Michael Plagerman plays Bach, Krebs and Buxtehude at Midday

Console of the Anabel Taylor Organ

Midday Music for Organ on Wednesday, October 18th, 2017 presents Michael Plagerman, our newest member of the doctoral program in performance practice. For his debut recital at Cornell, Michael will play music by J. S. Bach (in an arrangement of a concerto by his young patron the music-obsessed, Vivaldi-loving Prince Johann Ernst of Saxe-Weimar), Bach’s most faithful student and admirer Johann Ludwig Krebs, and Dieterich Buxtehude, the North German master from whom Bach learned ‘a thing or two about his art.’ A musical menu of the charming, energetic, thoughtful, learned, moving and sublime, played with skill and finesse, to offer a mid-week, mid-semester musical break for us all.

Free, and open to the public.
