    Villarosa Sequences

    For the Boston Choral Ensemble, a new year means bringing brand new music to Boston, this time all the way from Sweden.

    For the Boston Choral Ensemble, a new year means bringing brand new music to Boston, this time all the way from Sweden. BCE is excited to open our 9th season with the first complete North American performance of Thomas Jennefelt’s Villarosa Sequences, featuring soprano soloist Teresa Wakim. Jennefelt’s seven-movement symphony for voices combines the meditative qualities of minimalist tone clusters with the drama of vibrant melodic lines to craft a unique choral experience that is at once peaceful and exhilarating. The traditional role of text is challenged in the Villarosa Sequences, where musical ideas serve as the inspiration for a series of Latinate lyrics purposefully crafted by the composer to complement his musical vision. We hope that you will join us and become one of the first to experience this innovative and inspiring work!

      From the first moment of this performance, I was captivated. The quality and tone of the Boston Choral Ensemble was sublime. Each voice complimented each other. Jennefelt’s music was breath-taking... Expand
