Mozart to Soothe the Soul, Plus Beethoven & Bridge in Free Bach’s Lunch Programs at Concord Community Music School – January 9 & 16, 2020
CONCORD, NH—Soothe your soul and gladden your heart with the first two free Bach’s Lunch programs of the new year: “Soothe the Soul: Mozart in B♭ Major” and “Music of Mozart, Beethoven, and Bridge,” January 9 and 16, respectively, at Concord Community Music School.
Bach’s Lunch Lecture - Soothe the Soul: Mozart in B♭ Major
Speaker: Peggy Senter
Thursday, January 9, 12:10 to 12:50pm
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was a renowned performing pianist in Salzburg and Vienna, and also an excellent violist. In her January 9 Bach's Lunch Lecture, “Soothe the Soul: Mozart in B♭ Major,” pianist and Concord Community Music School president Peggy Senter explores similarities in beautiful works for piano and strings in B♭ Major by Mozart, including a violin & piano sonata, a piano trio, and his final piano concerto. We’ll also ponder the history and some clues as to why 18th century composers might have chosen particular keys for a particular mood.
Bach’s Lunch Concert - Music of Mozart, Beethoven, and Bridge
Artists: Matt Dickey, violin & viola; Kate Jensik, cello; and Kathryn Southworth, piano
Thursday, January 16, 12:10 to 12:50pm
Concord Community Music School’s Bach’s Lunch Concert on January 16, “Music of Mozart, Beethoven, and Bridge,” will feature faculty member Matt Dickey on violin and viola. Musical selections will highlight both violin and viola in an effort to “bridge the gap” between the two instruments. Faculty member Kathryn Southworth joins Dickey on piano for works by Frank Bridge and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. In celebration of Ludwig van Beethoven’s 250th birthday, Dickey will be joined by faculty member Kate Jensik on cello for the lively “Eyeglass Duo.”
Bach’s Lunch programs are free and open to the public, and take place from 12:10pm to 12:50pm on the first and second Thursdays of each month, November through May, in the Music School’s Recital Hall, 23 Wall Street, downtown Concord.
