The Bach in Baltimore Orchestra opens its first BEYOND BACH Series Concert: Music of the Gods with Handel’s ebullient Water Music. This spirited and stately work for horns, oboes, bassoon, strings, and continuo is fit for the gods and goddesses atop Mount Olympus. Handel composed it for a concert on the River Thames for King George I. After such royal fanfare, the music will turn fiery and call to mind the Roman God of War, Mars with Beethoven’s Egmont Overture, Op. 84.

Can’t make it to Munich this fall? Don’t worry! Bach in Baltimore opens its 2019-2020 season with a taste of the rich and delicious German Baroque music traditions in our Baroque Oktoberfest concert, featuring Bach’s rousing Cantata 20 that begins with a march fit for a king and showcases a spirited chorus, a trio of oboes, bright brass aria for trumpet, and solos for alto and tenor. It is paired with Telemann’s lively Tafelmusik II: Ouverture Suite in D major, which represents the peak of sixteenth-century courtly table music.

Mozart’s 19th-century biographer Otto Jahn declared Mozart’s Symphony No. 40 in G minor or the “Great G minor symphony” as “a work of pain and grieving.” This haunting composition is only one of two symphonies that Mozart wrote in minor keys often eliciting stronger and darker emotions. This reflects both his interest in the popular “Sturm und Drang” movement and the personal turmoil of Mozart’s life. He composed Symphony No. 40 during a dark time—he was facing mounting debts and dealing with the death of his infant daughter.

Bach in Baltimore is overjoyed to welcome back contemporary composer Hollis Thoms in the world premiere performance of his newest opera, Adam and Eve, featuring returning soloists Jason Thoms as Adam; Sarah Bleasdale as Eve; and Kristopher Jean and Maria Sheehan as Satan/Serpent. The original opera will be paired with Bach’s Cantata 165: O heilges Geist- und Wasserbad, a watery and poetic piece that conjures images of purification of the soul through baptism and the Adam and Eve story.
