J.S. Bach – Magnificat in E-flat major

Alexander Weimann leads the Northwest Baroque Masterworks ensemble of five internationally renowned soloists, a full baroque orchestra, 3 trumpets, and timpani in a performance of the original version of J.S. Bach’s Magnificat in E-flat major. Written for Christmas Vespers in 1723, this version includes four rarely heard and delightful inserts that illuminate the Nativity story. Join us for a fascinating new slant on a familiar masterpiece.

Northwest Baroque Masterworks is presented in collaboration with Early Music Vancouver, Portland Baroque Orchestra, and Early Music Society of the Islands.

Advance ticket sales will be charged a $5 fee per order.

–> This concert is an LMP CRITIC’S PICK, selected by Seattle music critic Philippa Kiraly.
