Bach Cantatas

Thursday, October 20, 2022, 8PM
Miller Theatre at Columbia University

The brilliant and expressive pianist Simone Dinnerstein joins together with a stellar cast of musicians for a pair of Bach’s inventive cantatas and piano concertos. The resulting performance promises to move audiences, from the joyous opening phrases of the Piano Concerto in E major to the final words of the most performed and well-known of his sacred cantatas, Ich habe genug.

Dezron Douglas is one of the most in-demand young bassists in jazz today. He has performed and recorded with jazz luminaries such as Pharoah Sanders, Cyrus Chestnut, George Cables, Keyon Harrold, and Makaya McCraven. The New York-based composer, bandleader, and sideman was featured in Miller's Live from Columbia digital series over the pandemic, and now returns with his new quartet.
