Da Camera of Houston and the Houston Chamber Choir collaborate once again, this time to trace the influences of J. S. Bach into the 19th century. Franz Liszt’s “Via Crucis,” a late work scored for two pianos and chorus, will be featured along with a cappella settings by Felix Mendelssohn commemorating the 200th anniversary of his birth.

Liszt’s “Via Crucis” is not done all that often, but I can tell you that it’s very, very cool.  The Mendelssohn will be an exciting contrast and complement to the Liszt and will be a lovely way to spend a Saturday evening.
