Ars Lyrica presents A Bach Keyboard Extravaganza
Ars Lyrica Houston’s harpsichordist and conductor Matthew Dirst will collaborate with The Baroque Music Festival, Corona del Mar, and The San Francisco Early Music Society to offer an immersive concert experience to an international audience through an online program.
Specially filmed for this presentation, the performances and commentary were captured in May 2021 at Rienzi, the MFAH House Museum for European Decorative Arts, and at St. Philip Presbyterian Church, Houston where Dirst serves as organist.
A Bach Keyboard Extravaganza explores and celebrates the music of J.S. Bach for harpsichord and organ, alongside that of Bach’s key contemporaries. The program premieres on YouTube on June 24 at 7 pm.
