TENEbrae: Pathway to Light

The Sebastians and TENET, following last season’s acclaimed St. John Passion, are thrilled to join forces again for a transcendent concert of sublime sacred cantatas by the German baroque composer Dieterich Buxtehude and instrumental works by his compatriots Handel, Biber, and Kerll. This stirring program is an invocation of spring, calling forth hope from despair and light from darkness.

Bach to Bach: Brandenburg Concerti and Orchestral Suites

Our grand season finale juxtaposes the Italian virtuosity of Bach’s Brandenburg concerti with the French elegance of his Orchestral Suites—back to back. Rarely performed together, these magnificent works reveal two sides of Bach’s musical personality and feature an exceptional variety of instrumental colors: seductive flute, playful oboes and bassoon, majestic hunting horns, exhilarating harpsichord, and even the brilliant violino piccolo, played by our own in-house specialist, founding director Daniel S. Lee.
