Water Music and Gloria
Brandenburg Concerto No. 1
Ring in the new year in true Baroque style with Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 1 and Handel’s Water Music, and his recently discovered Gloria, featuring soprano Mary Wilson. All accompanied by champagne and chocolates at intermission sponsored by Cambridge Trust Company!
St. Luke Passion of 1744
Telemann wrote over 40 compositions based on the Passion texts, and his St. Luke Passion of 1744 is a quickly paced and lyrical display of his church style. Thomas Cooley and Andrew Garland sing the Evangelist and Jesus in this work that Boston Baroque has not performed since 1980.
Beethoven’s opera is a compelling story of political oppression, the fight for justice, and the triumph of love. A Boston Baroque premiere featuring an internationally renowned cast that includes Metropolitan Opera singers, tenor William Burden and soprano Wendy Bryn Harmer, in Boston’s first-ever period instrument performance of this work.
