Champagne & Strings: An Evening of Solo Bach

"On one stave, for a small instrument, the man writes a whole world of the deepest thoughts and most powerful feelings." J. Brahms
Our program features Joseph Scheer, concertmaster of the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra, performing solo violin partitas and sonatas by Bach. These masterworks firmly established the technical capability of the violin as a solo instrument and served as a model for generations of composers including Ysaye and Bartok. Joseph Scheer was handpicked to be the concertmaster of the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra by Maestro John Williams himself, and over the course of his career has performed in virtually every great concert hall and with every great conductor and soloist imaginable. Joe will "talk and play" through these great works in our intimate concert space and IBIS "home base." Join us for a champagne reception after the concert!
