Chaconne from Partita No. 2 in D Minor, BWV 1004, for solo violin arranged for guitar by Andrés Segovia
Join conductor and educator Oliver Prezant and guitarist Roberto Capocchi for an interactive exploration and performance of J.S. Bach’s monumental Chaconne in D minor, one of the greatest pieces ever written for a solo instrument. The program takes place on Saturday, Nov. 19, from 2-4 p.m. at Strata Gallery, 418 Cerrillos Rd. in the Design Center.
During the first part of the program, Roberto will play excerpts from the piece, and Oliver will lead us in getting to know the details and the larger sweep of the music: its contours and its character, its searching harmonies, its powerful patterns, and emotional climaxes. Roberto will demonstrate a variety of approaches to shaping a single phrase musically and emotionally and will share some of the many nuances that make for an artistic performance. After intermission, we’ll hear the piece performed in its entirety.
