Welcome to a concert with historical buzz when the Finnish Baroque Orchestra, the Norwegian Soloists' Choir and conductor Grete Pedersen occupy the University's aula with music by father and son Bach!
In our time, Johann Sebastian Bach has overshadowed his son, Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, who was more acclaimed in his day. C. P. E. was seen as a future-oriented composer, with a style that in several ways broke with his father's musical ideals. He himself said that music, first and foremost, should touch the heart, and described his own music as more personal and emotional than his father's.
But when C. P. E Bach was commissioned to put together the program for a charity concert in Hamburg in 1786, he chose his father's magnificent Credo from the well-known H minor mass, in addition to his own expressive Magnificat, the composer's first major choir composition.
Experience when the Finnish Baroque Orchestra, the Soloist Choir and Grete Pedersen bring the concert from 1786 to life in the University's aula!
