FESTIVALS

American Bach Soloists Festival & Academy
FESTIVAL HIGHLIGHTS
The 2014 festival, titled “Bach’s Inspiration,” will trace the influences of Italian, French, and North German composers on J.S. Bach’s life and music. It will feature works by Vivaldi, Handel, Buxtehude, and Bach’s forebears alongside masterworks by ABS’s namesake. Weekends are anchored by performances of Bach’s Mass in B Minor by the ABS Festival Orchestra and a concert performance of Handel’s L’Allegro, il Penseroso ed il Moderato. Other highlights include the Brandenburg Concerto No. 2 and a glorious reworking of Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater with soprano Mary Wilson and countertenor Eric Jurenas as soloists.
