BACH's HERCULES

Missa Brevis in G Major
Orchestral Suite No. 1 in C Major
Laßt uns sorgen, laßt uns wachen Cantata 213

Kathryn Mueller soprano
Ian Howell countertenor
Derek Chester tenor
Jesse Blumberg baritone

with the American Bach Choir

The 25th Season Bach Celebration continues in February with the composer’s Missa Brevis in G Major, the Orchestral Suite No. 1 in C Major—a tour de force for the ensemble’s oboes and bassoon—and Herkules auf dem Scheidewege (“Hercules at the Crossroads”), composed to celebrate the 11th birthday of Frederick Christian. The young prince went on to rule Saxony with extraordinary grace, diplomacy, and civility, and this cantata praised, by example, both his wisdom and musical gifts. Bach later reused the opening chorus, arias, and duets in the “Christmas Oratorio.”

These performances are generously sponsored in part by Jan Goldberg.
