Bach and Vivaldi a lo Latino!
May 9, 2014
Bach's fugue style and influence transcends time and cultures. This program presents a vivid illustration of his impact on the music of Latin American composers, such as Villa-Lobos's Bachianas Brasileiras, Piazzola's Fugata, and Romero's Fuga con Pajarillo. These works will be performed on period instruments a well as Latin American instruments. Also, Latin rhythms will be added to reimagine the music of Vivaldi and Bach.
