Concert Reminders

Don't miss a concert!

Samson at Home

Bach left two volumes of preludes and fugues “through all tones and semitones” – that is in all of the keys, both major and minor.  The title, Das wohltemperirte Clavier, raises two important questions:  how did Bach imagine an instrument would be tuned so as to play in all of the keys, and at exactly which keyboard instrument did Bach expect the pieces to be played. 

First the BIG NEWS: Bennington Baroque now has 501(c)3 nonprofit status, which means your donations are fully tax-deductible. We could use help in any amount in support of our fall concerts and two new ventures.
