Bach Akademie Australia Perform with Lane Cove’s Madeline Easton

As audiences return to the concert halls after a profoundly challenging two years,
Bach Akademie Australia (BAA) and its redoubtable Artistic Director, LANE COVE born and bred violin virtuoso Madeleine Easton, present Grazie in Grazia:  November concerts dedicated to the spirit of thanksgiving – at Our Lady of Dolours, Chatswood and City Recital Hall, Angel Place.  Read more about Madeleine here.

The program marks a journey from Italy to Germany with works by Monteverdi, Marini, Merula, Gabrieli, Schütz and – of course – the celestial, immortal Johann Sebastian Bach.

“All of us have been through indescribable hardships over the last two years,” says Madeleine, “for each of us different but no less profound.

Upon reflection, it is clear that being grateful for what we have here and now, has helped sustain us through the pandemic.”

It is in this spirit that BAA presents Claudio  Monteverdi’s Mass of Thanksgiving, written to give thanks after the great plague of 1631.

Also featured is Monteverdi’s celebrated student Heinrich Schütz whose life was also deeply affected by plague and war, and who became one of J.S. Bach’s greatest inspirations and mentors.

The powerful climax is Bach’s greatest and most joyful Christmas Cantata BWV 63 ‘Christen, ätzet diesen Tag’, remembering that – in Madeleine’s words “After all is said and done – it is joy that music brings us.

And there’s none better than J.S. Bach to take us out of the darkness and into the light.”

Part 1 of the program begins in Italy with Monteverdi, interposed with works by other titans of the Venetian Renaissance, Marini and Gabrieli.
Part 2 takes us on a journey to Germany through the music of Heinrich Schütz, Monteverdi’s great pupil and teacher of J.S. Bach. Then Bach’s joyous Christmas Cantata.

Grazie in Grazia features a large orchestra and choir, with notable soloists including Chatswood born and bred (North Sydney Girls’ High alumna) Susannah Lawergren, Hannah Fraser, Richard Butler and Andrew O’Connor.

It is performed on Sunday 13 November in the exquisite acoustic of Chatswood’s Our Lady of Dolours Church at 2.30pm and in the spectacular City Recital Hall, Sydney on Monday 14 November at 7pm.
