GMChorale

Choral Music of Anton Bruckner: Mass No. 2 in E Minor and Other Gems

“Unexpectedly ethereal and luminous”

The Austrian composer Anton Bruckner may be best-known for his symphonies, eleven immense orchestral works that are vast in scale and dimension. But in his “day job” as an organist and choirmaster, he composed a wealth of exquisite sacred music for his choirs at Sankt Florian monastery and the cathedral at Linz. His ethereal Mass No. 2 in E minor, composed in 1866 to celebrate a new chapel in the Linz cathedral, is scored for eight-voice mixed choir and a small group of wind instruments. This Mass, widely acknowledged as among Bruckner’s best works, evokes the cathedral-esque musical architecture of the Renaissance masters overlaid with the rich harmonies of the nineteenth century. The program also includes a selection of motets by Bruckner.

Venue: Middletown High School
Santo Fragilio Performing Arts Center
200 La Rosa Lane, Middletown, CT
4:00 pm

Tickets: $8-$40

Fairfield County Chorale

Fairfield County Chorale presents Mendelssohn's Elijah

A Fiery Prophet for Truth

The Fairfield County Chorale will end its 56th season with a concert featuring Felix Mendelssohn’s “Elijah” with guest soloists: Andrew Cummings, Baritone, Elisa Singer Strom, Soprano, Guadalupe Peraza, Mezzo-soprano, Jang Ho Lee, Tenor. These remarkable soloists, along with a full orchestra, and the 100 voices of the FCC will bring to life this stunning oratorio.

The powerful story of Elijah, which recounts the Old Testament story from the Book of Kings, is as relevant today as when it premiered in 1846 and earned its rightful place in the cannon of masterful chorale works. As the Israelites experience a series of hardships that erode their belief, Elijah stands as a fiery prophet of truth to help his people overcome their crisis of confidence and restore them to their faith.

FCC Maestro, David Rosenmeyer, sees “Elijah” as a composition that speaks to the present day, as a commentary on the idea of staying steadfast to one’s own truth amid competing points of view. As Rosenmeyer explains, “Elijah is an expression of Mendelssohn’s own exploration of truth. His composition sought melody and musical forms that were pure and truthful, coming from the heart and through the structure of the composition, rather than reliance on flashy elements which he considered vain and superfluous to communicate his ideas. At the same time, Elijah is a sensational and profoundly beautiful piece.” Mendelssoh’s Elijah speaks to us now and brings this fundamental message to the present day.

Venue: 5pm
Norwalk Concert Hall
125 East Avenue
Norwalk, CT

Tickets: Single tickets $35 ($30 in advance). Student tickets are $5 at the door. Seats are General Admission.

West Hartford Women's Chorale

A Night of Shining Stars

West Hartford Women's Chorale Spring Concert

This Spring the West Hartford Women’s Chorale marks its 15th Anniversary with a very special concert. A new arrangement of Antonio Vivaldi’s “Gloria” will be one of the highlights of the West Hartford Women’s Chorale Spring Concert on Friday, May 31st at Trinity Episcopal Church in Hartford.

It is believed that Vivaldi wrote this piece in 1715 for a girls’ choir, which he conducted at an orphanage for illegitimate daughters of Venetian noblemen. The original manuscript was ‘lost’ after Vivaldi’s death in 1741, and was not ‘rediscovered’ until the 1920s. Since then, it has actually been performed more often by mixed (SATB) choirs.

Dr. Ethan Nash, the conductor of the West Hartford Women’s Chorale, specifically rearranged this piece for the spring concert in order to highlight the chorale’s strengths as an all female group. He based this rearrangement on his knowledge of historical partbooks and programs from the early 18th century, as well as a previous recording of this piece by the San Francisco Girls’ choir in 1998. The Gloria is one of Vivaldi’s most famous choral works.

The theme of this spring’s concert is “A Night of Shining Stars”. Many of the pieces to be performed reflect this theme, conveying a sense of hope and idealism. Among the pieces the Chorale will perform in addition to Vivaldi’s “Gloria”, will be excerpts from Leonard Bernstein’s “West Side Story”, a story of a love that triumphs over hate, and a medley from Pasck and Paul’s “The Greatest Showman”, the story of an idealist who follows his vision, despite the difficulties he encounters.

The concert will also feature music set to poems written by James Agee and Emily Bronte, in addition to original music written by contemporary composer, Kathleen Allan. Allan’s music was recently featured at the Festival of Women’s Voices Concert in March, an annual event in which area high school and adult women’s choirs participate, hosted by the West Hartford Women’s Chorale.

The concert will begin at 7:30 pm, with a reception following the performance. The ten dollar admission fee will help support the Chorale’s annual scholarship, awarded to a Greater Hartford Public School graduating seniors, who plan to pursue further music education.

Venue: Trinity Episcopal Church, Hartford

Tickets: $10 admission fee
