Celebrate spring with an intimate evening of Bach

BRISTOL — The WalkOver concert room in Bristol welcomes two extraordinary musicians to an intimate concert on Saturday, March 23, at 8 p.m. Pianist Annemieke McLane and cellist Emily Taubl will perform a collection of J.S. Bach gems.
Both musicians thrive in deeply-felt and nuanced performances. These works, carefully selected by the musicians, will be performed just two days after the composer’s spring equinox birthday, and will feature a solo cello suite, a solo piano Toccata, and the collaboration of these two seasoned chamber musicians on the Gamba Sonatas, (the viola da gamba was the ancestor of the modern-day cello.)
This concert is sure to nourish the spirit and welcome spring. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 day of show. Reservations and information at 453-3188 x 2 or at [email protected].
Annemieke McLane
Born in the Netherlands, McLane studied classical piano and received degrees in Music Pedagogy and a Masters in Performance from the Conservatory in Zwolle, where she studied with Prof. Rudy de Heus and won the Netherlands National Young Music Talent for piano-accompaniment, praised for her touch and coloring.
Since her studies, she has been coached by Tan Crone, who had studied with Nadia Boulanger and Rudolph Serkin. She was accompanist for vocalists and instrumentalists at conservatories in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Arnhem, and Zwolle. McLane has performed in the Netherlands, France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the USA. She has played live on VPR and was filmed by TV France during a concert she gave in Miami.
In 2004, McLane made her way to Vermont. She was staff accompanist at the Boston Conservatory (2004-2006) and from 2010-2012, she was pianist for the Vermont Youth Orchestra choruses. She teaches piano at Saint Michael’s College, has accompanied the Saint Michael’s College chorale for 11 years and is now pianist for the Handel Society of Dartmouth College. Since moving to the Upper Valley, she has also played for the Theater Department at Dartmouth College and is Music Director (including choruses) for the United Church of Strafford and teaches at her home studio.
She collaborates with vocalists and instrumentalists in concerts and recitals and forms a duo with her husband accordionist Jeremiah McLane. As a duo, they perform nationally and internationally.
Emily Taubl
Taubl has attracted attention for her expressive cello playing and uncommon poise. She has been featured in The New York Times as a musician of great promise. Having performed throughout the country, she has appeared as a concerto soloist with the Hartford Symphony, Granite State Symphony, Boston Virtuosi, New England String Ensemble, Nashua Chamber Orchestra, and the Juilliard Pre-College Symphony.
In addition, she has been recognized as the top prizewinner in the Van Rooy Competition and the concerto competitions of the Boston Virtuosi, New England String Ensemble, and Juilliard pre-college division. She has been featured as a performer at the Piatigorsky International Cello Festival in Los Angeles, as well as a soloist for The Colors of Claude Debussy: A 150th Birthday Celebration on Boston’s WGBH.
Having studied at the Juilliard School, Yale School of Music and the New England Conservatory, her major teachers include Paul Katz, Aldo Parisot, and Ardyth Alton. In the past, she has worked closely with Itzhak Perlman, Jesse Levine, Claude Frank, Nancy Allen, Roger Tapping, and the Tokyo String Quartet.
