For immediate release on January 26, 2018:
(Minneapolis, Minn.) The Mirandola Ensemble today announced its upcoming concert premiere of “Out of Winter’s Darkness Comes Light: A Midwinter Concert of German Songs”. The program travels from medieval and Renaissance Germany with works by Daser, Senfl, Praetorius and Hassler, to the German Baroque with works by Schein, Schutz, and C.P. Bach; and then concludes with Romantic works (somewhat of a rarity for the Mirandola Ensemble) by Schubert and Brahms, as well as early 20th century composer Hugo Distler’s gorgeous variations on “Es ist ein Ros entsprungen”.
