Please note: Jos van Veldhoven replaces Nathalie Stutzmann
Nathalie Stutzmann is unfortunately not feeling well and it is with deep regret that she is unable to conduct and sing this concert. She is being replaced by conductor Jos van Veldhoven and mezzo soprano Sophie Harmsen.
In this concert you will hear a solo cantata, a cantata aria and a sinfonia. Bach composed this music in the first years that he was a cantor in Leipzig. In addition, the early Bach of pure instrumental music with the famous Air from his Orchestral Suite No. 3. The connecting thread in the texts of the cantatas is the comforting reconciliation with death. The death with which Bach had already so deeply been introduced with the death of his children.
