Cantata Reflections is a new initiative this season, designed to help promote Emmanuel Music's weekly Bach Cantata Series as a primarily visceral listening experience (rather than intellectual). The challenge is that Bach cantatas contain valuable musical and spiritual content, but their depth is accessible is only if you are comfortable enough to dig into them (and over time). The goal here is to lead with personal experiences of specific cantatas, and by musicians and audience members (not experts). Not that everyone will identify with the same personal experience, but this initiative is designed to give implicit permission to prioritize finding personal relevance.
The violinist/composer/conductor/ice cream entrepreneur Netta Hadari responded to questions from audience members--both in the room and participating virtually--while on stage during his recent violin recital. In the printed and digital program page, he provided a Quick Response code for audience members to scan with their phones.
