All About Bach Cantatas

Bach’s cantatas served a dual purpose: on the one hand, each cantata was integrated into the liturgical cycle; on the other, they contributed to the pious edification of the community. Bach conferred on his chorales the task of aligning these two aims, which explains their musical and spiritual richness.

Friday March 29 2019 - 19:30
Duration : 1h 30

Only a small number of concertos by Bach have survived. Originally composed for the court of Anhalt-Köthen around 1720, thankfully several of them were repurposed for weekly concerts Bach organized at the Zimmermann café in Leipzig, fifteen years later. He also converted a few of them into concertos for harpsichord(s).

Since 2012, the French ensemble Alia Mens has specialized in the performance of works by Bach, particularly the cantatas from the Weimar period and concertos for several harpsichords. This concert provides an ideal opportunity to discover these fine musicians in their Montreal debut.

You can also hear Ensemble Alia Mens perform in the Complete Bach Cantatas Series on Sunday, March 31

The Arte Musica Foundation continues its complete concert presentation of the sacred cantatas of J. S. Bach, one of the world’s most universally admired composers. In keeping with the liturgical cycle, each concert features at least one cantata for the Sunday it was originally composed.

Reminder: Short rehearsals take place 45 minutes before each concert and are designed to help you sing along with the final chorale of one of the cantatas.

We welcome you to pursue the adventure with us!
