Masterclass: BWV 9 with Pulitzer Prize winning composer John Harbison
January 13 at 7:00 PM

Be in the audience as the Bach Institute participants explore and perfect arias from Bach's Cantata BWV 9, Es ist das Heil uns kommen her under the direction of John Harbison, Emmanuel Music's Principal Guest Conductor, who will also share insights about the relationship between the music and the text of the Cantata.

As one of America’s most distinguished artistic figures, Harbison has composed music for most of its premiere musical institutions, including the Metropolitan Opera, Chicago Symphony, Boston Symphony, New York Philharmonic, the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, Chicago Chamber Musicians, and the Orion, Emerson, and Cleveland Quartets. He is the recipient of numerous awards and honors, including the prestigious MacArthur Foundation award, the Pulitzer Prize, a Kennedy Center Friedheim Award, a Heinz Award, the Harvard Arts Medal, and the Hobilt Award from the Boston Symphony and Harvard University, coincident with the stream release of his complete symphonies by the Boston Symphony, derived from a survey of his symphonies conducted by James Levine, who has commissioned and performed Harbison's music extensively over the last two decades.
