While we can’t get together in person, enjoying music brings us closer together in a different way.
We hope you enjoy this little bonbon of J.S. Bach, the Gavotte en Rondeau from the E major Partita for Unaccompanied Violin. I just decided to record it on my ipad this morning, just a spontaneous idea to share what I have been doing lately. I get out my violin and I warm up with a bit of unaccompanied Bach. In fact, the violin accompanies itself with chords that imply the harmonic structure. The Rondeau form brings us back to the initial dance over and over, with wanderings in between.
Wishing you peace in this holiday season, and a New Year with new beginnings, connection and creativity, whether it be in the body, mind or spirit.
Yours in Music,
Joan Blackman, Artistic Director
