiring.” The familiar Bach setting is a soaring, stately melody over an ornamented accompaniment; Lionel Rogg’s composition has the melody in the lower part, with a more dancing, playful accompaniment.

Do come!

The concert is 30 minutes, and the church’s address is 1340 11th St., Manhattan Beach 90266.
