‘Benjamin Appl & Ensemble Masques’

Intimate Bach

Benjamin Appl probably needs no introduction: the baritone's awards cabinet is gradually filling up, and the Financial Times recently hailed him as 'the most promising of today's up-and-coming song recitalists'. Appl usually creates a furore for his classical-romantic work, but here he returns to an old love: the song repertoire of Johann Sebastian Bach. Together with Ensemble Masques, under the musical direction of Olivier Fortin, he will perform a varied selection of Bach's more intimate works: from excerpts from the iconic St Matthew Passion to some of his lesser-known but beautiful cantatas.
