Bach & Beyond

The perennial appeal of Bach’s music has inspired many artists across genres to adapt and arrange his music. SalonEra’s Artists in Residence (including host Debra Nagy, keyboard maverick Eric Milnes, and viola da gambist Mélisande Corriveau) together with violinist Shelby Yamin, soprano Hannah De Priest, and special guest tenor Philippe Gagné pick up this trend as they turn violin sonatas into trios, trios into solos, imaginatively reconstruct new “Brandenburg” concertos, and even indulge in some Bach-inspired heavy metal.
