Elisa Citterio director
Krisztina Szabó mezzo-soprano
Online Premiere: December 2, 2021, 8pm EST
You are invited on this baroque journey through human emotions showcasing a remarkable Canadian singer.
The sheer beauty and soulfulness of the human voice infuses this concert featuring mezzo soprano Krisztina Szabó — one of our first guest soloists since February 2020. Music Director Elisa Citterio has curated a program of contrasting moods that range from dramatic intensity to cheerful effervescence.
Passionate arias from three Vivaldi operas are even more striking when paired with two sacred arias by members of the Bach family, including the powerful lament Ach dass ich Wasser gnug hätte by Johann Christoph Bach. Orchestral works by Alessandro Scarlatti, Dall’Abaco, and Johann Bernhard Bach mirror the expressive range and intensity of the arias.
Whether articulated in song or orchestral selections, the energetic spirit of the baroque era is alive and well in this journey that spans the full gamut of human emotion.
