PORT TOWNSEND — The final 2022 Salish Sea Early Music Festival will feature two profound 18th century orchestral works at 2 p.m. Sunday, said Jeffrey Cohan, artistic director.
Bach’s Fifth Brandenburg concerto and his Triple Concerto — both for harpsichord, flute and violin — will be performed by seven period instrument specialists from Canada, Montana and Washington state at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, 1020 Jefferson St., in Port Townsend.
A suggested donation of $15, $20 or $25 (a free will offering) will be requested, and those 18 and younger will be admitted free.
Masks and vaccination are required.
Jonathan Oddie, newly named professor of harpsichord at the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University in Bloomington, Ind., returns to perform two of Johann Sebastian Bach’s most moving and difficult works for harpsichord and orchestra with soloists baroque violinist Cari Krause and Cohan, a baroque flutist, Cohan said.
They will perform along with a baroque string orchestra comprised of Elizabeth Phelps and Courtney Kuroda, violins; Lindsey Strand-Polyak, viola; and cellist Martin Bonham from Victoria.
Carrie Krause will perform Antonio Vivaldi’s Violin Concerto “La Stravaganza” No 3 in G and Cohan will perform Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach’s Flute Concerto in D Major alongside the two concerti by Bach.
