This will be the fifth event in the second of two seasons of concerts of the cantatas of J.S. Bach, all of which will be presented by NYVS. The schedule and content for the other three 2022-23 presentations is:
#6: April 15 - Cantatas 191-198, Will Healy, piano
#7: April 29 - Cantatas 205-215, David Enlow, piano
Maestro Rosenbaum writes, “A few years ago I made the decision to eventually perform every choral movement from every choral cantata written by Bach. I’ve hired fabulous pianists to accompany each concert. Doing this massive project, learning and presenting so much choral music of Bach that the vast majority of the audience likely never heard before, will be very rewarding and fulfilling for me and my singers.”
Founded in 1988 by conductor Harold Rosenbaum, The New York Virtuoso Singers has become the country's leading exponent of contemporary choral music. Although the chorus performs music of all periods, its emphasis is on commissioning, performing and recording the music of living American composers. The choir appears on nearly 50 commercial CDs.
