Tallis Scholars: Heinrich Isaac at 500 

2017 marks the 500th anniversary of the death of Netherlandish Renaissance composer Heinrich Isaac, whose career spanned the European continent and encompassed both sacred and secular genres. Though less widely known today than his contemporary Josquin des Prez, his work has nonetheless been massively influential. The Tallis Scholars return to Miller to celebrate the legacies of these prolific composers, performing two of Isaac’s motets alongside selections from Josquin, John Browne, and Nicolas Gombert. 


Bach Piano Concertos

Bach wrote many concertos for harpsichord throughout his lifetime, and given his attraction to the possibilities of counterpoint and harmony, it comes as no surprise that one keyboard could not satisfy his imagination. In this program, Simone Dinnerstein teams up with fellow pianists Philip Lasser, Awadagin Pratt, and Dan Tepfer for an unparalleled performance of Bach’s concertos for one, two, three, and four keyboards.
