Be transported as the Bach Akademie Australia sweeps you away with the spell-binding 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 whilst serving as Kantor for the Thomaskirche in Leipzig, 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 present 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.
