DWFC 12: Bachfestival - Best of Bach Cantatas, 12/18/2023

From DW - Deutsche Welle | Part of the Deutsche Welle Festival Concerts series | 01:57:58

Camerata-komplett_web_small Stormy seas, stinky sheep, celebratory trumpet calls and a dying man's wavering emotions – the cantatas that Johann Sebastian Bach composed during his first year in Leipzig (1723-1724) really have it all! They're also some of his finest and most beloved works in the genre. In this episode from the 2023 Bach Festival, we hear the conductors and renowned early music practitioners Ton Koopman and Philippe Herreweghe present their favorite cantatas from Bach's first year as Thomaskantor, or music director of St. Thomas Choir, an extremely prolific moment in the Baroque composer's life.
