This program begins with a suite of Bach arias for soprano with obligato flute and violin. The premier of a cantata by Paul Jacobson concludes the concert. The new work, B+A+C+H—Lament to Jubilation, incorporates the BACH theme (Bb-A-C-B), which has been employed by composers from the time of J.S. Bach to the present. The libretto for the can- tata will feature poetry and prose ruminating on our present-day realities and dreams.
