What could a group of university students do in 1725 to celebrate the name-day of one of their teachers? Go to Johann Sebastian Bach and commission from him a Cantata in his name, obviously! And it is exactly from this secular Cantata (one of the few written by Bach) that we want to begin trying to understand a bit better this familiar yet “feared” writer. A composer who every musician gets to know as a child, yet rarely becomes one that you take for granted.
This is what we want to attempt, along with the precious help of the oboist, director and musicologist Alfredo Bernardini, and the English ensemble “Solomon’s Knot,” which, for the occasion, will be an integral part of the Spira Mirabilis project performing the challenging vocal parts.
