#DECLASSIFIED“In Bach’s Hand: Notes and Accounts”Anne McLean and Jan Lauridsen, Music Division
Bach-lovers can enjoy a closeup look at several treasures from the Music Division’s vaults in this display and discussion. On view will be holograph manuscripts of two of the composer’s cantatas: Es ist das Heil uns kommen her, BWV 9, which shows a rare note from the composer to himself, and Meine Seel’ erhebt den Herren, BWV 10. Among other items of interest to be seen is a page of four handwritten receipts documenting payments to Bach for musical services rendered.
Additional Ticketing InformationSeating is first-come, first-served for patrons with a reservation. For best seating options, patrons are encouraged to arrive fifteen minutes before the scheduled start of the event. At five minutes before the start of the event, all empty seats will be available on a first-come, first served basis to all patrons. Because of the limited space in the venue, we encourage patrons who are unable to obtain a reservation to add their name to the waitlist; it is possible that events may be repeated if there is sufficiently high interest.
