Johann Sebastian Bach Mass in B Minor, BWV 232
We end our 35th Season with the monumental Mass in B Minor, a work Bach returned to again and again during his life. Although it draws upon Lutheran and Catholic traditions the B Minor Mass holds deep significance for people of all religious and cultural origins. Bach scholar Christoph Wolff describes the B Minor Mass as “…a summary of his writing for voice, not only in its variety of styles, compositional devices, and range of sonorities, but also in its high level of technical polish ... Bach’s mighty setting preserved the musical and artistic creed of its creator for posterity.”
2:00 pm Pre-Concert Lecture: Talking Bach is a series of free pre-concert lectures by noted Bach scholars one hour before performances at National Presbyterian Church. The series is open to all ticket holders.
