“The program opens with Mouret’s famous Suite de Sinfonie fanfare, which is better known as the ‘theme from Masterpiece Theater,’ followed by Bach’s famed Cantata # 51, Jauchzet Gott en allen Landen, a masterpiece for soprano Joy Strotz and baroque trumpeter Josh Dunlap,” according to a press release from TOCCATA. “Bach’s Concerto for Oboe D’Amore BWV 1055 will be performed by Nita Tune, and Vivaldi’s Concerto for Flute RV 428 (The Goldfinch) will be performed by Allison Smith. Concertmaster Jeffrey Lindhorst will be the featured soloist in Corelli’s Concerto Grosso Op. 6 #8. The concert finishes with Handel’s tour de force for soprano and trumpet, Let the Bright Seraphim, from the opera Samson.”
TOCCATA will also perform the show in Carson City Wednesday, Jan. 6; in Incline Village Friday, Jan. 8, and in Reno Sunday, Jan. 10.
The concert series is dedicated to the memory of Mark Lord, TOCCATA’s principal trumpet player from 2007-2014.
