LES CONCERTS: MASS IN B MINOR
with Orchestra la Scintilla, Florian Helgath conductor
ES CONCERTS, the concert series with the Zürcher Sing-Akademie and Orchestra la Scintilla, presents the Mass in B minor by Johann Sebastian Bach - an unparalleled choral work with which the Zurich Sing-Akademie can show all its musical and artistic facets.
Bach has taken decades to work on and perfect one of the most important sacred works in music history. The "Mass in B Minor" is a true musical highlight and a magnificent experience - not only for the audience, but also for the performers. The solo arias of the work are written so differently that it is difficult to cover them with four soloists. Therefore the Zurich Sing-Akademie presents the work with its own soloists out of the choir ranks. A very unique alternative that takes the character of the piece into account and turns the performance into a very personal experience. The Baroque Orchestra of the Zurich Opera House "La Scintilla" is not only an expert in performance practice, but also in vocal accompaniment.
