Dresden Fashions

conductor: Simon Lee

Zelenka – Miserere in C minor
Heinichen – Oboe Concerto in G minor, S.237
Lotti – Credo in F
Hasse – Concerto for Oboe and Two Violins
J.S. Bach – Concerto (after Vivaldi), BWV. 596
Hasse - Miserere in C minor

Against the backdrop of his conversion to Catholicism, Frederick Augustus I was responsible for patronising many artists. Known as the Imperial Vicar, he invited the notable Italian composer Antonio Lotti to travel to his beautiful palace in Dresden for a residence of two years. As well as a consort of Italian musicians, Lotti brought the Venetian sunshine to Dresden, and other composers were quick to adopt this style which was so in vogue. Cappella Novocastriensis returns to Jesmond United Reformed Church with an ensemble of instrumentalists to perform a selection of music which would have been heard in the Ducal court. Alongside Lotti, other composers imitating the Italianate style included in the programme are Johann Adolph Hasse, Johann David Heinichen, Johann Sebastian Bach and Johann Dismas Zelenka.

Genealogy of a Genius - Bach family motets

Orlando Chamber Choir
Oliver John Ruthven, organ
Lucy Goddard, director

Johann Michael Bach: Herr, wenn ich nur dich habe
Johann Michael Bach: Halt, was du hast
Johann Sebastian Bach: Komm, Jesu, komm
Johann Sebastian Bach: Ich lasse dich nicht
Johann Ludwig Bach: Das ist meine Freude
Johann Christoph Bach: Lieber Herr Gott, wecke uns auf
Johann Christoph Bach: Herr, nun laessest du deinen Diener
Johann Christoph Bach: Der Gerechte
Johann Christoph Bach: Fuerchte dich nicht
Johann Christoph Bach: Es ist nun aus mit deinem Leben
Knut Nystedt: Immortal Bach

Orlando Chamber Choir invites you to an evening of copious counterpoint by Johann Sebastian Bach, his ancestors and their descendants. We reel you into the repertoire with "the" Bach's moving masterpiece "Komm, Jesu, komm" - but no sooner have you settled in your seat than we sing you off it with the double-choir jubilation of "Das ist meine Freude" by Bach's third cousin Johann Ludwig. Further down the family tree we find Johann Michael, Bach's father-in-law and uncle to his first wife. He intricately interweaves his motets' melodies to set hymns and Psalm texts simultaneously, creating a contemplative discourse between heavenly and earthly voices. Johann Michael's brother Johann Christoph contributes more intimately crafted compositions with madrigalian musicality and word-painting aplenty. We leave you with the hope and comfort of Bach's "Ich lasse dich nicht" which, true to its title, once heard stays with you forever. Come and marvel at the masterful motets of this phenomenal family!

Beethoven: Symphony No 4 in B flat
Barber: Adagio for Strings
Beethoven: Piano Concerto No 4 in G

The concert is rounded out with masterful works by Ralph Vaughan Williams and Samuel Barber, two composers who were influenced by the works of Beethoven. Explore the fate of a man who composed for princes and kings, who ushered in a new era in classical music becoming its hero, and is remembered today as an emperor among men, one of the greatest composers of all time.

How shall we sing the Lord's song?

Gareth Wilson, conductor
Renaissance Singers, choir

Marc’Antonio Ingegneri: Missa Laudate Dominum
Marc’Antonio Ingegneri: O sacrum convivium
Marc’Antonio Ingegneri: Emendemus in Melius
Marc’Antonio Ingegneri: Hodie assumpta est Maria
Marc’Antonio Ingegneri: Exultate Deo
Marc’Antonio Ingegneri: Lauda Sion
Marc’Antonio Ingegneri: Quae est ista

Marc’Antonio Ingegneri (1535/6-1592) enjoys but brief mention in history books as a composer of madrigals, contemporary of Palestrina, and, perhaps most notably, teacher of Claudio Monteverdi, who sang as a chorister at Cremona cathedral where Ingegneri was maestro di capella. Despite being at the forefront of the liturgical reforms proposed by the Council of Trent, his sacred music has fallen into neglect. Using fresh new editions of his music, this concert will offer a programme demonstrating the emotional and imaginative breadth of a compositional master whose contribution to the history of music demands better recognition.
