There can be few more profoundly moving solo cantatas in all Bach’s oeuvre than Cantata 82, Ich habe genug. From the soft resignation of the opening obbligato aria, to the lilting quiet of Schlummert ein at its centre, we find ourselves enveloped in a world of deep tranquility and peace.
This astonishing work forms the centrepiece of this all-Bach programme, which pairs two of his finest church cantatas with two concertos, together showcasing the extraordinary virtuosity of Dunedin Consort’s world-renowned singers and instrumentalists.
