Grand mas­ters: Baroque Holy Week con­certs

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

The Santa Fe Pro Mu­sica Baroque En­sem­ble, as­sisted by so­prano Kathryn Mueller, con­tin­ues with the fi­nal per­for­mances of its an­nual Baroque Holy Week con­certs at the Loretto Chapel (207 Old Santa Fe Trail). Three lead­ing lights of the late Baroque grace the pro­gram this time around. An­to­nio Vi­valdi is rep­re­sented by his Sin­fo­nia e Sonata al Santo Se­pol­cro; Jo­hann Se­bas­tian Bach by his Can­tata No. 82, “Ich habe genug” (in its re­vised ver­sion for so­prano with flute ob­bli­gato); and Ge­orge Frid­eric Han­del by his Or­gan Con­certo in G mi­nor (Op. 4, No. 1), his Ger­man aria “Süsse stille, san­fte Quelle,” and his Trio Sonata in G ma­jor (Op. 5, No. 4). Han­del pil­laged his own back cat­a­log in that par­tic­u­lar trio sonata, in which he re­pur­posed move­ments he had orig­i­nally used in his or­a­to­rio Athalia, his “light en­ter­tain­ments” Terp­si­chore and

Par­nasso in festa, and his op­eras Radamisto and Al­cina — the last of which fig­ures in Santa Fe Opera’s up­com­ing sea­son. Call 505-988-1234 or visit www.tick­ for ticket avail­abil­ity. — James M. Keller
