Bach also had many connections with Berlin, e. g. to the Margrave Christian Ludwig of Brandenburg, to whom he dedicated six ambitious concertos now knows as as the »Brandenburg Concertos«. The touching wedding cantata »O holder Tag, erwünschte Zeit« (O Propitious Day, Desired Time) was also performed in Berlin on the occasion of the wedding of Bach’s friend, the privy councillor and physician Georg Ernst Stahl.
