Concert: CSO Episode 16: Harberg, Gabrieli & Bach

Strum, a string quintet by acclaimed New York composer Jessie Montgomery, Amanda Harberg’s Hall of Ghosts, written in 2020 at the height of the coronavirus pandemic, evokes haunting loneliness through the use of a single piccolo. Gabrieli’s Sacred Symphonies published in 1597, immediately transport the listener to a religious service in Renaissance-era Venice. Completing the program are two of Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos: the intricate No. 3 and the lively No. 6.
