Cantatas Cycle (BWV 78 & 99)

Museu de la Música (Sala Teclats) - 8.00 P.M.

We often come across passages of great instrumental virtuosity in Bach’s cantatas. For example, in August and September of 1724 he consecutively composed various cantatas in which the flute’s role is quite notable and of exceptional difficulty. The foremost hypothesis in this respect is that the famous French flautist Pierre-Gabriel Buffardin was visiting Leipzig at that time and Bach took the opportunity to dedicate some cantatas to him.

This concert is held in collaboration with the Korkyra Baroque Festival of Croatia, where we are also presenting this programme. The performance will comprise the cantatas BWV 78 Jesu, der du meine Seele and BWV 99 Was Gott tut, das ist wohlgetan – two beautiful works, both composed in September of 1724, just one week apart from each other.
