Songs for Bach in the Absence of Words

Please note that all of the composers in this program were influenced by Bach, and some of the pieces are titled identically to movements from Bach works (“Prelude”, “Fugue”, “Chaconne”), so the “common thread” in the program has Bach as a reference point, but also as an “exit” and “departure”. Bach himself is not presented in the program with a work, but his presence / essence/ spirit kind of looms above the program, without restricting the reflections other composers exhibit.

The pieces by Badinski, Soukhovetski, Stephen Brown, Carsten Bo Eriksen were written specifically Elmira Darvarova. The program has great variety of the composers represented, with a Canadian (Stephen Brown), an American (Norman Zocher), and a Latin-American (Piazzolla), as well as several European composers, and a female composer. And, there is also the World Premiere of the Chaconne by Carsten Bo Eriksen.
