EASTER ORATORIO

A beautiful lead-in to Easter, be spellbound and transported as the Bach Akademie Australia sweep your away with the luscious sounds of Johann Sebastian Bach.

Bach Akademie Australia begins the year with an all-Bach program featuring two of his best and most beautiful cantatas written for Easter.

Of his 5 cycles of Cantatas written whist servings as Kantor for the Thomaskirche in Leipzg, BWV 42 and BWV 6, although completely contrasting in tone and mood, are some of his most heartfelt and joyful with their messages of hope and comfort for all. We then presents one of Bach’s best loved and most jubilant works, the Easter Oratorio. In this work, Bach utilises a full choir and orchestra to amplify his message of pure joy and celebration.

This very special work continues to uplift, inspire and comfort us all these many hundreds of years later.
