Concert: Son of a Bach – Robert Macfarlane & Jacqueline Ogeil

Robert Macfarlane, tenor

Jacqueline Ogeil, Cristofori piano

 

The Bach family’s rich musical heritage began generations before Johann Sebastian took his place among Western music’s most revered composers.

The son of a distinguished court musician, Bach himself fathered 20 children, four of whom are now considered significant composers in their own right.

This program will explore the songs and keyboard music of W.F, C.P.E, J.C.F and J.C Bach – musical luminaries of one of history’s great musical minds.

Robert Macfarlane is an internationally recognised interpreter of Bach, particularly the Evangelist roles in The St. Matthew and St. John Passions. He is praised for his ‘blissful, clarion top’ and ‘remarkable capacity for mastering works that would daunt most singers’. He has performed as a soloist with, among others, the Melbourne and Adelaide Symphony Orchestras, the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, the Auckland Philharmonia and the Gewandhaus Orchestra (Leipzig), is an active performer on the Opera stage, and was a pupil of the great German tenor Peter Schreier.
