World Premiere: July 15, 1965, Mixed Chorus / New York Philharmonic / Leonard Bernstein, conductor
Continuing the celebration of his 100th birthday, the San Luis Obispo Master Chorale and Master Chorale Orchestra perform Leonard Bernstein’s energetic setting of six different Psalm texts with traces of dance music in the styles of West Side Story and Candide.
ERNEST BLOCH Avodath Hakodesh (Sacred Service)
In 1929, Swiss born American composer Ernest Bloch received a commission which was the impetus for Avodath Hakodesh. The Sacred Service – for baritone, an ample mixed chorus, and orchestra – was completed in 1933. Bloch’s dramatic work is considered a watershed of artistic engagement with the Hebrew liturgy, yet intended to speak to a universal audience.
Glad to see that they are doing this! Go and hear this….. It’s wonderful!
A fabulous performance. Our family really enjoyed the San Luis Obispo Master Chorale. Sweet music to our ears!
