Join him in his BEMF concert series début in a journey through the great master’s music for harpsichord and organ. Before settling in Leipzig, Bach spent much of his early life traveling across Germany, gaining fame for his virtuosic keyboard playing. Bach immersed himself in the local German styles but just as eagerly exposed himself to music from Italy, France, and England. Experience the vivid contrasts of a youthful Bach’s intense keyboard writing, at turns electrifying and serene, as he explored (and often tried to surpass) these diverse influences.

Lenten Lunchtime Concert Series (2 of 5)
Wesley United Methodist Church, 114 Main Street
Cost: Free Will Offering
Performing: Michael Steven Lianos, organist
 
Details: As you care for a friend or relative with dementia or Alzheimer’s, have you wondered what they may be going through? Robert Schumann did not have either, but his mental faculties were slipping out of his control, which can have its parallels. The way he writes his Sonata in F minor, it seems as though he is writing down a journal entry – his anger, his child-like playfulness, noticing that alongside his condition intensifying, his wife Clara Schumann is slipping away. Beyond the story, Schumann is known for writing technically challenging music. Be on the edge of your seat with this passionate, yet Olympic sonata. These concerts are from 12:10pm to 12:50pm and are designed as concerts to enjoy during your lunch break from work, or to rejuvenate your afternoon with serious classical music. Bring your own bagged lunch to enjoy during these concerts. A free-will offering will be received at the end.

When you come to Evensong here it is as if you were dropping in on a conversation already in progress — a conversation between God and people which began long before you were born and will go on long after you are dead.” Why celebrate Evensong?

Cost: Tickets: Gen: $25; Sr/Stu: $20 - $10-$40
Performing: GMChorale - Joseph D'Eugenio, Artistic Director
Sunday May 5, 2019
Details: The Austrian composer Anton Bruckner may be best-known for his symphonies, eleven immense orchestral works that are vast in scale and dimension. But in his “day job” as an organist and choirmaster, he composed a wealth of exquisite sacred music for his choirs at Sankt Florian monastery (where he had been a choirboy in his youth) and at the cathedral at Linz. His ethereal Mass No. 2 in E minor, composed in 1866 to celebrate a new chapel in the Linz cathedral, is scored for eight-voice mixed choir and a small group of wind instruments. This Mass, widely acknowledged as among Bruckner’s best works, evokes the cathedralesque musical architecture of the Renaissance masters overlaid with the rich harmonies of the nineteenth century. The program also includes a selection of motets by Bruckner and others. Tickets $10-$40.
