Early Music Vancouver Summer Festival - Closing Concert

Christiane Mariane von Ziegler, Leipzig’s Poet Laureate (1733), vigorously defended women’s rights to improved education and literary enterprise. She was one of J.S. Bach’s esteemed librettists ( setting texts to nine cantatas) and a rare woman’s voice in the Lutheran liturgy. This programme celebrates the two Leipzig artists’ short but fruitful creative partnership.

Artists: Krisztina Szabó, mezzo-soprano; Philippe Gagné, tenor; Sumner Thompson, baritone, with the Pacific Baroque Orchestra directed by Alexander Weimann
