Bach Among Friends

by Rosa Lamoreaux

Bach Among Friends offers a selection of intimate duets and arias as chamber music, in a setting which might have been heard in Bach’s time played and enjoyed among friends at home. As performing colleagues, we enjoy the thrill of presenting Bach’s major works in large venues for large audiences, but the special delights of Bach’s chamber music in smaller spaces, house concerts and chamber halls offers friendly and direct communication. The harpsichord was the available keyboard in the small private settings of Bach’s time. Its unique personality is allowed to shine through as solo and supporting member on this recording. The theme of our selections focuses on the heart and soul, joy and longing. Adoring the music of J.S. Bach unites us, and performing his challenging music continues to be one of our most fulfilling musical experiences.

He has appeared with most major American symphony orchestras including those of New York, Chicago, Washington, Boston, Baltimore, San Francisco, and Los Angeles and has created world premiere performances and recordings of works by composers such as Leonard Bernstein, John Harbison, John Musto, Jon Deak, Libby Larson, David Del Tredici, Lori Laitman, Steven Paulus, Scott Wheeler, and David Liptak.

With Four Nations and funding from Chamber Music America, Appel has designed and run residencies in communities around the country with students from kindergarten through college, most recently in St. Cloud, MN. A native of New York City, Appel discovered the harpsichord at 14 and began lessons with Tim Read and Igor Kipnis.

Loretta enjoys teaching and has given masterclasses, lectures, and performance-practice demonstrations at colleges and conservatories throughout the country.
Debra Nagy, oboe, oboe da caccia, oboe d’amore, has been deemed “a baroque oboist of uncommon elegance” by the Cleveland Plain Dealer. She performs as principal oboe with the American Bach Soloists, Apollo’s Fire, Opera Lafayette, Boston’s Handel & Haydn Society, and with many other groups. A dedicated chamber musician, Debra is the founder of Les Délices (whose debut recording was named “one of the top ten early music discoveries of 2009) and performs late-medieval music as a favorite guest with Boston’s acclaimed Blue Heron ensemble and the Newberry Consort.
