Three Beautiful Things

Three Beautiful Things

Repast Baroque Ensemble

Saturday, March 3, 2012, 8pm

This event has ended.

  The cantata Drei schöne Dinge sind, composed by J. S. Bach’s mentor Dietrich Buxtehude, celebrates three beautiful things: friendship, brotherhood, and marital bliss. This program augments Buxtehude’s homage with a variety of duets, arias, and instrumental works extolling these same virtues by Bach, Buxtehude, Philipp Heinrich Erlebach, and other distinguished German musicans of the era. Repast Baroque Ensemble brings together an extended family of accomplished Baroque performers for this special program at the intimate and acoustically outstanding Academy.
