Baroque concert – La Chapelle des Minimes
NEW VENUE!!! Opening the first concert in our new home is one of the very first cantatas to blossom from the 22-year-old Bach. Almost two centuries later, its final movement would inspire the end of Brahms¹s last symphony. We follow with a dramatic cantata from Bach¹s maturity, plus a short look at old and new treatments of one of his favourite chorales.
“The cantatas of the Minimes” have become a Brussels institution, already since 36 years. Every fourth Sunday of the month, we present the cantatas of J. S. Bach as the Cantor of Leipzig had done in his time. Free admission at 17.00 for a concert of about 45 minutes, as of now in the very beautiful church of Saint-Jacques-sur-Coudenberg where the faithful audience will regularly come for a great spiritual and cultural moment.
