About the Concert

With kettledrums and trumpets - what we say today when something happens with a lot of fuss and fanfare 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. The three pure choral pieces, on the other hand, offer true spherical sounds. In contrast to the 'vertical', structured music of Bach, the works of Liszt, Mahler and Çriks Eðenvalds flow through the space and spread out as sound surfaces.


Hans-Christoph Rademann, the Dresdner Kammerchor and excellent soloists create this concert, which will certainly be one of the highlights of the Easter season.
