About the Concert

With kettledrums and trumpets - what we say today when something happens with a lot of fuss and bluster was an unmistakable signal in the music of the Baroque: This is about royal power! Bach's cantata "Preise Dein Glücke, gesegnetes Sachsen" is the best example of this, as he composed it to mark the victory of August III against the Polish king. His suite for orchestra, however, is quite different. It is rather what we would call dance music today, dance music of the Baroque, of course. Hardly any classical piece of music is as popular as the second movement from it, the famous "Air". Whether it's a wedding, a funeral or a romantic dinner for two: the Air sets the right mood - and yet is actually so much more than just maudlin background music.
Hans-Christoph Rademann, the Dresdner Kammerchor and excellent soloists perform this concert, which is sure to be one of the highlights of the Easter season.
