    Organ Mini-Festival

    Part One, 9am-11am: Art of Fugue JOAN LIPPINCOTT

    Dr. Joan Lippincott (Professor Emerita, Westminster Choir College) opens the fourth biennial BEMF Organ Mini-Festival with "one of the loftiest accomplishments of the human mind" (Christoph Wolff, Harvard University): Die Kunst der Fuge of Johann Sebastian Bach. Through variation of the theme, diversity of styles, complexity of counterpoint, and expressiveness of harmonic language, we are brought into a realm of the highest art.

    Part Two, 11:30am-1:30pm: Rhetorical Forms in Lutheran Worship Balint Karosi

    Balint Karosi (First Lutheran Church) and Dr. Christopher Boyd Brown (Boston University) will explore rhetorical connections between the 18th century Lutheran sermon and "stylus fantasticus" organ works by J. S. Bach and Buxtehude.

    Part Three, 2pm-4pm: Father and Son Together WILLIAM PORTER

    William Porter (Eastman School of Music) will explore changing concepts of fantasias, fugues, and sonatas in the 18th century, as reflected in the works of J. S. and C. P. E. Bach. This program is also a celebration of the new edition of C. P. E. Bach's organ works, recently completed by Annette Richards and David Yearsley.
