Our Distinguished Artist, Mary Wilson, is a well-established favorite of ABS musicians and audiences alike. This program is dedicated to the Italian side of Bach.

While in Cöthen, Bach had ample opportunity to study the published scores of Antonio Vivaldi. Continuing our “Bach Inspiration” theme, this program includes a concerto for four violins that Bach would later arrange for performance by four harpsichords, as well as a concerto for solo violin that he arranged for Harpsichord alone (both these are part of Vivaldi’s famous Op. 3 collection titled L’Estro armonico). Bach set only two works to Italian texts, and both of them will be part of this Festival. However, it is the music of one of Bach’s peers with which Ms Wilson has won the admiration of ABS audiences and (having been born in the same year as J.S. Bach, 1685) it is only right that we include a cantata by G.F. Handel. Written while still in Italy, Tra le fiamme warns that butterflies drawn to a flame will burn but a phoenix will rise again.
