Online ticket sales have closed. Limited tickets will be available for purchase beginning at 5:15pm at the Fifth Avenue Box Office.

At an earlier-than-usual start time, NYBI joins Benjamin Sheen in a program of chamber music celebrating the Martha J. Dodge Continuo Organ and a new harpsichord recently purchased from Willard Martin. Vivaldi’s evergreen depiction of Spring sets the scene for two concerti by Handel and Bach, both of which weave tapestries of musical counterpoint for all the hands of the orchestra. An intimate early evening performance looking towards Memorial Day and the New York summer.

‘La Primavera’ from The Four Seasons – Vivaldi
Organ Concerto in B flat, Op.4 no.6 – Handel
Adagio for organ and strings – Albinoni
Brandenburg Concerto no.5, BWV 1050 – J.S. Bach
