Music before 1800 – Diderot String Quartet

March 30 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Bach to the Future: The Legacy of the Fugue

There will be a reception in the lobby of the Kosciuszko Foundation featuring complimentary wine from Germany, the country featured in Diderot’s program.

Johann Sebastian Bach’s music had fallen into obscurity until Felix Mendelssohn’s visionary 1829 revival of the St. Matthew Passion. Mendelssohn continued to honor Bach by embracing the “antiquated” fugue in his own works. The vibrant Diderot String Quartet plays Bach’s Art of Fugue, Mendelssohn’s Fugue in E-flat Major, and his fugue-filled String Quartet No. 2, Op. 13.

“I caught afternoon performances, from Tuesday through Thursday, by the Diderot String Quartet, anchored by the cellist Paul Dwyer, who had led off the festival with a peripatetic survey of Bach’s cello suites.” —New York Times
