Attend all six programs during Bach Dancing & Dynamite Society’s chamber music festival, which include insightful commentary and delightful surprises. Led by artistic directors Stephanie Jutt (flute) and Jeffrey Sykes (piano), you’ll hear diverse repertoire played by an ensemble of distinguished musicians from Wisconsin and around the country. A full list of the shows can be found HERE.
The elegance, charm, and finesse of French cellist Jean-Michel Fonteneau is displayed in “Fonteneau of Youth.” It includes music written by great composers in their youth. Fonteneau will be joined by four others including an artist of the highest distinction, violinist Axel Strauss, and Russian virtuoso accordion player Stas Venglevski. Venglevski performs on the bayan, a Russian-style accordion noted for its deep bass sound and range and purity of tone.
