Presented by the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra as part of the Bach & Beyond Series at the Chan Centre

Tracy Dahl Soprano
Johannes Sebastian Bach’s set of four orchestral suites were written around 1725, and all are festive, fun, brilliant examples of the genre; and none are more lovely than Orchestral Suite No. 4.
Bach wrote an enormous number of extraordinary cantatas, and was a master of the genre. Mozart’s Exsultate Jubilate is jubilant and glorious – and both it and the Bach cantata are perfect vehicles for the sweet, lyrical tone of soprano Tracy Dahl.
