About the Concert

Our concert for Holy Week features two contrasting masterpieces by
contemporaries Domenico Scarlatti and J.S. Bach (both born in 1685).
Scarlatti's remarkable Stabat Mater, scored for ten independent voice
parts, is an outstanding example of Italian polyphony, with melodic
motifs and dissonances reminiscent of Monteverdi.  Jesu Meine Freude is the
greatest of Bach's six motets and represents the finest achievement of
the German Baroque.
