poster for 2013 From Bach Disc 6
× Bach is often considered the patriarch of a Germanic tradition. But equally vibrant in Bach’s language are the elegance, color, and romance that characterize the music of France more than a century later. Disc VI celebrates the bewitching spirit of Bach’s French Suites that surfaces in Saint-Saëns’s seductive Fantaisie, Debussy’s ethereal Sonata for Flute, Viola, and Harp, and Tournier’s evocative Opus 34 Suite.
