GRAMMY-nominated early music organization Ars Lyrica Houston presents a quintessentially Baroque program called Fugal Games on Saturday, January 13th at 4pm in Duncan Recital Hall at Rice University. Five expert early music instrumentalists join for the artful and scholarly program, which features unique orchestrations of J.S. Bach’s enigmatic works and tuneful pieces by G.P. Telemann.

Artistic personnel:
Colin St-Martin, traverso & recorder
Elizabeth Blumenstock, violin & viola
Stephen Redfield, violin
Sydney ZumMallen, cello
Matthew Dirst, harpsichord & artistic director

The concert celebrates the release of artistic director Matthew Dirst’s latest book release on Bach’s Art of Fugue and Musical Offering with significant excerpts from both pieces. The book offers a comprehensive study of the two masterworks, and is attended for readers of all backgrounds, with engaging and accessible commentary by Dirst. Concertgoers are welcome to join for a book talk and audience Q&A with Dirst in the hall immediately following the performance.
