The Osanna Chamber Ensemble is excited to announce our upcoming concert ‘Dmitri Bortnyansky–Son of Ukraine (1751-1825) The Music of an Orthodox Classical Church Composer’.
By juxtaposing Bortnyansky’s liturgical harmonizations with several of his choral concerti, our next concert program dives into the essence of his compositional thought and its implications on the history of Eastern Orthodox sacred music.
Today, many dismiss Bortnyansky’s work as purely Italianate Galant – and yet much of it sits as a cornerstone of our liturgical singing. What about his music continues to move Orthodox faithful to this day? Why do musicologists disagree about this music? How can a stylistic approach be formed? How is Bortnyansky’s music connected to later developments in Russian Orthodox sacred music? What musical seeds did he plant, and did they grow or lay dormant?
The concert will take place on Friday, September 2 at 7:00 pm at Holy Family Parish – 763 E Main St, Little Falls, NY 13365. The admission price is $15 for adults (children 12 and under are free) and can be purchased at the door or reserved by emailing email@example.com.
