As far as Bach Musica NZ know, their performance of Schumann’s Requiem (op. 148) will be a NZ premiere. The 35-minute composition is scored for four vocal soloists, choir and symphony orchestra. Bach Musica NZ are delighted to showcase a line-up of four rising young NZ vocal soloists.
Turkish-born internationally acclaimed classical guitarist, Barkin Sertkaya, will treat us to not just one, but two guitar concertos. The performance will commence with Concerto for Guitar by the Italian Baroque composer Vivaldi, followed by the most famous guitar concerto of all times, the Concierto de Aranjuez by Spanish composer Joaquin Rodrigo. Written in 1939, it is by far Rodrigo's best-known work, and its success established his reputation as one of the most significant Spanish composers of the 20th century. Its slow movement with its beautiful Cor Anglais solo captured the whole world.https://bachmusica.com/
