Experience the dramatic side of Bach

Bach’s darkly dramatic side shines in this concert – featuring his most famous work, his Toccata and Fugue, here performed by solo violin for a new, fascinating take on this favorite.  The Passacaglia, arranged for Strings, complements this perfectly – along with a lovely, expressive and unabashedly warm Octet by Mendelssohn – a composer who championed Bach in his lifetime. Experience them all in four unique, intimate venues across Houston.
