Krista Tippett Live: Discovering the Cosmology of Bach

WQXR presents a taping of On Being

Tuesday November 4 2014 • 7:00pm - 8:30pm

On Being host Krista Tippett


In a live taping of On Being, national public radio’s program about the big questions at the center of human life, Chazelle will speak with host Krista Tippett about Bach’s human and aesthetic virtues, and how he inspires our own.

The evening will include live performances of Bach’s monumental Chaconne for solo violin performed by Tim Fain, hailed for his “sheer youthful exuberance and dazzling technical skill” (Washington Post), and an excerpt of the Partita No. 2 in C minor for solo piano performed by Anna Polonsky, a “musician of exceptional refinement” (The New York Times).


Watch a live video webcast at 7pm:
