Bach and the Lute

Daniel Swenberg, lute

In recent seasons of the Carmel Bach Festival, we have become accustomed to observing the lute as a participating instrument in medium and small ensembles. Gorgeous to look at, but sometimes almost too muted to hear, some have assumed that the lute serves as an eye-candy relic of a lost tradition from the Renaissance and early Baroque. Well, that perception is about to change for a privileged few.

I say, “for a privileged few,” since the two presentations of “Bach and the Lute,” in the limited-seat foyer at Sunset Center were among the first events at Carmel Bach Festival 2019 to sell out. If you haven’t already obtained tickets to the intimate Sunset Center Foyer concert “Bach and the Lute,” you are out of luck, but for those of us already with tickets, we are in for one of the most interesting chamber concerts to be heard at Carmel Bach Festival 2019. The concert takes place on Wednesday, July 17 and 24, at 1:00 pm in the Foyer at Sunset Center.

Carmel Bach Festival — Wednesday Evening Concerts at the Mission

Carmel Bach Festival Mission Concerts

Festival concerts at the Carmel Mission Basilica inspire listeners with their stunning beauty and joy. The 2019 edition, “Christmas at the Mission,” furthers that tradition and is presented Wednesdays, July 17 and 24, 8:30 pm, at the Carmel Mission Basilica. “These concerts are the final chapter of the Christmas Oratorio journey, coupled with a set of beautiful a cappella works by Arvo Pärt, the great Estonian ‘spiritual minimalist,’” says associate conductor Andrew Megill. “Pärt’s Seven Magnificat Antiphons, sprinkled throughout the program, are meditative, trance-like, and transcendent.”
