John V. Sinclair, conductor | Members of the Bach Festival Orchestra
John Grau, tenor
J. S. BACH
Brandenburg Concerto No. 5, BWV 1050
Cantata “Ich armer Mensch, ich Sudenknecht,” BWV 55
Pablo Casals described Bach as “the supreme genius of music.” Through three succinct works we will investigate whether shy Casals’ assessment rings true through a Brandenburg concerto, considered one of Bach’s most important secular works, and the cantata form where Bach’s creative genius thrived.
This concert is part of Insights & Sounds, a new series that focuses on individual composers and genres and provides audiences with concise concerts in which great music is performed and discussed.
