Livestream: Watch Violinist Tessa Lark and Michael Thurber Perform Bach and More

February 5, 2021, 11:28 PM · Watch below: Violinist Tessa Lark and bassist Michael Thurber - a romantic as well as musical duo - played a live concert on Saturday - and the performance will remain available for a week (through Feb. 13):

Lark and Thurber started playing together as a duo by transcribing Bach's Two-Part Inventions. Lark, a laureate of the International Violin Competition of Indianapolis who tours as a classical soloist, is also known for her mad bluegrass chops. Their performance will feature inventions by Bach, as well as their own.

This concert is part of the Atterbury House Sessions concert series, curated by Lara St John and celebrating the 150th anniversary of New York’s iconic Atterbury House.

The series began on Jan. 23 with performance by Sybarite5 and will continued for nine more Saturdays, all at 2 p.m. PT (5 p.m. ET) with upcoming guests including the Ulysses Quartet (Feb. 20); bassist Xavier Foley (Feb. 27); PUBLIQuartet (March 13); The Westerlies (April 3); Imani Winds (April 17); Baroque violinist Aisslinn Nosky and friends (April 24); the Brentano Quartet (May 8); violinist Augustin Hadelich (May 15); and Lara herself (June 5).

February 7, 2021 at 03:20 PM · This was a wonderful concert! (And, Jean, I'm with you! Tessa just flies across the strings. It's so evident that she was raised in that style of fiddle playing.)

February 8, 2021 at 11:30 PM · Any double bassist that plays bass exclusively pizzacato, is inferior to a bassist using the bow.
