Johann Sebastian Bach and His Predecessors (a Friends of Music Concert)

Thursday, May 02, 2013, 07:30pm


“Bach and his Predecessors” offers a glimpse of the musically rich world from which Bach emerges. The synthesis of many styles led to Bach's masterpieces. In the current age of globalization and instant communication, one can turn back several centuries to hear the sheer beauty and depth of emotion of the sound world from which Bach would later emerge.

Featuring the Music of:

Dietrich Buxtehude (c.1637-1707)
Georg Muffat (1653-1704)
Heinrich Schütz (1585-1672)
Samuel Capricornus (1628-1665)
Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750)

About TENET:

TENET is one of New York’s preeminent vocal ensembles. Under artistic director Jolle Greenleaf, TENET is winning acclaim for its innovative programming, virtuosic singing and command of repertoire that spans the Middle Ages to the present. TENET features distinguished soloists who shine in one-voice-to-a-part singing and as joined voices in small ensembles. TENET is ensemble in residence at the historic St. Ignatius of Antioch Episcopal Church on New York City’s Upper West Side where they have presented critically acclaimed performances such as selections from Claudio Monteverdi’s dazzling collection of sacred music, Selva Morale e Spirituale, music by the Renaissance master Nicolas Gombert and 20th century groundbreaker Francis Poulenc, an annual Christmas concert that has become a local holiday favorite, and a concert in honor of the 400th anniversary of Giovanni Gabrieli’s death with New York Polyphony and the Dark Horse Consort, in conjunction with the Five Boroughs Music Festival. TENET made their Metropolitan Museum of Art debut last February in a program celebrating their Italian Portrait exhibition.
