Philippe Pierlot, viola da gamba
& Lorenzo Ghielmi, harpsichord

Master and Student
Emmanuel Church

Two of the world’s finest soloists—Philippe Pierlot, in a back-by- popular-demand appearance, and Lorenzo Ghielmi in his BEMF début—come together on the BEMF concert stage for a captivating recital exploring the fascinating relationship between teacher and apprentice. Their program traces the pedagogical lineage of some of the Baroque’s greatest proponents of the viola da gamba and keyboard, including Hotman, Sainte- Colombe, Marais, Böhm, J. S. Bach, and Abel. A special prologue entitled Suzanne un jour (“Suzanne and the old men”), by the rarely performed Spanish Baroque composer Bartolomé de Selma y Salaverde, will introduce this midafternoon concert.


Bartolomeo Selma y Salaverde: Susanna passeggiata
Georg Böhm: Praeludium, Fugue, and Postludium in G minor
Nicolas Hotman : Ballet
Jean de Sainte-Colombe: Chaconne
Marin Marais: Couplets de folies
Johann Sebastian Bach: Aria variata alla maniera italiana, BWV 989
Carl Friedrich Abel: Arpeggio
Bach: Sonata in D major, BWV 1028

Pierlot and Ghielmi

"The density of thought and refined musicality make Pierlot more than a performer: a true creator."
