Baroque Cantatas with Anna Prohaska, Florian Boesch and Il Pomo dʼOro

Contemplation, edification and glorification of God – cantatas fulfilled important functions in Protestant church music during the Baroque period. And they gave composers of that time, particularly Leipzig’s St. Thomas Kantor, Johann Sebastian Bach, the opportunity to express human emotions such as sorrow, joy, doubt or rapture powerfully in music. During this concert, soprano Anna Prohaska, baritone Florian Boesch and the ensemble Il Pomo d’Oro demonstrate the richness of this genre with cantatas by Bach and Buxtehude.
