Elements

Cynthia Miller Freivogel, violinist-leader
with Robin Walsh and Company

From its opening chord depicting chaos before the creation of the world, Les Elemens by Jean-Fery Rebel sounds astonishingly new even today. BCOC’s interpretation features original large-scale puppet creations by Robin Walsh, fluidly evoking through color and shape the basic elements of our world . . . and our humanity. An encore performance of Jean-Marie Leclair’s Violin Concerto in A minor completes our French-flavored program.

The Story of Jephte

Giacomo Carissimi’s exquisite Historia di Jephte tells the heart-wrenching biblical tale of Jephte, who must fulfill his vow to sacrifice his daughter in return for victory in battle. With the spotlight on an expanded BCOC continuo ensemble, six guest vocalists join us for this landmark 1648 oratorio and other musical gems from the Italian Settecento.

Marie

Cynthia Miller Freivogel, violinist-leader
with Wonderbound

After their collaborative production of A Dangerous Liaison in 2012, the Baroque Chamber Orchestra and Wonderbound immediately began to parley about their next adventure. Marie dives into the social, political, and romantic complexities surrounding Marie Antoinette . . . through a decidedly contemporary lens. An enticing marriage of art forms, with world-premiere choreography and music of Rameau, Gluck, Leclair, and Biber, plus original improvisations!

Friends and Rivals

Cynthia Miller Freivogel, violinist-leader

Handel, Telemann, and J.S. Bach: were they friends or rivals . . . or a little of both? Our season finale features superb works by these contrasting 18th-century masters, interwoven with stories of their intriguing interactions. Handel’s Concerto Grosso in F major; Telemann’s Concerto for Recorder and Flute; and Bach’s Orchestral Suite No. 2 (version for strings and continuo). David Rutherford from CPR Classical joins us as host, providing stories and commentary.
