    Steven Isserlis & Richard Egarr

    Fri., April 27, 8 p.m.

    For the eighth year, Middlebury College presents the Middlebury Bach Festival, a series of performances celebrating the life and work of the German composer. This year’s classical commemoration kicks off with a performance by internationally acclaimed cellist Steven Isserlis and harpsichordist Richard Egarr. Each a lauded musician in his own right, the players earned praise as a duo for their 2015 release Bach, Handel, Scarlatti: Gamba Sonatas. “Egarr on harpsichord matches Isserlis’ eloquence and rambunctious energy all the way,” writes the Guardian. The instrumentalists band together to perform sonatas by Luigi Boccherini, Domenico Scarlatti, George Frideric Handel and, of course, Johann Sebastian Bach. at Robison Hall, Mahaney Center for the Arts, Middlebury College in Middlebury.

    In a review of Motel Bouquet, Caitlin Canty’s 2018 album, American Songwriter writes, “Canty has a knack for crafting detailed scenarios ready-made for a mental movie in four minutes or less.” Her third release’s cover art — a photograph taken from inside a moving car — reflects the album’s subtle, rootsy numbers, written on the road and in motels as Canty left her home in New York City for a new life in Nashville, Tenn. Guitar in hand, the award-winning songwriter lends her understated voice to lyrics about love, vice and sorrow in a concert for listeners of all ages. at West Rutland Town Hall Theater in West Rutland.
