Marissa Regni on J.S. Bach's Concerto for Oboe and Violin:
"This work has long been one of my favorite pieces. I especially love the slow movement. In my opinion, it's one of the most beautiful dialogues written between two instruments. I'm really looking forward to playing the work with Nick Stovall; it's always fun to collaborate with my NSO colleagues. I can't think of a more lovely way to kick off the holiday season."
Nicholas Stovall on J.S. Bach's Concerto for Oboe and Violin:
"Bach's writing in the Concerto for Oboe and Violin is very conversational, so I'm sure Marissa and I will have a good time collaborating. The gorgeous slow movement will be a particular pleasure as it offers exquisite, long singing lines for the soloists."
Adriana Horne, NSO principal harp, on the program:
"This all-J.S. Bach program intrigues me. I really enjoy concerts that focus on one composer and explore several different facets of his or her compositions. I also love when members of the orchestra are featured as soloists, so I'm excited to hear Nicholas Stovall and Marissa Regni in Bach's Concerto for Oboe and Violin."
