Elizabeth Field & Joseph Gascho Faculty Recital Bach & The Instrumentals

The recital will take place at 7:30 pm on Thursday, April 28 at the United Church at 1920 G Street, NW, featuring GW faculty members Elizabeth Field and Joseph Gascho. The event is a recital of baroque music for harpsichord and violin, featuring two German composers - Johann Sebastian Bach and Georg Phillipp Telemann. The program intertwines the music of the two composers much as their lives intertwined. Telemann was the godfather of Bach's son, Carl Phillipp Emmanuel Bach. Having auditioned for the same position in Leipzig, Teleman declined the offer, and the position was offered to (and accepted by) Bach. The program features two fantasias for solo violin by Telemann, two French Suites for solo harpsichord by Bach, and two sonatas for violin and harpsichord by Bach.
