The Faculty Artist Series at the Yale School of Music presents harpsichordist Arthur Haas in a solo recital on Wednesday, January 21 at 7:30 pm.
1685 had far-reaching consequences for the history of music. Three of the most distinguished Baroque musicians and composers were born that year: Johann Sebastian Bach, George Frederic Handel, and Domenico Scarlatti. This recital will celebrate these composers’ birth year with Handel’s Suite in E Major, three sonatas by Scarlatti, and Bach’s Chromatic Fantasy and Fugue.
In addition, Haas will perform music written in or around 1685 by Henry Purcell, Bernardo Pasquini, and Jean-Henri D’Anglebert. These composers comprise the first half of the program, with Purcell’s Suite in G minor, Z. 661; three pieces in G minor by Pasquini; and D’Anglebert’s Transcriptions de Lully. MORE
