J.S. Bach ‘The Wedding Cantata’ & Other Great Soprano Cantatas

Armonico Consort & Gillian Keith: 16/04/2018

Bach was a prolific writer of cantatas, over 200 of which survive today. Among these he wrote nine very special ones for solo soprano – each one is a masterpiece of harmony, form and invention. International soprano Gillian Keith joins Armonico Consort in a sublime evening of baroque brilliance.

The concert features one of the best-loved church cantatas ‘Ich habe genug’ (I am content) as well as two which were written for weddings, including the famous ‘Wedding Cantata’.

In ‘Ich habe genug’ this very lightness of texture engenders real clarity, helped with a generally impressive on-to-a-part ensemble.
