Das Neue Orchester – Christoph Spering director – Thomas E. Bauer baritone
Cantata "Ich will den Kreuzstab gerne tragen", BWV 56 Johann Sebastian Bach
Ouverture (Orchestersuite Nr. 1, BWV 1066) Johann Sebastian Bach
Cantata "Ich habe genug", BWV 82 Johann Sebastian Bach
Should we only see in Johann-Sebastian Bach a learned composer who exclusively used his pen to bring us works of a dense contrapuntal fabric? Listen to the cantatas “Ich habe genug” and Ich will den Kreuzstab gerne tragen and you’ll get a taste of the composer’s melodic and intensely dramatic genius. Listen to the Orchestral Suite n° 1 and you’ll savour the cleverly elaborated orchestration. The baritone Thomas E. Bauer, the subject of a “portrait” this season at BOZAR, joins forces with Christoph Spering’s Das Neue Orchester, to offer you a lively yet touching interpretation of this astoundingly beautiful music.
