AAM: Sacred Cantatas: Bach & the Divine
Wednesday 15 January 2020
West Road Concert Hall, Cambridge
Baritone Benjamin Appl, director Masato Suzuki and the Academy of Ancient Music create an evening that’s both a musical self-portrait of and a deeply moving homage to this most timeless of all composers, Johann Sebastian Bach.
Tickets are not on sale for this event yet.
Appl is already one of the most exciting lieder-singers of his generation, but here he gets back to Bach in a very personal recital that’s just as thoughtful and intimate as any lieder performance. Tonight’s programme ranges from extracts from the iconic St Matthew Passion to some of Bach’s least known but loveliest cantatas, with instrumental interludes featuring the stunning oboe of the Academy of Ancient Music’s new principal, Leo Duarte. Masato Suzuki directs the orchestra from the harpsichord in a concert of baroque treasures that is sure to delight.
