”The Philharmonia Chorale...dived headlong into the score's rich harmonies, and the Orchestra gave the music the necessary sparkle.”San Francisco Chronicle
About Bach’s Mass in B Minor
Bach’s B Minor Mass is one of the towering achievements of the Baroque, and indeed of all classical music. It is the summation of Bach’s creative output, but likely never performed in his lifetime.
As we continue our partnership with The Juilliard School’s Historical Performance program, we come together with Juilliard415, the conservatory’s principal period-instrument ensemble, for these performances. These concerts promise to be powerful and visceral, as impactful now as when Bach completed it in 1749. As we officially celebrate Music Director Richard Egarr, put this concert on your bucket list!
