J.S. Bach’s greatest composition for orchestra, chorus, and vocalists showcases his incredible talent for blending the intimacy of a religious service with the grandeur of a full chorus and orchestra. Moments of delicate introspection are juxtaposed with powerful, awe-inspiring full-throated exaltations of God. His melodies, characteristically straightforward and beautiful, are supported by harmonies and counterpoint that nod to his musical predecessors yet feel fresh at every listen. Legendary Bach interpreter Jane Glover leads the San Francisco Symphony and a roster of world-renowned vocalists in this monumental and moving work.
Open Rehearsals are working rehearsals. The pieces rehearsed are at the conductor’s discretion.
