« Ich hatte viel Bekümmernis » (BWV 21), our season¹s last cantata, is one of Bach¹s most famous works, and surely also one of his own favourites: he reprised it several times over his lifetime, notably after the premature death of his first wife Maria Barbara, each time with additions and improvements.  It is truly exceptional in its breadth of expression, from the deepest and most intimate moments to its grandiose heights. Trumpets and timpani join us to close the season with éclat!
