Closing concert

Bach Gala - Like a Christmas Oratorio...

A final concert for this 2024 vintage of the FBM, conducted by Clemens Schuldt, music director of the Orchestre symphonique de Québec and considered one of the most formidable conductors to emerge from Germany in recent times. Imagine… a Weimar alumnus conducting some of J.S. Bach’s most beloved pages, including the Third Brandenburg Concerto and Cantata 214, Resonnez, timbales! Sound the trumpets! It’s almost like a Christmas Oratorio before its time! The festivities continue with Haydn’s Queen’s Symphony, a perfect illustration of the splendors of the French court. Fine pleasures and elegance!
