In The Mode: March 9, 2014
We don’t usually hear music by Bach on In the Mode, he is just a little bit too young, but next time we will, because the recording featured is called Bach and Before. Each of the composers featured were proponents of the stylus fantasticus, a term which had its roots initially in the improvisational and virtuosic style of organ toccatas and fantasias. We’ll hear Chatham Baroque perform music by Bach, Bertali, Schmelzer and Buxtehude.
