Ring in the New Year with the Dallas Bach Society with a performance of J.S. Bach’s complete Brandenburg Concertos. The Society is joined by virtuoso instrumentalists from around the U.S. for a festive performance of Bach’s greatest instrumental music, the set of Concerts à plusieurs instruments which he offered to the Margrave of Brandenburg. While this manuscript failed in its purpose of procuring a court position for the composer, and indeed languished unplayed for a century, the Brandenburg Concertos are Bach’s greatest instrumental music and have provided endless enjoyment for music lovers since they were popularized in the nineteenth century

Mass in B Minor

Mass in B Minor

For the first time in ten years, the great Mass in B Minor of Sebastian Bach, with soloists Anna Popov, Soprano, Agnes Vojtko, Mezzo-Soprano, Nicholas Garza, Countertenor, Dann Coakwell, Tenor, and Curtis Streetman, Bass. Bach’s most famous mass was composed piecemeal, starting with the Missa (Kyrie and Gloria), common to

both Lutheran and Catholic services, which he dedicated to the new monarch of Saxony, Augustus III, a Catholic. As he hoped, he was made “Electoral Saxon Court Composer” in 1736. Bach then reworked a Sanctus from 1724, and wrote the Symbolum Nicaeum and the remaining movements just before his death, finishing in 1749. While he never heard the whole mass at one sitting, we can now enjoy the magnificence of the work his son Carl Philipp Emanuel called “The Great Catholic Mass.”
