Publick Musick: Ach! Wie flüchtig

When: Sat., Nov. 12, 7:30 p.m. 2022

This concert showcases expressions of sorrow, hope and joy in vocal and instrumental works of 17th-century German composers such as Tunder, Buxtehude, Bruhns, and Pachelbel. The program includes exquisite cantatas by both Tunder and Buxtehude for solo voices and a richly scored string ensemble of violins, violas da gamba, and violone, as well as a lovely Buxtehude sonata for violin, viola da gamba, and continuo. A highlight of the program will be two stunning four-voice cantatas of Nicholas Bruhns. Johann Pachelbel, the most familiar name on the program, will be represented by a heartfelt musical tribute to his beloved father.
