Johann Michael Bach: Halt, was du hast
Johann Sebastian Bach: Komm, Jesu, komm
Johann Sebastian Bach: Ich lasse dich nicht

Johann Christoph Bach: Lieber Herr Gott, wecke uns auf
Johann Christoph Bach: Herr, nun laessest du deinen Diener

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!

Prince: Beethoven’s Fourth Symphony and Fourth Piano Concerto

Warren Mailley-Smith, piano
Piccadilly Sinfonia

Vaughan Williams: The Lark Ascending
Beethoven: Symphony No 4 in B flat
Barber: Adagio for Strings
Beethoven: Piano Concerto No 4 in G

The Piccadilly Sinfonia presents five concerts that celebrate the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth. The second concert in the series, Prince, features Beethoven’s Fourth Piano Concerto and his Fourth Symphony, works premiered in 1807 in a private concert at the home of Prince Franz Joseph von Lobkowitz. 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.
