Come to this concert to hear how the composer’s imagination was tested to its limits with two cantatas, composed for the Eighth Sunday after Trinity, on the subject of hypocrisy
BWV 212, BWV 545, BWV 40
BWV 154, BWV 656, BWV 215
BWV 103, BWV 135, BWV 104
BWV 150, BWV 81, BWV 562, BWV 193
Solo voices and the timbre of a solo oboe predominate in today’s cantatas.
Unusual texts are to the fore in this concert’s cantatas. Leichtgessinte Flattergeiste (‘Frivolous flibbertigibbets’) takes the palm for the most charming and least likely opening line in the entire repertoire
Brightness and darkness are juxtaposed in this concert, conducted by the Royal Academy of Music/Kohn Foundation Bach Prize winner Philippe Herreweghe
The final concert of the season focuses on celebratory works for Christmas and Michaelmas
