Outside the Bachs:
Bach Easter Oratorio
New Orleans | Orpheum Theater
The last concert in our Outside the Bachs series is centered on compositions that utilize repurposed materials and starts out with two works by 20th century composers. Hovhaness’ Alleluia and Fugue attributes its flowing polyphonic style to choral works of the Renaissance, while Harbison’s The Most Often Used Chords draws its inspiration from the instructional pages of a blank music-writing notebook. The concert concludes with Bach’s Easter Oratorio which heavily uses repurposed musical materials from his earlier works.
