DPA’s Abraham Releases Third CD to Positive Reviews

Johann Sebastian Bach: Motets, the third commercial recording by the Department of Performing Arts’ Dan Abraham hits stores, October 27, to favorable reviews.

Days before they were recorded in studio, the motets were performed by a 16-voice Bach Sinfonia in concert, and the Washington Post called the performance a “triumph.” The reviewer praised Abraham for his thorough research of all aspects of the motets and his sensitive direction of the Bach Sinfonia, a group of early music specialists and period instruments.

Abraham has served as director of choral activities at AU since 1999.
