SHADOW AND LIGHT

Saturday, January 25, 2014, at 8:00pm
featuring Laura Heimes, soprano
Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center

AVISON – SCARLATTI
Concerto Grosso No. 11 in G Major
J. S. BACH
Cantata No. 51 “Jauchzet Gott in allen Landen!”
TORU TAKEMITSU
Death and Resurrection US Premiere
ARTHUR HONEGGER
Symphony No. 2

Swiss master Arthur Honegger’s meditation on the horrors of World War II ends on a hopeful note and in so doing, echoes the chorale finale of Bach’s heart-stopping vocal tour-de-force, while Takemitsu’s exquisite modern Romantic opus reveals spiritual concerns similar to his musical forebears. The brilliant Early-18th -century English composer Charles Avison—unsung to this day—is represented by one from his collection of 12 unique creations fashioned around works for solo keyboard by Bach contemporary Domenico Scarlatti.

Praise for our guest soloist:

“She possesses not only a wonderful soprano voice – yet focused and seemingly free as a bird – but is also a magnetic presence on stage.”
Tribune-Review, October, 2003

“Among the guest soloists, soprano Laura Heimes was especially fine, with an agile voice and focused sound that, when required, easily penetrated the surrounding instrumental and choral texture.”
- The Oregonian, March, 2004
