Music of the Baroque: Easter Oratorio

April 10, 2022 - April 10, 2022  7:30 PM
North Shore Center for the Performing Arts in Skokie
9501 Skokie Blvd., Skokie, IL 60077
(312) 551-1414

Dame Jane Glover leads the Music of the Baroque Chorus, Orchestra, and four world renowned soloists—Yulia Van Doren, Elizabeth DeShong, James Gilchrist, and Michael Sumuel—in Bach’s imaginative Easter Oratorio, a journey from a cavern’s darkness into the magnificent light of heaven. Gilchrist takes a solo turn in Bach’s only surviving cantata for tenor, “I, wretched man.” The motet "Komm, Jesu, komm" and the thrilling Sinfonia in D Major—possibly a fragment of a lost violin concerto—complete this all-Bach spring extravaganza.

Sinfonia in D Major, BWV 1045
"Komm, Jesu, komm," BWV 229
Cantata No. 55, "Ich armer Mensch, ich Sündenknecht"*
