About this Event

Maria Canyigueral presents a programme dedicated to Johann Sebastian Bach and some of the tributes to his compositions which can be found through the history of western music.

A selection of preludes and fugues by the baroque master will be sounding alternated alongside some Shostakovich’s preludes and fugues.

The programme will be completed with Chaconne by Sofia Gubaidulina (1931) written in 1962, the same year as pianist Gonzalo Soriano was premiering Sonatine pour Yvette by the catalan composer Xavier Montsalvatge (1912-2002), one of the most brilliant piano pieces in the contemporary repertory with clear post-impressionistic influences.

1962 was also the year when Montsalvatge composed Morphological desintegration of the Bach Chaconne, a magnificent orchestral work.

The concert will conclude with the 4th Ballade by F. Chopin, which has clear counterpoint influences.

Prelude and fugue I in C Major BWV 846, J.S.BACH

Prelude and fugue Op.87 n.4 in E minor, D. SHOSTAKOVICH
