“The refreshment of the soul”: Bach’s Concerto in F

January 17, 2015 at 2pm | Benaroya Hall

Benaroya Hall

Benaroya Hall houses two performance halls in a complex that is thoroughly integrated into downtown Seattle. Occupying an entire city block at the very core of the city, the development celebrates the vital role of performance events while maintaining the continuity of commercial life along one avenue and providing a much-needed public space, in the form of a terraced garden, along another.

Three of the world's most expressive composers come together for an afternoon of soul-enriching music. Johann Sebastian Bach is represented by scores both sacred (Cantata No. 54) and secular (Keyboard Concerto No. 6 in F), Antonin Dvořák characteristically combines classical elegance with folk-inspired melodies and dance rhythms (Serenade in d), and Hector Berlioz thrills with his all-stops-out romanticism (Roman Carnival Overture, plus music from Romeo and Juliet and The Damnation of Faust).

    Kamila Stern, soprano

In a concert focusing on the world of theater, Russian-born masters Dmitri Shostakovich and Igor Stravinsky remind us why their music is forever gripping and appealing. Shostakovich's score for the Russian film version of Hamlet is music of almost unbearable drama, and Stravinsky's ever-popular ballet Petrouchka is presented here in its original opulent scoring. SPO Don Bushell Competition winner Felicity James is featured in Saint-Saëns' lyrical Violin Concerto No. 3.
