Now that it's definitely the fifth month of the year, we MAY as well LEAF the winter frost and SPRING into Teddy's groupmuse!

This is the first of two groupmuses in which we will explore music inspired by our leafy friends.

First, we enter and stay for a while in the sonic environment curated by Johann Sebastian Bach, as he brings our ears BACH to a time when time was experienced in a cyclical way when farmers and townsfolk kept track of their days with liturgical calendars and the seasons. Then, in the second half, we'll explore when music enters the digital world.

J.S. Bach (1685-1750)
....Suite No. 2 in D minor, BWV 1008
I. Prelude
II. Allemande
III. Courante
IV. Sarabande
V. Minuet I & II
[20 min]

Kaija Saariaho (1952-)
....Petals for solo cello (and possibly electronics) (1988)
