On Saturday, Oct 9th the Miami Bach Society will present the Baroque Ensemble Repast for the second of its annual season performances. This collaboration of three period-instrument virtuosi presents vivid renditions of music of the baroque era. It is comprised of Amelia Roosevelt, baroque violin, John-Mark Rosendaal, viola da gamba and baroque cello and Avi Stein, harpsichord. Founded in New York City during 2003, the group is acclaimed by the New York Times as “a graceful, energetic ensemble.” This will be their first South Florida appearance.
The concert entitled “Bach and Before” will put the great master in context by exploring the generation of German composers which preceded and influenced him: These include Dietrich Buxtehude, Johann Schenk and Philipp Heinrich Erlebach. The performance will be held at St. Philip’s Episcopal Church at 1142 Andalusia Avenue, on the corner of Columbus Boulevard and Coral Way in Coral Gables.
