True Concord presents: Choral Music of Latin America

  • St. Francis in the Valley Episcopal Church (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Experience the rich history of Latin American choral music, sampling works from the Renaissance to today, from culture to culture.

Your journey will take you from Brazil to Argentina, Mexico to Venezuela, and back to Puerto Rico, hearing the intense flavors and colors of these traditions through sound. True Concord voices will be spiced with an infectious rhythmic pulse, enhanced by percussion, guitar and piano.

The centerpiece of the program is Villa-Lobos’s Bachianas Brasileiras no. 5, featuring acclaimed soprano Corinne Winters. This work reflects the cellist-composer’s Brazilian heritage and his life-long admiration for the music of Johann Sebastian Bach.

With an intimate pairing of guitar and soprano (originally written for eight cellos), the composer creates an expansive, soaring and haunting melody, with the voice rising ecstatically over a rain forest wall of sound.

Humid air – The rhythm of rain – Song of exotic birds
– The breath of the forest –
All resulting in the composer’s most indelible work.

True Concord presents: Mozart Requiem

True Concord presents: Mozart Requiem

As the story goes, Mozart was approached by a mysterious messenger from an anonymous source, commissioning him to write a Requiem Mass. During the decline of Mozart’s own health, composing that work took on great personal significance. Facing questions about death and mortality, Mozart wrote “I fear I am writing a requiem for myself.”

The resulting work reveals terror and repentance balanced with an intimate tenderness – a musical expression of grief. 

In fact, Mozart was working on the uncompleted work on the last day of his life. He died after composing eight bars of the Requiem’s “Lacrimosa,” the last words he set to music marking “that day of tears and mourning…” 

In contrast to the somber grandeur of the Mozart is the luminous Lux Aeterna (Eternal Light) by Morten Lauridsen. Written in response to his mothers’ death, Lauridsen turned his grief into radiant sound. The work includes five movements, each blending into the next, based on references to light from sacred Latin texts. 

Morten Lauridsen, “the only American composer in history who can be called a mystic,” is the most performed American composer of choral works. The five-time Grammy nominated composer, named “American Choral Master” by the National Endowment for the Arts and 2007 National Medal of the Arts recipient, will be in residence with True Concord the week of the performances. 

As if traveling in rays of light, the listener is lifted by the voices and orchestra. These performances ask the ultimate question, and offer a shining answer.

RAVEL: Piano Concerto in G major

MOZART: Requiem in D minor, K. 626

Pianist Lise de la Salle has been hailed by Gramophone magazine as a “talent in a million,” and The Washington Post, in a recent review, said that she “played so well that, for much of the concert, the audience had to remember to breathe.” Hear de la Salle in a performance of Ravel’s infectious, jazz-infused, and, at times, ethereal Piano Concerto in G major.

Seraphic Fire’s Professional Choral Institute at AMFS is the only summer program in the country that trains up-and-coming talents for a career in ensemble singing. Students in the program join forces with members of Seraphic Fire’s professional vocal ensemble to perform Mozart’s hauntingly beautiful Requiem, based on the Roman Catholic Mass for the Dead. Mozart died while composing this work, which, famously, was commissioned by a patron who didn’t reveal his identity to Mozart but turned out to be Count Franz von Walsegg. Over the past two centuries, numerous musicians — beginning with Mozart’s pupil Franz Xaver Süssmayr, whom Mozart dictated notes to while he was dying — have made their own completed versions of this unforgettable work.

Spire sings a program of Remembrance and Reconciliation at AGO

“Remembrance and Reconciliation”

“This will be our reply to violence: to make music more intensely, more beautifully, more devotedly than ever before.” ― Leonard Bernstein

We begin the 2018 National Convention by honoring Bernstein’s call to action as we commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the end of World War One. The featured artists include speaker and narrator Dr. Matthew Naylor, president and CEO of the National World War I Museum and Memorial, Spire Chamber Ensemble, Festival Brass and Percussion, and Dr. Jan Kraybill playing the magnificent Casavant Frères Organ. Additionally, the world premiere of "Everyone Sang" by Sir James McMillan will be given. We will also remember long-time AGO member John Obetz.

Additional Participants:
Festival Brass and Percussion
James MacMillan Commission: Everyone Sang
"Blessed, How Blessed" New Hymn Text by Susan Palo Cherwien
Dr. Matt Naylor, President and CEO of the National World War I Museum and Memorial
