'Ascension Oratorio'

Peter Harvey (bass)

(The ensembles that took Bach’s cantatas to 14 countries in their Bach Pilgrimage of 2000 return to the Royal Albert Hall for a Late Night Prom. The Easter Oratorio opens with a Sinfonia that pitches a trio of trumpets against consorts of woodwinds and strings, and a poignant Adagio for solo oboe. Scored for similar forces, the Ascension Oratorio features an alto aria that mirrors the curves of the Agnus Dei from Bach’s Mass in B minor. Sir John Eliot Gardiner, 70 this year, directs the internationally renowned Monteverdi Choir and English Baroque Soloists.)
