Harpsichordist Takae Ohnishi teams up with violist Brian Che-Yen Chen in a performance of J.S.Bach’s Complete Sonatas for Viola da Gamba and Harpsichord, BWV 1027-1029.

 Acclaimed harpsichordist and UCSD lecturer Takae Ohnishi has performed extensively as a soloist, chamber musician and continuo player. The Gramophone magazine praises her recording of the Goldberg Variations that “Ohnishi’s brilliant artistry immerses the listener in the creative and emotional narratives Bach unfolds with incomparable mastery.”
 Currently teaching at USC Thornton School of Music, violist Brian Che-Yen Chen is a founding member of the Formosa String Quartet and Camera Lucida. The Strad magazine describes him as a musician whose “tonal distinction and essential musicality produced an auspicious impression.”
 The concert is in UCSD’s Conrad Prebys Concert Hall, featuring its beautiful Marc Ducornet French Flemish harpsichord.
