Inspired by Bach’s Two-Part Inventions, violinist Tessa Lark, a 2016 Avery Fisher Career Grant recipient, and intrepid bassist Michael Thurber have created their own set of duos, drawing upon their roots in classical music, Appalachian fiddling, jazz, and R&B. This lively, hourlong concert showcases Lark and Thurber’s original compositions alongside the inventive mastery of Bach.

“Remarkable rendition and astonishing technical skill.”
– Lexington Herald Leader on Tessa Lark
