“Never performed before by the ASO, Beethoven’s famous Emperor  Piano Concerto christens the stage at the hands of Stewart Goodyear, proclaimed “a phenomenon” by the Los Angeles Times. The concert opens with Lyric for Strings by Pulitzer Prize winner George Walker, considered one of America’s greatest composers. William Grant Still’s expressive 5th Symphony, Western Hemisphere, paints a beautiful picture as he describes it as, “when the new day dawns, the lands of the Western Hemisphere are raised from the bosom of the Atlantic.””

Redeemer Presbyterian Church – ensemble viii Presents The Young Sebastian: early cantatas and keyboard works of J.S. Bach

Friday, March 11 at 7:30 PM CST

“Johann Sebastian Bach is most known for his remarkable and super-human accomplishments during his 27-year tenure at St. Thomas Church in Leipzig. Though born into a musical family of great reputation, Bach’s entry into the world of music began in the provincial countryside of Germany. The early compositions of the young Bach, trained by his older brother, are undeniably rooted in the previous generation of compositional style. Yet, the genius of Bach was already apparent from the first stroke of his quill, and his unique and provocative accent began to push the established boundaries towards a new sound which would change the musical world forever. The final concert of the season features cantatas for choir and chamber orchestra along with keyboard works from Bach’s earliest periods of composing.”
