The final concert in our anniversary season begins with the burst of exuberance and invention that is Bach’s Magnificat, a timeless musical description of devotion and grace.
High on Bach’s list of favourite composers (an enthusiasm now shared by Tafelmusik audiences) was Jan Dismas Zelenka, a Bohemian immigrant to Saxony. We continue our exploration of Zelenka’s music with our debut performance of his Mass Missa Divi Xaverii, a work of miraculous beauty and dazzling joy. Chamber Choir Director Ivars Taurins presides over this very special end to a celebratory season.
