Bach Aria Soloists
February 26, 2010
Now in its tenth year the Bach Aria Soloists is truly a world class ensemble, which is largely unknown in the Kansas City area. Founder and Executive/Artistic Director Elizabeth Suh Lane has been solo violinist for Sir Neville Marriner, Sir Michael Tilson Thomas, Andre Previn, Nikolaus Harnoncourt, and Leonard Bernstein, among others. Her stature in the classical music world has enabled her to bring Christoph Wolff, preeminent authority on Johann Sebastian Bach, to K.C. and resulted in commissioning two works, which had their debut here. She is particularly adept at collaborations with
literary, theatre, and dance, most recently, "Baroque in Motion," with Owen/Cox Ballet Troupe. BAS' signature series, "Hauskonzert," combines exquisite performances, convivial conversation, and a delicious repast in magnificent residences, replicating what Bach, himself, did in his own home. These intimate concerts provide the rare opportunity not only to hear and see the musicians, but also to speak with them individually.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
the opportunity to work closely with the superlative Elizabeth Suh Lane, who is as gifted a person as she is professionally.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
tour the globe, garnering the recognition and rave reviews it so richly deserves. Bach Aria Soloists is incomparable; it has no peer anywhere in the world.
