Magnificent Bach Saturday May 18th, 7.30pm
Bach’s Magnificat is one of the most joyous choral works of all time. The music is infectious and yet profound, the choral writing complex but memorably melodic, and the solo writing elegantly beautiful. Like his Brandenburg Concertos, the fourth being performed in this concert by the incomparable Perth Baroque Orchestra, Bach creates virtuosic and exhilarating music that never fails to entrance the audience.
Vivaldi’s Gloria is probably the second most loved choral work, Handel’s Messiah being the favourite. Its style is clear and tuneful, the choir clearly featured above a judiciously orchestrated accompaniment, and the arias exquisite and memorable.
This concert will indulge concert goers’ love affair with the Baroque period. Perth Symphonic Chorus, under Dr Margaret Pride’s guidance, will present a brilliant and exciting evening in the entrancing architecture and acoustics of Winthrop Hall.
