Pianist-composer Sam Post (commissioned last year by our very own San Francisco Symphony, http://www.sfsymphony.org/Buy-Tickets/2016-2017/Chamber-Feb-19.aspx) returns to the Bay Area with a program pairing highlights from his new ragtime recording with Preludes and Fugues by Bach.

Sam is no stranger to Bach: he performed the entire Well-Tempered Clavier Book 1 as a high-schooler and has also recorded the Goldberg Variations (see this review from the Washington Post):

Not surprisingly his own compositions are heavily influenced by Bach's, and he'll be telling us how his pieces, even in a genre as far-flung as ragtime, bear the indelible mark of the master.
