Bach’s monumental Mass in B Minor is one of the uncontestable masterpieces of the choral literature. All of Bach’s hallmarks are present: intricately woven counterpoint; brilliant orchestral writing, like the joyous trumpet and drums punctuating the exuberant Gloria and Et resurrexit; profoundly expressive solo vocal passages; and an overall dramatic power that unfailingly uplifts the spirit.

"The main hall at Carnegie Hall, dedicated the Isaac Stern Auditorium in 1996, has been the premier classical music performance space in the United States since its opening in 1891, showcasing the world's greatest soloists, conductors, and ensembles.
