Sacred Cantatas: Bach & the Divine

Wednesday 15th January

7:30 pm

Benjamin Appl is already one of the most exciting lieder-singers of his generation, and here he gets back to Bach in a very personal recital that’s just as thoughtful and intimate as any lieder recital.

‘Bach belongs not to the past, but to the future’ said George Bernard Shaw, and it’s only in the era of modern recordings, perhaps, that we’ve been able to grasp the full scope and richness of Bach’s 200-plus cantatas. Tonight’s programme ranges from extracts from the iconic St Matthew Passion to some of Bach’s least known but loveliest cantatas.

J.S. Bach ‘Wilkommen, werther Schatz’ from Schwingt Freudig euch empor, BWV 36
J.S. Bach Sinfonia from Ich steh mit eimen Fuss in Grabe, BWV 156
J.S. Bach ‘Am Abend, da es kühle war’ from St Matthew Passion, BWV 244
J.S. Bach ‘Mache dich, mein Herze, rein’ from St Matthew Passion, BWV 244
J.S. Bach Sinfonia from Ich hatte viel Bekümmernis, BWV 21
J.S. Bach Ich habe genug, BWV 82
J.S. Bach Sinfonia from Wir müssen durch viel Trübsal, BWV146
J.S. Bach Air from Suite No 3 in D major, BWV 1068
