Review: Bach Family Affair

Boston Globe Logo


A great review from Thomasine Berg of the Boston Globe, captures the essence of Aston Magna’s opening weekend: “A Bach Family Affair.” Writes Berg of Artistic Director Daniel Stepner’s interpretation of Bach’s Musical Offering: “This was organic, bare-knuckle playing, with pulsing tempos and intonation that has little in common with today’s digitally mastered uniformity. The audience responded with chuckles at impish movement endings, and gasps at virtuosic flourishes.”
