Concert with

Bach festival at Advent

Not quite the Christmas Oratorio, but Bach all the same. Great Bach, noble Bach, representative Bach. Also the master of intimate tones, of musically suggestive contemplation. For his RSB debut, Rinaldo Allesandrini has ingeniously combined two Brandenburg Concertos with sinfonias and cantatas. The idea could well have been Bach’s own. The Norwegian Siri Karoline Thornhill lends her bell-bright soprano voice to two famous solo cantatas by Johann Sebastian Bach, supported by none other than Reinhold Friedrich on solo trumpet.
Does a joyful dance about death contradict the Christmas spirit? Listen and decide for yourself!
