7 p.m. Akademie — Bach Week Co-Director David Arrivée will present an Akademie lecture titled “Bach’s ‘Musical Offering.’” May 7, 1747, is the most documented date in J.S. Bach’s musical life.
7:45 p.m. Cal Poly’s own Suzanne Duffy on flute; Emily Lanzone, violin; Laura Gaynon, cello; and Paul Woodring, harpsichord; will perform the sonata from Bach’s “Musical Offering,” a collection of works dedicated to Frederick the Great. This sonata features not only the flute — the monarch’s instrument — but also the theme that Frederick the Great gave to Bach as a challenge during his visit. That theme is interwoven with the inexhaustible invention that distinguishes Bach’s music.
