Les Bostonades welcomes its Artistic Advisor, harpsichordist and conductor Hank Knox, faculty at McGill University in Montreal, to join the ensemble’s season finale. The program includes J.S. Bach’s Concerto in C minor for Two Harpsichords, BWV 1060, and Overture for Violin and Strings in A minor, BWV 1067a — the presumed original version of the famous Overture in B Minor (BWV 1067) scored for flute and strings — reconstructed by Werner Breig. Les Bostonades will also play two rarely performed works, Orchestral Suites No. 3 in E minor and No. 4 in D major, by Johann Bernhard Bach (1676–1749), Johann Sebastian’s second cousin, whose musical style has been compared to that of Telemann.
