Pacific Mozart Ensemble
The Pacific Mozart Ensemble presents
Featuring Richard Strauss' 'Deutsche Motette'
Winter is over. Spring awakens. In March. Richard Strauss' Deutsche Motette and J.C.F. Bach's Wachet Auf exhort us to shed our winter covers and welcome spring. Works by Ulysses Kay, Charles Ives, Mendelssohn and Brahms round out the program.
The Pacific Mozart Ensemble's goal is to bring new and innovative music or interpretations to Bay Area audiences. Their performances of works by composers such as John Adams, David Lang, Meredith Monk and Dave Brubeck are often the first-ever performances of that music by an ensemble outside of the full-stage production setting.
PME has frequently served as the chorus for the Berkeley Symphony over the past ten years, making it possible for Conductor Kent Nagano to program important symphonic/choral works that otherwise might have gone unheard in the Bay Area.
And yes, they perform Mozart!
And Brahms, Vivaldi and Poulenc, too. The Pacific Mozart Ensemble is as committed to the classics as it is to unearthing the new hallmark sounds of the twenty-first century.
A key ingredient in PME's musical offering is a cappella Jazz & Pop. Each year, they devote an entire concert to Jazz & Pop, featuring many arrangements created by their own members.
The Pacific Mozart Ensemble's musical director is the Grammy-nominated Lynn Morrow, and its Artistic Director is Richard Grant.
This marks the PME's first performance in Sonoma County.
