Brockes Passion

April 19, 2011

On Sunday, April 10th, I had a delightful time singing Brockes Passion with the NYC Holy Trinity Bach Choir and Bach Players, under the direction of Rick Erickson.

My next project with Rick and the Bach Players is a CD  with music by Buxtehude and Bach, called “Freud und Lust”, in which I perform a solo cantata.  The CD will be released by Deux Elles Records in the near future – keep an eye out for it!

Singing Johann Christoph Bach at the 4×4 Baroque Music Festival

September 19, 2010

My summer ended on a high note, under Avi Stein‘s direction at the 4×4 Baroque Music Festival in Manhattan, NY.  At the opening of the festival on August 27th, Avi directed “the music of German composers in the generation before Johann Sebastian Bach, including the work of an illustrious cousin, Johann Christoph Bach.”  I was fortunate enough to perform Johann Christoph Bach’s “Ach, dass is Wassers gnug hätte” (“Oh, That I Had Tears Enough in My Head”).  We got a great review in the New York Times!
