Jean-Marie Zeitouni has a fascinating proposal for this year’s Montreal Bach Festival: bring Bach and Britten — two musical universes perhaps not as diametrically opposed as one might think — into tune with one another. Together with I Musici, tenor Julian Prégardien performs some of the most beautiful arias for tenor, drawn from the German composer’s cantatas and oratorios, echoing Britten’s enchanting Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings.
