Play oboe, resonate cantatas!

Play oboe, resonate cantatas!

It is customary to write that it was the hand of God that guided that of John Sebastian Bach, and it is true that his works have a supernatural beauty that cannot be explained. However, it is this man who, every Sunday, repeatedly envied this miracle, the composition of a new cantata ...

Our ensemble wanted to associate the voice of its soprano, whose highs shine towards the skies, with the often heartbreaking sound of the oboe, to interpret exclusively sacred works, with the exception of concerto BWV 1053, and thus to find spirituality and Sunday fervor in the St. Thomas Church in Leipzig…
