Two performances: Monday, February 24 and Tuesday, February 25
New program:
J.S. Bach: Toccata and Fugue in D Minor, BWV 565;
J.S. Bach: Sonata in E-flat Major for Flute/Clavier, BWV 1031
Manuel de Falla: Siete Canciones
Camille Saint-Saëns: Fantaisie
John Dowland: Flow, my tears
C.P.E. Bach: G Minor Sonata, H 542.5
J.S. Bach: Allemande and Double from B Minor Partita
Sebastian Currier: Night Time Suite

Friends and musical collaborators Bridget Kibbey and Alexi Kenney join forces for an intimate and virtuosic collaboration. From adaptations of the music of John Dowland and J. S. Bach, to masterworks by Camille Saint-Saëns and Sebastian Currier, their performance traverses three generations of musical counterpoint coupled with the rich harmonies of Romantic-era colorists.

“[Bridget Kibbey] makes it seem as though her instrument had been waiting all its life to explode with the gorgeous colors and energetic figures she was getting from it.” — The New York Times

“A rising star, surely, is Alexi Kenney, an acutely musical and technically unassailable young American violinist…a spellbinding, thoroughly honest performance.” — The New York Times
