Seraphic Fire presents J.S. Bach: The Easter Oratorio

Thu 13 Apr, 2017

Hailed for Bach interpretations full of warm humanity, Artistic Director Patrick Dupré Quigley leads the ensemble in J. S. Bach’s exuberant Holy Week masterpiece. The oratorio opens with two contrasting instrumental movements, an Allegro concerto grosso of the full orchestra with solo sections for trumpets, violins and oboes, and an Adagio oboe melody over “Seufzer” motifs (sighs) in the strings. Bach composed it in Leipzig and first performed it on 1 April 1725.
