We're gearing up for our concerts this weekend, and we hope to have you along with us to get acquainted with some Known Unknowns! We'll be opening our seventh season with little-known works by well-known composers, and there will be two performances in two cities! On the evening of Saturday the 23rd we'll be in Austin (7pm at Redeemer Presbyterian Church, map) and on the afternoon of Sunday the 24th we'll be in San Antonio (4:30pm at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Little Flower, map).
We'll bring you the a concerto by J.S. Bach for violin and oboe, more often performed in his later arrangement for two harpsichords, and an exciting overture from Rameau. Soprano soloist Julianna Emanski will perform an aria from Vivaldi's opera Motezuma, rediscovered in 2002, and we'll give you a break from Pachelbel's Canon in D and instead perform a delightful little partita for five solo strings.
We'll close the concert with Telemann's oratorio Der Tag des Gerichts (The Day of Judgment), in commemoration of the 250th anniversary of the composer's death. Featuring four vocal soloists, choir, and full orchestra, this will be the first known Texas performance of this, one of Telemann's final major works.
Individual tickets are on sale here, and season tickets are also still available here.
