One of today’s leading Baroque interpreters, Matthew Halls takes the Jacksonville Symphony through a program spanning the 18th, 19th and 21st centuries. Johann Sebastian Bach may be universally recognized today, but it was Felix Mendelssohn who brought his music into the mainstream nearly 75 years after his death. The inspiration of Bach’s extraordinary genius is revealed in Mendelssohn’s moving “Reformation” Symphony and in Kramer’s playful BACH meets EsCHeR.
