A BAROQUE CHRISTMAS

DEC 15 + 18

Overview

Our musical gift for the holidays is sure to brighten your spirits with the joy of the season: Bach’s exhilarating cantata—a partnership of soprano and solo trumpet in friendly “rivalry,” enlivened by H+H’s period instruments—ends in a spectacular fugue on the word “Alleluia”; tours-de-force for soprano Robin Johannsen: Silete Venti, in which her opening words quite literally silence turbulent instrumental forces; and a heavenly Gloria. Plus Handel’s Concerto grosso and the H+H premiere of the lively Simphonie by much-admired Bach contemporary Jan Zelenka.
