Extravaganza for Four Harpsichords & Strings
March 19 @ 3:30 pm - 6:00 pm
Four virtuoso harpsichordists, Elliot Figg, Frances Fitch, Lenora McCroskey and Peter Sykes will be joined by the period string ensemble ‘Arpeggione’ to present our annual birthday celebration concert in honor of Johann Sebastian Bach. They will perform the rarely-heard Concerto in C-major and Concerto in D-minor by Bach for three harpsichords and strings, the Banchetto Musicale, No. 1 by Johann Hermann Schein for strings and harpsichord continuo, plus an extremely-rare performance of the Concerto in A-minor for four harpsichords by Bach, adapted from Vivaldi.
This concert is co-sponsored by H. Woody Brock and Scobie Ward as part of the Gloucester Meetinghouse Foundation’s Autumn-Winter-Spring Series. We are committed to presenting musical, cultural and civic events for entertainment and betterment of the Cape Ann community that are not available anywhere else. The sound of four harpsichords and the string ensemble in the spacious, warm and clear acoustics of the Meetinghouse will delight the audience with a unique a musical feast.
