Conversation with Artistic Director Matthew Glandorf Ahead of the 2018-2019 Season of "NARRATIVES"
1. What is your guiding principal when putting together a season's repertoire and what common theme did you choose for this Sixths season of the Bach@7 series?
MG: In general, when planning Bach@7 programs, rather than only resorting to exploring the music of Bach and his contemporaries, I prefer to look to other centuries and find works that share a similar theme. For example, this season we will be visiting the earliest examples of the oratorio that developed in Rome in the 17th century – all the way to the 21st century, with a newly commissioned work that shares the same theme as Bach Cantata BWV 125.
