About the Event

As well as nurturing the younger generation of Bachs, Johann Sebastian was a committed advocate of the finest music by older members of his extended family. This concert places two of his cantatas in the context of masterpieces by his first cousin once removed, Johann Christoph Bach – described as the ‘profound composer’ in Bach’s obituary – whose works are arguably the most distinguished in Sebastian’s collection of family music, known as the Altbachisches Archiv.

Performed on historical instruments.
