Colorado Bach Ensemble presents BWV 66: Erfreut euch, ihr Herzen (Rejoice, All Ye Hearts)

With its origins as a birthday celebration for Prince Leopold in 1718, this cantata was first performed on Easter in 1724. With a lively and lilting opening movement, the galloping rhythm propels through a myriad of emotions. The final Chorus/Chorale is derived from the traditional Latin Easter Sequence Chant “Victimae Paschali Laudes” ending the cantata with the Greek ”Kyrie eleis.”

Variant 6 presents "Moonlite: A World Premiere of Wally Gunn with Mobius Percussion"

Variant 6 joins Mobius Percussion for a concert presentation of a new original work by Wally Gunn in May 2019.  It will be based on the true story of the 19th-century Australian outlaw Andrew George Scott, known as “Captain Moonlite.”

Captain Moonlite—a rogue, a brigand, a criminal, and a queer—is an outsider who chafes at the constraints of Victorian-era society. He dreams of founding a utopia for himself and the lover he met in prison, James Nesbitt. Unable to make a life in society upon their release, Scott and Nesbitt resign themselves to living outside it, and in pursuing this end, the pair, by misconduct and misfortune, fall foul of the law. Banding together with some other misfits, they set off on a gruelling trek through Australia’s arid outback and find themselves in a series of increasingly desperate situations which culminate in a stand-off and shoot-out with police. An officer is shot and killed, and Nesbitt, also shot fatally, dies in Scott’s arms. Scott, stricken and defeated, is imprisoned and sentenced to death by hanging for his crimes. In his cell, he writes heartrendingly of his love for Nesbitt, his terrible loss, and his hope that he will be reunited with his lover in the next world.

Cut Circle: "To Love Another: Renaissance Music by Du Fay, Ockeghem, and Josquin"

To love another—would humiliate my heart,” sings the devoted lover in Johannes Ockeghem’s famous “D’ung aultre amer,” evoking the power of love to captivate, nourish, and, on occasion, destroy. Love can be earthly and sensual; it can also be spiritual and divine, as when a Biblical figure is cast as the object of desire.

“To Love Another…” will feature the music of both romantic and spiritual intensity by Du Fay, Ockeghem, Josquin, and their contemporaries.

Kathryn Radakovich Sings Nina Simone

An incredible talent with a fiery spirit, a brilliant compositional mind and a haunting voice, Nina Simone was an iconic American artist. With a career that spanned over three decades, Ms. Simone was not only a highly regarded jazz musician, but also a civil rights activist and a voice for many who had none. She created songs that brought storms of controversy as well as adoration, and she rearranged the works of others to fit her own musical identity. By her own admission she was no saint, but her work was always honest and brave. Nina's legacy is colossal - her musical ideas and social commentary are both incredibly relevant in 2019.  Denver jazz vocalist Kathryn Radakovich will be exploring Nina's work over the course of this three show series with superb trio supporting her work.
