Two dynasties reign within the Baroque keyboard world: the Bachs and the Couperins. Each family boasts generations of organists and courtly keyboardists, and their compositions create the bulk of Baroque keyboard repertoire explored in classrooms and concert halls today. Harpsichordists Elliot Figg and Caitlyn Koester honor these dynasties with a selection of music for two keyboards and four hands.

Harpsichordists Elliot Figg and Caitlyn Koester met in New York City in 2019. Sharing a love of opera scores, double-continuo, and modern arrangements of historical music, they strive to show audiences the sonic possibilities of their instrument. After much time spent workshopping their individual projects together, they make their duo debut in this concert.
