Marin Baroque presents Agave Baroque
“Bach/All in the Family” Agave Baroque (Aaron Westman, Natalie Carducci, and Anna Washburn, violin & viola; William Skeen, violoncello; and Henry Lebedinsky, harpsichord) performs an all Bach-family program. The program includes a wild sonata from uncle Johann Michael Bach (credited as “Signor Pagh”), selections from Johann Sebastian’s “The Musical Offering” and “The Art of the Fugue,” the famous G minor violin and continuo sonata, a “passionate” trio sonata conversation between “Sanguineus and Melancholicus” by Sebastian’s famous son Carl Philipp Emanuel, and the gorgeous Orchestral Suite no. 3 in E minor by an immensely talented second cousin, Johann Bernhard.
