Staffan Liljas; bass & baroque ensemble – Bacho Continuo - The Power of Darkness

Tuesday 21 March 2023 19:00 - 20:00 Musikaliska

Early Music Day is as every year celebrated on the 21 March, the birthday of J. S. Bach. In the programme's three solo cantatas, the Master, also known as the Fifth Evangelist, composed some of the most beautiful pieces written for bass voice - a divine lament is united with consolation. Staffan Liljas, one of Sweden's most distinguished Baroque bass singers, enchants with his warm, dark sound, accompanied by hand-picked Swedish musicians. Deeply recommended!


J S Bach:

"Ich will den Kreuzstab gerne tragen" BWV 56

"Der Friede sei mit dir" BWV 158

"Ich habe genug" BWV 82
