Blair pianists perform The Bach Partitas, Nov. 2

Sunday, November 2
7 p.m., Steve & Judy Turner Recital Hall

Six outstanding Blair piano students perform J.S. Bach’s six partitas, BWV 825-830. Originally composed for harpsichord and commonly referred to as the “German Suites,” they were the last set of harpsichord suites that Bach composed, and the most technically demanding. In order, they are performed here by freshman Zack Kleiman, ninth-grader Kazuki Takizawa, sophomore David Rodgers, sophomore William Woodard, sophomore June Kim and junior Thomas Ridgway. Concert organizer Craig Nies says, “The future looks bright for piano at Blair!”
