Primosch, Bartók, and Pärt
Fri, Jan 25, 2019 / 8pm
NEC's Jordan Hall
30 Gainsborough St, Boston
Join us! Featuring renowned oboist Peggy Pearson, James Primosch’s Matins is a provocative meditation on creation, brokenness, and renewal. A Cantata Singers and Winsor Music joint co-commission from 2003, Matins sets gorgeous poetry by Mary Oliver and Gerard Manley Hopkins for solo oboe, chorus, and string orchestra. Rounding out the program is Bela Bartók’s witty and engaging Divertimento for Strings and Pärt’s transcendent, gripping Te Deum for three choirs, prepared piano, strings, and tape.
Composer James Primosch will give the pre-concert talk, free to all ticketholders, at 7pm in Williams Hall.
Following the performance, all are invited to attend a free post-concert reception.
