“I know of no musician whose Bach playing on any instrument is of greater subtlety, beauty of tone, persuasiveness of judgement or instrumental command than Hewitt’s is here.”
- BBC Music Magazine

VANISHING POINT

Thursday, May 21 at 7:30pm

COmpass Resonance Ensemble returns in a performance that begins with the Colorado premiere of a minuet by Giuseppe Antonio Capuzzi (1755-1818), a composer that Music Director Zachary Carrettín has researched extensively in Italian archives.

 

Then, Mina Gajić performs Mozart's brilliant, charming, and poignant Piano Concerto in A Major K.414, on an exquisite Érard concert grand piano. The Festival Chorus completes the finale of our 39th season with the deeply profound and ecstatic motet, Jesu meine freude, by J.S. Bach.
