Portland Baroque Orchestra: Harmony of Nations

Portland Baroque Orchestra presents Harmony of Nations.

‘‘Weapons of war and their use are something I am unable to engage with. I busy my time with notes, strings, and sounds. I work in the cause of harmony, mixing the sounds of France, Germany and Italy and attempting thus to prevent wars and to serve the cause of peace among nations and their striving for peace.’’

Georg Muffat’s words are as relevant today as when he wrote them in 1695. Here, musical styles range from his French-infused dances to Andrzej Panufnik’s unique recreation of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century musical fragments from Poland that were almost lost to the ravages of war. PBO’s season culminates with an Italianate symphony by the Ukrainian composer Maxim Berezovsky. For tickets and more information, visit pbo.org.
