Dongsok Shin, harpsichord

The collection of sonatas for violin and obbligato harpsichord represent some of Bach's most eloquent and ingenious contrapuntal writing, the most distinguishing element being the concertante treatment of both the right and left hand of the harpsichord, which, together with the violin part, forms a trio texture that is fully integrated and sublime.

Midtown Concerts sponsors lunchtime performances of music of the 18th century and earlier for anyone seeking a respite from the midtown hustle and bustle. Ensembles are chosen by a jury of early-music specialists from the metropolitan area.
