Experience a spiritual odyssey beginning with the timeless serenity of Gregorian chant, transporting you to the vaulted arches of ancient abbeys. The journey continues with Bach’s Sinfonia, where melodic lines weave a complex yet harmonious tapestry, reminiscent of stained-glass patterns cast in sunlight. The sonic architecture ascends with Paul Jacobs on the organ, presenting a piece that showcases the grandeur and dynamic capabilities of the king of instruments. The evening culminates with a work that combines Bruckner’s devout faith with his rich symphonic voice, creating towering soundscapes that promise to resonate within the soul.

Preview Talk at 7 p.m. with KUSC midday host Alan Chapman.
