Music of J. S. Bach
Hear the Early Music superstars of tomorrow as more than fifty singers and instrumentalists of Juilliard415 and the Royal Academy of Music join forces in an all-Bach program led by legendary conductor Masaaki Suzuki and featuring Rachel Podger as concertmaster. These elite musicians from two of the world’s most revered conservatories offer blockbuster performances of Bach’s uplifting Ascension Oratorio and his dynamic and virtuosic sacred cantata Die Elenden sollen essen alongside the composer’s beloved Double Violin Concerto, all under the baton of one of the world’s most highly regarded interpreters of Bach.
