Age RecommendationAll ages
Alexander Weimann leads the Northwest Baroque Masterworks ensemble of five internationally renowned soloists, a full baroque orchestra, 3 trumpets, and timpani in a performance of the original version of J.S. Bach’s Magnificat in E flat major. Written for Christmas Vespers in 1723, this version includes four rarely heard and delightful inserts that illuminate the Nativity story. Join us for a fascinating new slant on a familiar masterpiece. “Weimann’s direction from the harpsichord and organ provides a masterful but sensitive accompaniment…” -The Whole Note Northwest Baroque Masterworks is presented in collaboration with Early Music Vancouver, Portland Baroque Orchestra, and Early Music Society of the Islands.
