Mission: to seek and share inspiration
BACH: Magnificat, BWV 243
JULIA ADOLPHE: Equinox for chorus (World Premiere)
BRAHMS: Triumphlied (“Triumphal Hymn”)
Reuben Springer was inspired to fundraise for our treasured Music Hall by a thunderstorm—a tempest that pounded the tin roof of the temporary Saengerhalle and drowned out the voices of the May Festival Chorus. This weekend’s program celebrates music performed during the May Festival’s stormy 1875 season, including Bach’s Magnificat, a Baroque-era treasure, and Brahms’ Triumphlied, a celebratory reflection on the Orchestra’s and the city’s German roots. Looking to the future, the May Festival premieres a choral commission by composer Julia Adolphe.
Get inside the minds of composers and to the heart of the music with Classical Conversations, one hour before Friday, Saturday and Sunday Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra subscription concerts. This weekend Julia Adolphe will be speaking!
