Offsite Concert - Northwest BachFest Presents: Honoring and Celebrating Diversity, Anniversaries, and Virtuosity
Location: Barrister Winery - 1213 W. Railroad Ave. Spokane, WA
BachFest’s opening concert in December represents a time in the 19th and early 20th century when it became popular to hear musical masterpieces with piano accompaniment. Complete orchestras were not available in smaller communities, but pianos in homes were becoming increasingly present, and parlor concerts became popular. The December concerts bring musical masterpieces, including Johannes Brahms’s final piece for orchestra, to the intimacy of Barrister Winery. The second concert features rare musical gems, familiar and unfamiliar, presented by exciting, virtuosic soloists.
