The subscription season opens with an attractive pairing of masterworks by two musical giants. Jeffrey Thomas will direct his renowned players in Bach’s fourth Brandenburg Concerto, a tour de force for violino principale and two recorders. The balance of the program will be devoted to Handel’s pastorale, Acis and Galatea. Full of buoyant, witty, charming melodies, it is one of his most popular operatic works. Thomas conducts a quartet of charismatic soloists in this story of love and jealousy. Acis pursues the nymph Galatea against the advice of his cohort, Damon, angering the envious giant, Polyphemus, whose murderous actions are annulled by a magical transformation. Two extraordinary vocalists make their ABS debuts on these programs.
