A Preview with Kristian Bezuidenhout

The Baroque Vanguard

Kristian Bezuidenhout, Ensemble Signal

Saturday, April 27, 2013, 8pm

Miller Theatre at Columbia University

This event has ended.

    Previously heard in Miller’s new-music series, Ensemble Signal returns with crackerjack harpsichordist Bezuidenhout to explore the vanguard of a different era. Jean-Féry Rebel’s daringly dissonant “Chaos” depicts the emergence of the universe from the turbulent cosmos. Familiar and lesser-known works by the Bach family follow, including J.S.’s famous Harpsichord Concerto in D minor. A modern work inspired by Vivaldi’s canons and fiery string writing concludes the program—Michael Gordon’s Weather 1, another piece inspired by the chaotic nature of the elements.
