Experience the mesmerizing beauty of J.S. Bach in an intimate setting on Saturday (Feb. 15), when violinist Vanessa Moss plays Bach’s entire Partita No. 2 for solo violina at the Spartan Art Project on the TwispWorks campus.
Moss is an accomplished performer who currently plays with the Yakima Symphony Orchestra.
The Partita includes a chaconne, a dance movement that Methow music teacher and conductor Matt Armbrust calls “quite possibly the most important piece written for solo violin.” With 64 variations that grow in complexity, Bach’s chaconne is considered one of the most challenging pieces in the solo violin repertoire.
Moss will be joined by Armbrust on violin and Pam Hunt on cello, in Bach’s Concerto in D Minor for two violins, a classic of the violin repertoire often dubbed the “Bach Double.”
The concert is at 7 p.m. in the Spartan Art Project, a vintage travel trailer at TwispWorks. Tickets are $20 (cash only). To reserve seats, text Armbrust at 997-1022.
