Bach’s Christmas Oratorio

Saturday 7 Dec 2024 7:30pm
Federation Concert Hall, nipaluna / Hobart

JS Bach Christmas Oratorio, BWV248 (selections)

Conducted by Stephen Layton, featuring the TSO Chorus, soprano Amy Moore, mezzo-soprano Hannah Fraser and bass Christopher Richardson.

This JS Bach rarity is a joyous musical setting of the Christmas story according to evangelists Luke, Matthew and John. Tracing the birth of Christ, the adoration of the shepherds and the visitation of the Wise Men, Bach draws upon the full resources of orchestra, chorus and vocal soloists to bring poignancy and humanity to the age-old nativity story. Of the six cantatas which make up the Christmas Oratorio, four are performed in this concert: parts one, two, three and six.

Don’t miss the concert event that will make the festive season one to remember.
