The Great Cantatas of Bach and Telemann
Friday 17 September 2021
Bach’s sublime cantatas Actus Tragicus and Himmelskönig, sei willkommen are well-known to music lovers. And tonight’s concert gives the audience a rare chance to hear Telemann’s great masterpiece Du Aber, Daniel, Gehe Hin, a work with sumptuous instrumentation and great emotional depth.

Martin Feinstein Director
“The Feinstein Ensemble and London Bach Singers showed, triumphantly, the validity of small-scale Bach. Martin Feinstein, directing from the flute, drew a rich, at times remarkable, range of colours and timbres from his 16 period instrument players.”
