A musical encounter with the Bach family

The vocal ensemble CantAurora under the direction of Peter Appenzeller sings together with a solo vocal quartet a pre-Christmas program with works by the Bach family. The focus is on two motets by Johann Sebastian Bach.

Johann Sebastian Bach is probably the most famous musician of his time. Among other things, the two well-known motets "Jesus, my joy" and "Sing a new song to the Lord" will be performed. Both works belong to the pearls of choral literature and are thematically highly topical in our time.

Musical family
But Johann Sebastian was by no means the only musical Bach. Two chorale motets are sung from the rich work of his father-in-law Johann Michael, and his great-uncle Johann will describe the work ? Our life is a shadow? sound.

Playing with the double choirs
While in one work the solo voices merge with the ensemble, in another piece they are deliberately juxtaposed with the main choir until the two choirs ? the longer the work lasts? become one. With the playing of the two choirs, a varied and entertaining program is created.

Solo parts
Deborah Fogal, soprano / Silvia Matile-Eggenberger, soprano / Lisa May, alto / Zacharie Fogal, tenor / Grégoire May, bass

The programme is rounded off with three Christmas movements from the «Magnificat» by Johann Sebastian Bach.
