Oregon Bach Festival Discovery Series: Cantata 74

Wednesday, July 3rd, 2019; 7:30PM

Bach constructed four Cantatas intended for Pentecost Sunday. Cantata 74  (“Wer mich liebet”) was first performed in 1725 and is comprised of eight movements. The text focuses on personal and individual responses to faith, thus the work relies heavily on vocal soloists.

J.S. Bach’s “Wer mich liebet” (BWV 74)
Oregon Bach Festival Berwick Chamber Chorus
Scott Allen Jarrett, conducting

Handel and Haydn Society: Mozart Requiem

Sunday, May 35th, 2019; 3:00 PM

Mozart’s sublime final composition, left unfinished at the time of his death, is universally acknowledged as one of the most powerful and moving masterpieces ever composed. In the hands of Harry Christophers and the musicians of H+H, it will be an experience to remember. The Requiem has an otherworldly beauty intimating that—having already glimpsed the beyond—Mozart is on the threshold of eternity. Harry Christophers conducts this final concert of the season that also includes Mozart’s stately Masonic Funeral Music, a tour de force motet by Bach, and Allegri’s polyphonic masterpiece. This music will reverberate in your soul long after the last note has faded to silence.

Mozart: Masonic Funeral Music
Allegri: Miserere mei, Deus
Bach: Singet dem Herrn
Mozart: Requiem

Blue Heron: Ockeghem@600

Sunday, March 10th, 2019; 4:00PM

Blue Heron continues their Ockeghem series with one of his most celebrated works, the astoundingly complex yet captivatingly beautiful Missa Prolationum, constructed (like Bach’s Goldberg Variations) as a series of canons at different intervals—but Ockeghem’s are double canons, in which four sung parts are generated from two written ones. A truly mind-expanding musical experience!

Scott Metcalfe, Conducting

Free pre-concert talk by Sean Gallagher (NEC) at 7:15 PM / Doors open at 7 PM
