Great art – Michelangelo’s ‘David’, Tchaikovsky/Balanchine ballets, or Shakespeare’s ‘Romeo and Juliet’ – changes the way we see ourselves and the world we live in. We open the 2015/16 season with chamber chorus masterworks – J.S. Bach, Giovanni Gabrieli, William Byrd and Felix Mendelssohn, and modern masters: Dominick Argento and Daniel Elder. The music of such masters transforms us before we know what is happening, what Mendelssohn described as ‘the art of concealing art’. Pianist Eduardo Rojas joins us for this evening of great Choral Art.
