Ricercar Consort: A Concert for Anna Magdalena

A woman who inspired great music

Join the San Diego Early Music Society, soprano Hanna Bayodi-Hirt and the eight amazing musicians of Ricercar Consort led by Philippe Pierlot to celebrate a woman who inspired great music: Anna Magdalena Bach, second wife of Johann Sebastian. This concert presents a varied evening of his music as it might have been performed in their home, for the Bachs gave house concerts to which friends and other family were invited and in which they often participated. Anna Magdalena was a fine soprano who performed her husband’s work, and this program includes the joyous “Wedding” Cantata which she probably sang, alongside the reconstructed concerto for Oboe d’Amore BWV1055 and the Trio Sonata from “The Musical Offering.”
