Description: When we think of J.S. Bach, we imagine a sui generis creative force. However, Bach was hugely influenced by new music coming out of Italy. The concerto, which originated in Italy as a form of musical argument, became one of Bach's "go-to" musical genres, and the work of pan-national composers such as the Munich-based Evaristo Felice dall'Abaco and Amsterdam-based Pietro Antonio Locatelli would have had resonance throughout Bach's world. In this rare New York performance, Concerto Koln, celebrates the international interplay in Bach's lifetime. $1 tickets for kids are available for this concert. Children must be accompanied by an adult purchasing a full-price ticket (maximum three children's tickets per paying adult). Tickets to this event include Museum admission.
