‘Tis Bach Festival season in Montreal. Ensemble Caprice plays Wednesday evening’s concert: join us!
[From the Montreal Bach Festival website:]
J.S. Bach on a Grand Scale
Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750)
Orchestral suite no 3 for three trumpets, timpani, two oboes, strings and basso continuo in D major, BWV 1068
Cantata Tritt auf die Glaubensbahn for soprano, bass, recorder, oboe, viola d’amore, viola da gamba and basso continuo, BWV 152
Matthias Maute, conductor
Agnes Zsigovics, soprano
Dion Mazerolle, baritone
Two musical worlds come together in this perfect pairing of an intimate church Cantata with the famous Third Suite and its well-known Air. Two lovely works in which Bach’s unequalled mastery shines through.
