Singing Through Time and Space

The Music:
In this cantata of longing, Bach deploys an array of instruments including the bassoon and the voice to articulate deep emotion, anguish, suffering, loss and glimpses of illusory joy.

The Science:
Using modern vibrato mapping techniques and the voices of the OAE’s Rising Stars, Dr Edward Breen demonstrates how singers have adapted their voices and techniques throughout history to keep pace with not only the evolution of orchestral instruments but with the expansion of the concert hall as well.

The OAE plays on period instruments aiming to recreate the sounds and styles of performance that would have been familiar to composers in their own time.
