When he died at only 35 years of age, Mozart left his Requiem uncompleted, yet it is undoubtedly among his most magnificent achievements. Who can forget the fiery “Confutatis,” which alternates between male voices damning the wicked and ethereal women’s voices invoking the Lord to take innocent souls to heaven? Or the poignant “Lacrimosa”? Pianist Rudolf Buchbinder opens the program with Mozart’s turbulent Piano Concerto No. 24 in C Minor.
These concerts are generously sponsored by Mr. and Mrs. Dietrich M. Gross.

Sunday, 1 February 2015 - 2:00 PM
“The passion and dramatic verve Muti masterfully elicited … is simply magnificent,” said NPR about the Chicago Symphony Orchestra’s music director. In this program, Riccardo Muti conducts Scriabin’s Symphony No. 1, a passionate ode to art—the composer’s first major orchestral work. Prokofiev’s Alexander Nevsky, a cantata drawn from his complete score to Eisenstein’s classic film, comprises music accompanying some of the film’s most memorable scenes, including the grim chant of invading Teutonic knights, the Russian people’s rousing exhortation to battle, a heartfelt lament, and the Battle on the Ice—one of the greatest fusions of image and music ever made.

Pre-concert talk starts at 1:00 PM in Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage with Harlow Robinson, an author, lecturer, and Matthews Distinguished University Professor of History at Northeastern University.
Presenter: Carnegie Hall

Riccardo Muti conducts works by two Russian composers for whom he has a remarkable affinity. Scriabin’s First Symphony is a glorious six-movement work that culminates in a triumphant chorus, yet it also holds much tender lyricism. Prokofiev’s cantata Alexander Nevsky, by contrast, is full of fire and steel, its imaginative orchestration and rousing choruses evoking Russia’s medieval victory over invading Teutonic knights.

The appearance of the Chicago Symphony Chorus is made possible by a generous gift from Jim and Kay Mabie.

The Bach Institute at Valparaiso University was established to ensure the legacy of the music and theological perspective of Johann Sebastian Bach for future generations. The Institute explores the life and music of Johann Sebastian Bach from its proper historic, musical and theological context through faithful and artistic performances, seminars and other academic activities. These activities provide for the enrichment of Valparaiso University, its students, its community and the broader musical and religious communities in the United States and around the world. The Institute achieves its mission through performance, scholarly research and dialogue, and collection and preservation. Performances of Bach’s choral, organ, orchestral and chamber works are given by Valparaiso University students and faculty, as well as national and international guest artists. The Bach Institute at Valparaiso University was established by a generous gift from Phyllis (Buehner ’54) and Richard (’51, ’53 J.D.) Duesenberg. Phyllis and Richard Duesenberg encourage the educational vision of the Institute. “Since our student days at Valpo, we have dreamed of VU as an American center for the study of Bach’s music,” Richard Duesenberg says. “This Institute satisfies one of our long held ambitions for the University.”
