MIT CCCS 2019 Spring Concert: Passion and Glory

MIT CCCS 2019 Spring Concert: Passion and Glory

The MIT Cambridge Chinese Choral Society proudly presents its 2019 spring
concert, “Passion and Glory,” featuring masterworks of European
composers.

Led by music director Dr. Yufen Yen and accompanied by Dr. I-Ying Lin, this
musical journey starts in the Romantic period in Germany where Brahms, with
his sentimental and passionate melody of “Zigeunerlieder,” or “The
Gypsy Songs,” brings us a taste of the happiness and sorrow that spring
from a heart full of love. Afterward, a selection from contemporary British
composer John Rutter explores the mystery and paradox of life. We then
conclude our concert in Baroque Venice with Antonio Vivaldi’s Gloria.
Performing with a chamber orchestra, we will bring you the full rendition of
this joyful hymn of praise and worship to God.

Come join us for a magical night of traveling through heaven and earth with
music, and experience the spiritual glory and passion of love that has
resonated with humanity through the centuries.

Date and time: Saturday, May 25, 7:30 PM
Location: MIT Kresge Auditorium (48 Massachusetts Ave, Cambridge, MA)
Tickets: $15 general admission, $10 early bird through May 22
Group discounts available for groups of 10 or more

Passion and Glory – 劍橋合唱團2019春季音樂會

劍橋合唱團本季將演出全系列歐洲作曲家作品,包括韋瓦第「榮耀頌」、布拉姆斯「流浪者之歌」(吉普賽之歌)、及當代英國作曲家暨合唱指揮約翰·盧特的三首合唱小品。
「流浪者之歌」(吉普賽之歌)是浪漫時期作曲家布拉姆斯最有名的聲樂作品之一。全組曲共11首歌,以德文演唱,聲響色彩豐富,全部使用四二拍,展現吉普賽民族的熱情與傷感,本次演出輯選其中四首。
生於義大利威尼斯的韋瓦第,早年曾擔任神職,是巴洛克時期重要多產的作曲家。這首「榮耀頌」的樂譜,在韋瓦第逝世約兩百年後才被發現,目前咸認創作年代是在1713-1717年間,為他當時任教的一所專收女童的孤兒院的聖誕慶典所作。由於本身是小提琴家,伴奏部分可以聆賞到豐富的絃樂音效。賦格的運用、各聲部的競唱、活潑爽朗的樂風與音群,都展現巴洛克時期音樂的豐盈。這也是劍橋合唱團近年開始與職業音樂家合作以來,樂團編制最大的一次演出
