Choruses combine on Schutz, Bach

Two choruses specializing in religious music will hold a joint concert in early April in Tokyo to present pieces by Heinrich Schutz and J.S. Bach.

The choruses, from Japan and Germany, specialize in music composed by German composer Schutz (1585-1672).

The two choruses -- Heinrich-Schutz Chor from Heilbronn and its Tokyo counterpart, also named after the composer -- will sing Der 8. Psalm aus Psalmen Davids 1619 by Schutz and Johannes Passion by Bach at Nihon University Casals Hall at 6 p.m. on April 10.

Michael Bottcher from Heilbronn will conduct Johannes Passion.

The Evangelist and Arie will be played by Zeger Vandersteene, Jesus by Joji Obara, and Pilatus, Petrus and Arie by Taro Tanno, soprano Momoko Tanno and alto Yoko Nagashima.

Violinist Yoko Seto will serve as concert master for the Ubiquitous Bach orchestra and other musicians.

Tickets are 5,000 yen and 4,000 yen (3,000 yen for students) from Kikuta Music Office at (03) 5226-9075 or (03) 5226-9016 (fax).

Casals Hall is a 5-minute walk from Ochanomizu Station toward Kanda Surugadai intersection (on the left side).
