In this concert, pianist Betty Oberacker will perform three major keyboard compositions from the greatest master of the Baroque Period, Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750). The concert opens with the radiant Toccata in D major, BWV 912. The dramatic English Suite in A minor, BWV 807 follows, brilliantly displaying Bach’s prowess in delineating the qualities of each of the traditional dance forms which comprise the Baroque Suite. Concluding the program is the mighty Chromatic Fantasia and Fugue, BWV 903, surely one of the most spectacular works Bach ever composed.
