Bach in Love

Radio Show Inside Music: Bach in Love with George Marriner Maull

The Largo of the Concerto for Two Violins is a powerful profession of love. We know the two great loves of Johann Sebastian Bach.  His wife Maria Barbara and he were married in 1707, but she sadly died thirteen years later.  He married Anna Magdalena the next year in 1721.  Does the Largo, dating from 1731,express Bach’s feelings for Maria or Anna or perhaps both?  No matter, Maestro Maull finds this movement worthy of musical exploration and discovery, and will share his thoughts.

INSIDE MUSIC with George Marriner Maull on WWFM The Classical Network is made possible by Glenmede Trust Company, an independent investment and wealth management firm, with 8 locations including offices in Princeton, Morristown and Philadelphia. 

Additional sponsorship of Inside Music has been provided by Alfonso and Diana Finocchiaro.
