Program Details: 

Benefit Soirées are important fund raisers for Capriccio, a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit. They make it possible for Capriccio to continue its mission of presenting intimate, world-class harpsichord concerts.  A donation of $200 secures one seat at this very special Soirée, with 75% of that amount being tax deductible.  These Soirées are very intimate and elegant events - seating is limited to just 15; Programs are specialized; and, the Concert is followed by a complimentary multi-course dinner, in this case a fine Italian meal served with exceptional Italian wines donated by the International Wine Review.  For this Benefit Soirée, Alberto performs a glorious program of works by Late German Baroque master, Johann Sebastian Bach - works that showcase Bach's unparalleled mastery of the densely textured, formal, grand style of the Late Baroque style and also his genius for innovation and flair.
