2017 Vancouver Bach Festival
August 8th at 1:00 p.m., Playing with Bach, at Christ Church Cathedral, Vancouver BC
Though Bach was a profound composer he also had a serious sense of play with music, occasionally using the initials of his own name as a fugue subject. This sense of play inspires this program of solo violin music from the first part of the 18th century, with each initial of Bach’s name represented by a sonata, fantasia or partita: Bach’s B minor partita (H in German), Telemann (fantasias in B minor and Eb/C minor) and Pisendel (the sonata in A minor) for solo violin. Pisendel’s sonata dates from around 1716, Bach’s manuscript dates from 1720 in Cöthen, and Telemann’s fantasias were published in Hamburg in 1735. This is a glimpse into three German composers writing in very different styles for solo violin.

August 10th at 7:30 p.m., Music of Missions and Mysteries: Latin American Baroque
As the Spanish empire colonized Latin America, music became an important tool for evangelism and a key part of the quest to convert and ‘civilize’ the indigenous populations. In this programme, Pacific MusicWorks, led by GRAMMY award winner Stephen Stubbs, explore the vibrant mix of Italian, Spanish, African, and indigenous elements that created the new musical style that developed in the cathedrals and missions of Mexico, Cuba, Guatemala, and Bolivia. Both immigrant and native composers celebrated and explored the great mysteries of faith in spirited and vivacious works that can continue to speak to us today. Music by Esteban Salas, Manuel José de Quiroz, Manuel de Zumaya, and others.

Portland Baroque Orchestra - Mozart's Requiem
Music, like fashion, swings back and forth like a pendulum through time; some eras are passionate and fiery, others restricted and emotionally restrained. Breaking with the restraint of the classical period, nothing feels timid or conservative about Mozart’s Requiem. Timpani, strings, brass, chorus, soloists–all are brought to bear on the Latin text’s plea for peace and eternal rest.
