The art of the cantabile playing together takes centre stage in this Bach programme. The homage to the most beautiful sacred cantatas by J. S. Bach is played without singers, but therefore with many instrumental voices. Bachs works provide a touching insight into the human soul. The manifold instrumental colours of the Lautten Compagney – from the theorbo to the oboe da caccia – give meaningful expression to it. With fresh zeal the Berlin baroque specialists adopt a creative practice of a time which did not know about rigid borders between sacred and secular music.
