Bach: The Luminous Cantor

In collaboration with Arte Musica

Guest conductor : Mathieu Lussier, Artistic Director, Bassoon

As part of the complete Bach cantata series produced by Arte Musica at Bourgie Hall, Arion presents four wonderful cantatas that aptly illustrate the cantor’s sublime musical science and sensitivity. Trumpet, horns, oboes, violin, and strings join in turn with a quartet of voices to express the transition from fear to hope, from night to light.

Concert program

Johann Sebastian Bach 
Cantatas BWV 60, BWV 83, BWV 86, BWV 148
