James Kennerley will provide a thrilling improvised soundtrack to the classic 1922 horror film Nosferatu. The Film: German Expressionist film Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror. Released in 1922 as the first film adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula (with names changed due to studio copyright issues), Nosferatu is as haunting as they come and is still recognized today as one of the most chilling vampire films of all time. In this highly influential silent horror film, the mysterious Count Orlok (Max Schreck) summons Thomas Hutter (Gustav von Wangenheim) to his remote Transylvanian castle in the mountains. The eerie Orlok seeks to buy a house near Hutter and his wife, Ellen (Greta A Schroeder). After Orlok reveals his vampire nature, Hutter struggles to escape the castle, knowing that Ellen is in grave danger. Meanwhile Orlok's servant, Knock (Alexander Granach), prepares for his master to arrive at his home.

A fast-rising star on the international stage, Benjamin Alard has been hailed for his “intellectual mastery” (The Globe and Mail) in his performances of Johann Sebastian Bach’s music. 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. Pre-Concert Talk at 7pm. <a href="http://www.bemf.org/pages/concerts/18-19/alard.htm" target="_blank">http://www.bemf.org/pages/concerts/18-19/alard.htm</a>

The Duruflé Requiem has firmly obtained its place in the choral canon after that of Gabriel Fauré, which was performed as part of this series last season. The composer based his work on the Gregorian chants for the Mass of the Dead. It is truly a quintessential reflection of early 20th century Parisian liturgical musical culture. The St. John’s 40-voice choir of children and adults joins forces with Hartford’s favorite organist, Larry Allen, along with trumpet and timpani, in this sublime performance, on Saturday, March 23 at 3pm.

Charles Wood’s St. Mark Passion was written in the span of 9 days at the request of the Rev. Dr. Eric Milner-White (then Dean of King’s College in Cambridge and institutor of the Service of Nine Lessons and Carols at King’s). The St. Mark Passion, a large scale work soloists, choir and organ, traces Jesus’ last days from The Last Supper to the Crucifixion. As with Bach’s Passions, hymns are interspersed throughout the narrative to draw the audience into the action. Presented by the La Farge Ensemble.

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? Evensong offers to us the opportunity to gather and spend time in prayer while listening and participating in music that is
