The Sanctuary Series Presents “A Newman Holiday”


Sunday, December 19, 2021
4:00 pm - 5:30 pm


Acclaimed keyboardists, Anthony Newman and Mary Jane Newman, present two of the great Preludes and Fugues of J.S. Bach arranged for two pianos made by Franz Xaver Gleichauf (1801-1856) and thought to have been created for Felix and Fanny Mendelssohn  and two Fantasias of WA Mozart originally composed for mechanical organ housed in a clock and adapted from the earliest arrangements for piano duet published a few years after Mozart’s death.

In keeping with the season Mr. Newman will perform two Noel’s by Louis-Claude d’Aquin and Bach’s Toccata, Adagio and Fugue in C major on the pipe organ an instrument for which he is internationally renowned.

Labeled the “High Priest of Bach” by Wynton Marsalis, Anthony Newman is considered by many to be America’s leading Bach specialist. His wife, Sanctuary Series Artistic Director, Mary Jane Newman, herself an acclaimed pianist and organist, made her New York debut in 1986 in Lincoln Center’s “Great Performers” series at Alice Tully Hall. Since then, she has appeared as soloist and conductor with orchestras, chamber ensembles and vocal groups throughout Europe, the U.S. and Israel.
