For those who love the jubilant instrumental works of Bach, there is the lesser known reconstructed Triple Violin Concerto, a treat for lovers of the violin. The Choir of Bach Akademie Australia will then shine in the vigorous energetic motet for double choir, ‘Singet dem Herrn.’ To crown the Easter celebration, they will perform Bach’s brilliant Missa Brevis in A major, written in the last decade of his life. Containing only the Kyrie and Gloria, it is none the less a substantial work of genius meriting him with the title of one of the greatest composers who ever lived.
The programme: J.S. Bach: Cantata ‘Christ lag in Todesbanden’ BWV 4/ Triple Violin Concerto BWV 1064R/ Motet ‘Singet dem Herrn’ BWV 225/ Interval/ Missa Brevis in A BWV 234
