Summer Season: Jill Crossland

This Summer Season event presents Jill Crossland (piano) performing two melodic inspired Baroque works.

Domenico Scarlatti – Sonata in E Kp38

Johann Sebastian Bach – Partita No. 1 in B flat, BWV82

A recital of two melodically inspired Baroque works- Kp380 is pastorale-like, clearly showing the influence both Scarlatti’s native Italy and his adopted Portugal /Spain, one of 555 sonatas he wrote for Princess Maria Barbara.

This Partita is Bach’s very first published work, from 1726, advertised as the first of a subscription set of six. A statement of his mature prowess (Bach was in his 40s), not a stage in his evolution. Bach made the work as accessible, tuneful and winning as he could, to encourage its commercial sale, from a transparent prelude, through light-hearted minuets and the virtuosic concluding gigue.
