A Festive Christmas with the Pacific Baroque Orchestra
Saturday, December 2, 2023 at 3:00 p.m. - First Church of Christ Scientist
Alexander Weimann and the Pacific Baroque Orchestra invite you to celebrate the holiday season with a festive selection of works from the Italian Baroque. It was an Italian tradition to compose music for Christmas Eve, and this programme of instrumental works written specifically for Christmas celebrations paints a rich and colourful musical landscape.
J.S. Bach’s enchanting Pastorale in F Major for organ was likely written for Christmas services in Leipzig, where Bach worked. Arcangelo Corelli’s Christmas concerto, written for Christmas night and arguably his most famous work, has been a holiday tradition for over 300 years. These popular selections are paired with lesser-known masters of the Italian Baroque to create a night of festive celebration.
