It only took a few days for the American Bach Soloists to sell out its festival production of Heinrich Biber’s Missa Salisburgensis. For the lucky few who saw it, many of them new to ABS, it was massively entertaining. SFCV went to the final rehearsal to record a few minutes of the piece and speak to Jeffrey Thomas, music and artistic director of ABS. The results are below.
