MUSIC BY

CANDLELIGHT

Yaniv Attar, Guest Conductor - 

Experience the thrill of hearing music in a candlelit, sacred space that reflects the purity and vitality of music. Arvo Pärt’s “Cantus in memoriam Benjamin Britten” is a work meant to be heard in a church. Infused with spiritual significance and church modes, the purity of the sounds provide comfort. By contrast, J.C. Bach’s music is energetic and stormy, the embodiment of the Baroque style, while the music of Chevalier de Saint-Georges, though written only a few decades later, reflects the energetic drive of the Baroque and the clean lines of the Classical period. Finally, Schubert’s melodic and breezy Fifth Symphony ends the program with a joyfulness that can only be reflected in candlelight.
