A fascinating and imaginative exploration of the wonders of Bach with five of the most dynamic and musical artists before the public today.
A thrilling collaboration!
We are delighted to offer you the chance to present together for the first time in a celebration of Bach, Bridget Kibbey, harp and the Dover Quartet. The "father" of all composers encouraged the performance of many of his works by a variety of instrumentalists, and Bridget and the Dovers have taken him up on the offer with a marvelously diverse program. It gives us a chance to hear some of Bach's greatest works in the hands of some of today's most brilliant and musical artists.
From the Toccata and Fugue in D Minor to the Aria and Three Variations from the Goldberg Variations; from Art of the Fugue to Brandenburg Concerto No. 3, Kibbey and the Dover Quartet will dazzle and captivate your audience.

About the Artists
A cherished soloist and chamber musician who has toured and recorded with Dawn Upshaw and Placido Domingo, Bridget Kibbey brings virtuosic brilliance and musical charisma to all she plays. As the New York Times wrote: “Kibbey made it seem as though her instrument had been waiting all its life to explode with the gorgeous colors and energetic figures she was getting from it.”
The phenomenal Dover Quartet catapulted to international stardom following a stunning sweep of the 2013 Banff Competition. Recently named the Cleveland Quartet Award winner, and awarded the coveted Avery Fisher Career Grant, the Dover has become one of the most in-demand ensembles in the world.
