Johann Sebastian Bach – Selections from Cello Suite No. 4 in E-flat Major, BWV 1010
Frédéric Chopin – Selections from Cello Sonata in G Major, Op. 65
Frédéric Chopin found great inspiration in the music of Johann Sebastian Bach, who enjoyed immensely renewed appreciation in Europe around the time young Chopin made his way to Paris. Chopin became well-known in his adopted home, but must have felt like an outsider in various ways. He didn’t like the spotlight of a concert stage, preferring to play for small gatherings, and he longed for his homeland of Poland, writing many pieces inspired by his heritage.
In this Comfy Concert program, we will share a modern-day story of finding one’s place in a new community, The Day You Begin, by Jacqueline Woodson, interspersed with the music of Bach and Chopin. We hope our audience will be inspired to share their own stories and build bridges with others!
Comfy Concerts brings quality musical performances to busy parents, friends, and relatives of young children, while including the younger generation with age-appropriate stories, discussions, and quiet activities in the midst of the music-making. The activities will be geared toward children ages 4-11, but all ages are welcome.
Informal, intimate, and inspiring, Comfy Concerts are an ideal way to introduce your child to a concert setting.
