STEINWAY ARTIST JACQUELYN HELIN IN RECITAL

Saturday, August 29, 2020 at 7 pm
Immaculate Heart of Mary Chapel, Santa Fe
Co-sponsored by Joyce and Whitney Smith and Charlie and Leah Wilkins

PROGRAM

Johann Sebastian Bach, The Well-Tempered Clavier (Book I)

Jacquelyn Helin will perform the first complete book of Johann Sebastian Bach’s famous work for keyboard. At this point in time, equal temperament was just beginning to come into use. The upside of equal temperament is that a work can be performed in any key and, in theory, sound reasonably well in tune. This is the system in use today in Western music, although many composers experiment with other tuning systems. Bach wrote The Well-Tempered Clavier in response to the very earliest experiments in equal temperament.

But the most important thing is that this series of Preludes and Fugues shows the depth and breadth of Bach’s imagination. Please plan to join NMPAS and Steinway Artist Jacquelyn Helin on Saturday evening, March 14, 2020 for a wonderful journey through the first half of Bach’s masterpiece!
