This event has ended.

Watch Live: Tune in Thursday, March 12 at 8pm for a livestream performance of Bach Collection

This event has been cancelled for public audiences.

In light of the rapidly changing COVID-19 information, Columbia University’s updated events policy strongly discourages events of more than 25 people on all campuses. In an abundance of caution, we have cancelled Thursday’s performance of Bach Collection. Existing ticket holders will receive an email communication regarding the cancellation. 

If Bach had a greatest-hits album, the works on this program would surely make the list. Starting with the first notes of the lilting melody of Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring to the final words of the most performed and well-known of his sacred cantatas, Ich habe genug, these moving, time-honored masterpieces remind us why they are some of the most cherished of Bach’s prolific oeuvre.



  • Concerto for Violin and Oboe in C minor, BWV 1060 (1736) (arr. Fischer, 1970)
  • Cantata Ich habe genug, BWV 82 (1727)
  • Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring (1723) (arr. Hess, 1926)
  • Chorale Prelude Ich ruf zu dir, Herr Jesu Christ, BWV 639 (1708-1715) (arr. Busoni, 1916)
