Program

BACH Mass in B Minor
Founded in 1990 in Japan, Bach Collegium Japan’s reputation for great Baroque performances is worldwide. “The fleet Bach Collegium emphasizes beauty and a flowing line,” says The Times of London, and their founder has a “subtle ear for color, a keen sense of harmonic direction, and an ability to make phrases breathe and rhythms live” (The New York Times).

Encore:BRAHMS Andante from Piano Quartet No. 3 in C Minor, Op. 60
Fresh off her JapanNYC solo recital, Midori teams up with some friends that Carnegie Hall audiences have come to know well. Biss made his Stern/Perelman solo debut in January, and Belcea Quartet cellist Lederlin is back on his own. For their finale, they join violist Imai in a quartet by Dvorák with sweeping symphonic scope and shades of Eastern European folk music.
