Afisa Bach2019

5 November to 1 December 2019 

Bach Chamber Music Festival

Riga, Latvia

The International Bach Chamber Music Festival is focused on the intimate, the soulful, the personal. It manifests the producers' desire to reveal Bach from the "quiet side" and show that the relatively few sounds in a chamber music score can say just as much in the way of fundamental ideas, thoughts and content as Bach's major vocal and symphonic compositions.

The concept of the Festival strives to embrace a wealth of aesthetic, cultural and historical values. For one thing, audiences at the festival hear seldom performed interpretations of Bach's chamber music, including the compositions that were produced by the great artist's sons and contemporaries, as well as the music inspired by Bach's personality. The festival is also a cradle for new music - each year there are new works commissioned especially for the festival.

Lucretia Borgia - Capella de Ministrers
Saturday 23 November, 19h00
Instituto Cervantes Paris- Fr/Es

A musical tribute to Lucrezia Borgia, the daughter of Alexander VI.  She was married three times, had an illegitimate child and one of her husbands was murdered.  All this happened in the short span of thirty-nine years when the Renaissance was in full flow.  Capella de Ministrers’ programme is based on music from Lucrezia’s time and is an attempt to reveal her humanity and break away from the stereotype of a dissolute and incestuous woman by placing her in the historical context and the daily life of her time.

GLOBAL ITALY. From the Iberian Peninsula to the New World 
Úbeda and Baeza, Jaén, Spain

During the Modern period, the continuous circulation of Italian musicians and their arrival to all the corners of the world (including Latin America and the Philippines, via the Iberian Peninsula) resulted in a globalization of the so-called “Galant” style, considered to be synonymous with modernity and sophistication. The FeMAUB 2019 includes a series of concerts which are representative of the transnational connection of Italy to the Iberian Peninsula and the New World, as well as a conference devoted to Ignacio Jerusalem y Stella (1707-1769), a Neapolitan composer who is commemorated on the 250th anniversary of his death.

Eccles' Semele
Tuesday 26 November at 8pm
Trinity College Chapel, Cambridge-UK

Cambridge Handel Opera Company, Cambridge Early Music and Academy of Ancient Music join forces for the first time for a rare concert performance of John Eccles' Semele.
​Semele is a lively retelling of the story of Jupiter’s pursuit of the Theban princess. Juno plots her downfall by persuading her to insist on seeing him in his divine form, whereupon his thunderbolts consume her. Planned for the opening of London’s Italian Opera House, Semele was never performed at the time, and the libretto is best known today from Handel’s later Oratorio.

Pre-concert talk at 6.30pm - Michaelhouse Chapel
Professor Peter Holman and Dr Alan Howard presented by Dr Ruth Smith
