This past Monday, July 8, our third annual Texas Bach Festival season, Bach to the Future, concluded on a triumphant note in Georgetown with a the Artisan Quartet performing music of Bach and Beethoven, featuring the final Artisan performance of beloved violinist Richard Kilmer. This concert followed what can only be recognized as an impassioned and transformative performance of Bach’s St. John Passion at St. Martin’s in Austin on July 7, the TBF Camerata’s thrilling rendering of Corelli, Bach and Mozart on July 6 in Georgetown and the exciting opening concert of von Weber and Schubert’s “Shepherd on the Rock” and “The Trout” Quintet. What a season it has been, and my enthusiastic thanks and congratulations go out to ALL of our amazing performance personnel and donors!
As we speak, with the echoes of the past week’s ethereal music-making still present, we are looking forward with excitement and anticipation to our fourth season in 2020, Bach “Four” More. Featured will be Austin Symphony’s Maestro Peter Bay as guest conductor, all-Bach and all-Beethoven concerts, the Michael Haydn and Mozart Requiems, more beautiful chamber music centered around the Artisan Quartet and numerous outreach and educational events in Georgetown and Austin. We invite the support and assistance of all music lovers in Central Texas to partner with TBF to champion and advance this great and timeless music.
