Bach Easter Sunday
Bach - Orchestral Suite No 2 in B minor
Bach - Cantata No 4 'Christ lag in Todesbanden'
Bach - Cantata No 182 'Himmelskönig sei willkommen
Spend Easter Sunday with the greatest ever composer of sacred music. Bach's church cantatas are full of unforgettable vocal music, in both solo arias and thrilling choruses. Here two of his very finest cantatas are paired with his sparkling B minor suite for flute and strings played by the wonderful Katy Bircher. Whenever John Butt and the Dunedin Consort perform Bach the audience can expect something really special.
The Dunedin Consort are John Butt (director), Rachel Redmond (soprano), Jonathan Manson (cello) and Peter Whelan (bassoon). 'One of the finest available Bach performances’ (The Independent) 'Butt and his forces yield a dramatic, exactingly nuanced, profoundly considered reading, compelling in its integrity and text-driven immediacy’ (BBC Music Magazine).
