Madison Bach Musicians: Baroque Holiday Concert
December 7 @ 7:15 pm - 10:00 pm
Internationally recognized baroque trumpet virtuoso Kathryn Adduci, and soprano soloist Ariadne Lih will join forces in the dazzling melismatic flourishes of Bach’s Cantata BWV 51 Jauchzet Gott in allen Landen (Praise God in Every Land). The vocal and string ensemble will also perform the tender Cantata BWV 196 Der Herr denket an uns (The Lord Thinks of Us), possibly one of Bach’s earliest works. From the other end of the master’s life, Contrapuctus 19 from Die Kunst der Fuge (The Art of Fugue) in which Bach’s own name appears cryptically as a final motive.
Lecture 7:15 pm; Concert 8:00-10:00 pm
