Individual Concert Sales:

Salieri, Requiem

Kuhnau, Magnificat

Sunday, March 10, 2019 at 3 pm

Church of the Holy Name
1689 Centre Street, West Roxbury, MA 02132

Antonio Salieri was one of Europe’s most renowned composers during his lifetime, though his reputation has long since been overshadowed by his contemporary, Mozart. Johann Kuhnau, who preceded J.S. Bach as music director of Thomaskirche in Leipzig, was a highly regarded composer of keyboard and sacred music in his time. While Mozart’s Requiem and Bach’s Magnificat have become cherished staples of the choral canon, these corresponding works by their contemporaries are virtually unknown. Come hear a rare performance of these unjustly overlooked masterworks by two remarkable composers.

Gian Carlo Menotti, The Unicorn, The Gorgon and The Manticore

Randall Thompson, Frostiana

Saturday, May 11, 2019 at 8 pm

Second Church in Newton
60 Highland Street
West Newton 02465

Gian Carlo Menotti’s charming madrigal opera, The Unicorn, The Gorgon, and The Manticore, is one of the composer’s most accomplished works. In it, he introduces us to three mythical beasts that represent three phases of life: young, middle, and old age. Under the guise of a fairy tale, he delivers a caustic critique of affectation and materialism. With a small orchestra and an engaging range of musical textures, this piece is sure to delight.

Randall Thompson’s Frostiana, commissioned for the 200th anniversary of the town of Amherst, MA, has become a classic since its debut in 1958. Frost’s seemingly simple poetry is matched by seven beautifully-crafted movements capturing both the essence and impact of the poet’s verse.
