Bach, Bloch & Don Quixote

Nov 15 - Nov 17, 2019

Cellist Alisa Weilerstein is our “narrator” in two works that seek to find meaning in life. Ernest Bloch’s Schelomo gives musical voice to the wise words of King Solomon in the Bible: “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.” Richard Strauss casts the cello as the quirky Don Quixote and the viola as his trusty sidekick Sancho Panza in the famous tale of the man of La Mancha and his quest to bring chivalry to the world. Two works of transcendent elegance by Johann Sebastian Bach round out our evening’s tale
