Jan Willem de Vriend (c) Eduardus Lee

Seasonal music for Christmas

Programme

  • Johann Sebastian Bach / Igor Stravinsky Choral variations on Vom Himmel hoch, da komm' ich her
  • Felix Mendelssohn Vom Himmel hoch, da komm ich her
  • Joseph Haydn Theresienmesse


Just before Christmas, the inspired conductor Jan Willem de Vriend comes to lead the Radio Philharmonic Orchestra and Groot Omroepkoor through an evening of sacred choral music. To be heard is a tribute by Igor Stravinsky to his favorite composer Bach. Then the radiant choral cantata Vom Himmel hoch da komm ich her by Mendelssohn, and finally one of the most beautiful masses by Joseph Haydn, in which the Austrian Empress Maria Theresa even sang the soprano solos!
