The Bach series has evolved over the years, encompassing both historically informed performances and modern interpretations, and offering listeners a wide variety of musical lenses through which to view Bach's masterful oeuvre.
Past and present collide in the current iteration of Miller’s long-running Bach series, which puts contemporary composers in dialogue with the Baroque master. Each has a different affinity for Bach: Michael Gordon admires his structural innovation; Helmut Lachenmann continues his quest to re-define performers’ technical boundaries; while Sofia Gubaidulina mirrors Bach’s spirituality in her transcendent compositions. A variety of soloists join together with Signal, this year’s ensemble-in-residence, for these performances, including renowned harpsichordist Kristian Bezuidenhout, praised for his “extraordinary new ideas about old music” (Boston Globe).
