Event Details

Amicus welcomes back conductor Chris George who was so hugely popular when he worked with us in November 2017 on a programme of Beethoven and Mozart. This year, inspired by our recent Leipzig trip, JS Bach is at the heart of our programme, with three of his chorales arranged in full-blooded symphonic versions by Leopold Stokowski (of Fantasia fame), and Brahms' great C minor Symphony, which is also indebted to the great master. The soloist is Christian Elliott, the new principal cellist of the Irish Chamber Orchestra and a superb baroque specialist.

Stokowski/Bach - "Jesus Christus, Gottes Sohn”, from Easter Cantata “Christ lag in Todesbanden” BWV 4
Vivaldi - Cello concerto RV 405 in D minor
Stokowski/Bach - Chorale prelude “Wachet auf!” BWV 645
Vivaldi - Cello concerto RV 415 in G major
Stokowski/Bach - “Jesu bleibet meine Freude” from cantata "Herz und Mund“ BWV 147
Brahms - Symphony No 1 in C minor Op. 68
