Condolences to Prof. Haken

Some of you may remember fondly the concert Professor Rudolf Haken gave at Haller Lake Music Series on his viola pomposa. This year his lovely, talented young daughter died. At a memorial service held recently at the University of Illinois, Prof. Haken played Prelude and Gavotte en Rondeau from J.S. Bach’s Partita III, BWV 1006. You can view it on YouTube at

For those of you unlucky enough to have missed that HLMS concert, you can listen to get an idea of how fine the music was that evening.

Haller Lake Music Series
