Next live concert Ensemble L’Harmonie des Saisons – I WANT TO DREAM OF HEAVEN will be on 04 November 2021 at 14h00

The body of work which comprises Bach’s two hundred sacred cantatas is inexhaustibly rich. The arias traverse the gamut of vocal expression with equal conviction, from the purest joy to the deepest pain. They may be accompanied by a continuo group, by one or two instruments which mirror the voice or an entire orchestra. A common symbolism of the time – though subject to interpretation – dictates that the tenor lends his voice to the sinner, who is at once overwhelmed by his faults and driven by hope. The arias on the program bear witness thus: “Have Mercy on Me!”, “The Blood that Erases my Fault”, “I Trust His Grace” or “I want to Dream of Heaven…”
