The Italian Influence: Frescobaldi and Friends

Sunday, Mar. 11, 2018, 7:30–11 p.m.
Adams Theatre Stage

2018 Chico Bach Festival

Chico State alumnus Jeffrey Cooper will perform an organ program tracing the work and influence of Italy’s greatest organist, Girolamo Frescobaldi, as it spread across Europe through the seventeenth century—finally to become a key ingredient in the North German tradition that gave rise to J.S. Bach’s organ music. Other composers represented include Buxtehude, Schildt, Sweelinck, and de Grigny.
