Carmel Bach Festival
July 18 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Book tickets early. Our 2017 and 2018 concerts sold out.
This year we’ll be joined by renowned Swedish virtuoso Olov Johansson, foremost exponent of the traditional Swedish instrument called the nyckelharpa. And by Johanna Novom, and Adriane Post, violin; Sarah Darling, viola; Paul Dwyer, cello; Jordan Frazier, bass; and Dongsok Shin, harpsichord.
This unique program will include traditional and contemporary Scandinavian folk music and songs, including arrangements of traditional Swedish dance tunes called the “polska,” and contemporary compositions from the Swedish supergroup Väsen. The Baroque side of Scandinavian music will be represented by a performance of Johan Helmich Roman’s Violin Concerto in D minor. Roman is known as the “Handel of Swedish Music.” The concert will also feature “Bach dances the Polska,” a blending of Baroque and Swedish dance tunes.
