CUUC Music: Sun Nov 1

November’s Theme of Hospitality is illustrated by music written with a domestic purpose in mind. Johanna Sebastian Bach wrote his monumental “Goldberg Variations” to entertain the Russian ambassador to the Saxony court during his many bouts of insomnia. Johann Gottlieb Goldberg was the ambassador’s private harpsichordist, who would have played these pieces to relieve the ambassador’s tedium. CUUC’s Choir is also hand with two contrasting selections, ranging from introspective intimacy to celebratory joy. Read on for programming details.
