So as you could imagine, a marathon needs lots of build up so of course, one of the first things to do was to get a performer’s permit from the MBTA to go into the stations and play without being persecuted by the police or something
I gathered the paperwork (I hate bureaucracy) and took it to this place called Transit Realty Associates where a super nice lady helped me out with all the things and I got my permit in a record time
Luckily, repertoire choices were done at an early stage if this process so basically getting the permit was the only thing from stopping us
For the very first concert thought, we did sort of like a “beta” try out of what we want to do in the end which is teach people about what we play while we play, but more on that later…
Our repertoire choices are the following ones:
Sonata for Violin and Basso/Continuo in G BWV 1021
Sonata for Violin and Basso/Continuo in G BWV 1023
Air in G String (from Suite No. 3 in D, BWV 1068)
Selections from 2 Part Inventions for Keyboard:
- Invention No. 4 in Dm BWV 775
- Invention No. 6 in E BWV 777
- Invention No. 8 in F BWV 779
- Invention No. 10 in G BWV 781
- Invention No. 13 in Am BWV 784
Aside from all this, I already got a good folding chair, stands, and a plan
What are we missing!?
Oh yes! Locations!
We decided to start in one of the noisiest stations in all Boston, the very first subway station in the US: Park Street, home of most fragile trains ever!
Then again we have a loooooooooong way to go because there are WAY too many places but where there´s a will, there is a way!
Let us begin!
