Easter Day celebrations at St. Thomas Church in Leipzig were grand and glorious affairs. Bach created a work that brings the characters of Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, Peter, and John to the liturgical stage with no expenses spared in its lavish orchestration that includes the brilliance of trumpets and timpani, and the sweet strains of pastoral recorders. One of Bach's earliest cantatas is paired with the quintessentially noble "A Mighty Fortress."
About the Ticket Supplier: American Bach Soloists
Named "the best American specialists in early music" by The Washington Post, the American Bach Soloists (ABS) was founded in 1989 with the mission of introducing contemporary audiences to the cantatas of Johann Sebastian Bach through historically informed performances. Under the leadership of cofounder and music director Jeffrey Thomas--named "a superstar among oratorio tenors" by The Wall Street Journal--the ensemble has achieved its vision of assembling the world's finest vocalists and period-instrument performers to bring this brilliant music to life.
