From Purcell to Bach

May 20–21, 2022
Benaroya Hall

Julia Wesely

The most compelling interpreters of Baroque music take the Benaroya Hall stage to play and conduct in the popular Baroque & Wine Series! Before the concert, raise a glass in the Grand Lobby with wine tastings featuring some of the Northwest’s best vintners. Just $10 for 4 pours.

For this third and final program in the series, Handel’s inventive concerto unites the liturgical sounds of the organ with the elegance of a string orchestra. Muffat’s harmonic tribute to Italy blends German precision and French elegance to establish a new tradition of ensemble writing. Bach rearranges one of his famed Brandenburg Concertos for the harpsichord. It’s a tour de force for keyboard instruments, all in the capable hands of Anthony Romaniuk.
