Our March 26 concert will feature the Boston premiere of composer Anna Weesner’s Love Progression: A Personal Essay, for oboe and string quartet, a Winsor Music commission. Dr. Weesner is chair of the music department at University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, and describes her new piece as “equal parts reflective, studious, and cheeky.” Recently, we had a chance to talk with her about the premiere and her background.

Winsor Music has released a new CD of Bach soprano arias from the cantatas, including arias from BWV 21, 57, 80, 94, 98, 144, and 187. It's a companion piece to the CD released in December, 2016 with Cantatas 202, 32, and 84. Both are now available as CDs and (soon) as MP3 downloads, on the website here, and at concerts and parties.
