Bach's Cantatas as he performed them
The fourthconcert in La Follia's all-Bach concert season features 3 Bach cantatas, performed in the manner we now know he typically performed them: using minimal orchestra and one-on-a-part chorus. The resulting transparency and flexibility is astonishing.
Featured is the famous solo cantata "Ich habe genug" with Gil Zilkha, bass. James Andrewes, frequent director for the Bach Cantata Project in Bloomington, Indiana, leads La Follia. Sarah Davol and Sarah Weiner perform on oboes d'amore. Marcus McGuff performs on Baroque flute.
Whit Martin-Whitaker with KMFA Classical 89.5 will present a free pre-concert lecture on Bach and the music to be performed starting 20 minutes before curtain.
Süßer Trost, mein Jesus kömmt, BWV 151
Ich habe genug, BWV 82
Liebster Gott, wenn werd ich sterben?, BWV 8
