«Sound the golden trumpet»

Wed, 21. December 2022 | 19:30 UhrKKL Luzern, Konzertsaal

Music for choir and orchestra

  • Georg Friedrich Händel (1658 – 1759)

    • From the oratorio “The Messiah” HWV 56:
      «Denn die Herrlichkeit Gottes des Herrn» No. 4
      «Halleluja» No. 39

  • Antonio Vivaldi (1678 – 1741)

    • Concerto for two trumpets in C major RV 537

  • Johann Sebastian Bach (1685 – 1750)

    • «Freut euch alle» BWV 207a No. 9

    • Cantata «Darzu ist erschienen der Sohn Gottes» BWV 40

    • «Fallt mit Danken, fallt mit Loben» from the Christmas Oratorio BWV 248 No. 36

  • And of course the most beautiful Advent and Christmas carols to sing along with.

With festive baroque works for choir and orchestra, we ring in the Christmas season in the concert hall three days before Christmas Eve. Johann Sebastian Bach wrote the cantata “Darzu ist erschienen der Sohn Gottes” during his first Christmas season as Thomaskantor in Leipzig. It was performed in a church service on Boxing Day 1723, and was to be followed eleven years later by the “Christmas Oratorio”. Antonio Vivaldi’s Concerto for Two Trumpets was also written for performance in a festive service. In our Christmas carol concert, you can experience the trumpeters of the Luzerner Sinfonieorchester playing at the front of the orchestra for once. Handel’s “Messiah” has been performed, not in church services but in concert halls ever since it was written. With its “Hallelujah” and – hopefully – a jointly sung “Silent Night”, we will send you off into the Christmas season.
