Due to the pandemic, last year’s Christmas concert had to be designed for a smaller apparatus, and our audience could join us only online. This year will be different, as the Pannon Philharmonic will delight you exclusively with famous choral compositions. The night’s guest of honour will be Bach: a motet, an oratorio cantata and the musical setting of a biblical canticle of the volume of an oratorio.  Although Bach’s church repertoire was rather extensive, he composed only six motets, as the board in Leipzig much preferred selecting items from the old motet books. Bach tried to show off his entire scope of skills in these works, and they became memorable cornerstones in the choral repertoire. The Christmas Oratorio is, in fact, a 6-part cantata series covering the entire Christmas season, the first cantata focussing on the birth of Jesus. The concert will conclude with the Virgin Mary's Canticle, the Magnificat: “My soul doth magnify the Lord.” Bach’s music is primarily defined by this motif. The Magnificat doesn't present to us a young pregnant woman having had a long and arduous journey behind her but the celestial splendour of God's presence in the lavish light of Baroque, iD major, accompanied by festive trumpet music.

It is the start of a new season in which we welcome you!
