Bach, Handel and Hercules

Sunday, October 25, 2020, 2:30 AM - 7:00 AM

The iconic strongman Hercules earned his place in the pantheon not through conquests but rather for his wisdom and honor. A pillar of mythology since Antiquity, Hercules faces a familiar dilemma, one that found significant resonance in Bach and Handel’s day, when ancient stories were a principal source of moral instruction. Both composers treat this subject with multiple soloists, choir, and colorful orchestrations, though they depict Hercules’ temptation and ultimate embrace of virtue in their own unique manner.

• J. S. Bach, Hercules at the Crossroads, BWV 213
