Ars Lyrica Houston presents Conflict & Concord
This first of two all-Bach programs for Ars Lyrica's Fall 2020 season explores the rich repertory of cantatas and chamber music from the great Baroque master. Cantata 170 transcends human suffering with beautiful melodies and delicate textures, while Cantata 134 celebrates the joys of the next world with sumptuous orchestral and vocal forces. Between these masterworks, principal players offer a remarkable trio sonata Bach composed for Frederick the Great, from a collection infused with ideological and musical contrasts.
The concert will feature Steven Brennfleck, tenor, and Leia Lensing, mezzo-soprano.
