This noon concert is built around a substantial contemporary work, the "Bach Materia" by composer-in-residence Anders Hillborg. Hillborg's piece was commissioned by the Swedish Chamber Orchestra in 2017. For its US premiere, it is paired in Staunton with two related works by Bach: the striking Brandenburg Concerto No. 2 and Hillborg's own arrangement of the Bachian chorale melody "Ich ruf zu dir, Herr Jesu Christ."
J. S. Bach | Brandenburg Concerto No. 2
Hillborg | Bach Materia for solo violin and strings
Bach/Hillborg | Ich ruf zu dir, for oboe and strings
