About

Helmuth Rilling, an ambassador for the music of J.S. Bach worldwide, leads the composer's Concerto for Oboe, Violin, and Orchestra featuring NSO Principals Nicholas Stovall and Marissa Regni, plus two cantatas and Orchestral Suite No. 3.

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."

Performance Timing: Part One - 42 min.; Intermission - 15 min.; Part Two - 46 min.

Organ Postlude:
Thu., Dec. 4 performance followed by a mini-recital on the Kennedy Center Concert Hall's Rubenstein Family Organ, free with purchase of concert ticket.
