The Ulster Orchestra concert series continues with music inspired by Bach.
The Ulster Orchestra Derry-Londonderry concert series continues with music inspired by Bach, opening with Bach’s Ricercar, a six-voice fugue from The Musical Offering, beautifully arranged by Webern.
Brahms’s Fourth Symphony sees him draw heavily on his fascination with Bach and the Baroque era. He weaves rhythms, harmonies and variation patterns straight from Bach into a work that is, somehow, entirely Brahmsian in character. Finally, Schoenberg’s Verklärte Nacht is partly inspired by Brahms, partly by Wagner, and is full of lush and passionate melody.
