Bach Revived

Friday 21 October 2016, 10:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Schumann worshipped Bach. He pored over the Passions and played the great man’s fugues with Clara on their honeymoon. As part of the Oxford Lieder Festival, 21 October sees several events surveying the works of Robert Schumann and the Bach revival led by Mendelssohn, supported by Schumann and influential on so many others.

The day concludes with a special evening of Bach Cantatas for the Twenty-Second Sunday after Trinity. These will be performed by the Oxford Bach Soloists with  renowned tenor James Gilchrist, together with two of Schmann’s rare works for organ performed by Robert Quinney.

Johann Sebastian Bach: Cantata 89 Was soll ich aus dir machen, Ephraim
Robert Schumann: Fugue N° 1 on BACH
Johann Sebastian Bach: Cantata 115 Mache dich, mein Geist, bereit
Robert Schumann: Fugue N° 5 on BACH
Johann Sebastian Bach: Cantata 55 Ich armer Mensch, ich Sündenknecht

Tenor: James Gilchrist
Organ: Robert Quinney
Conductor: Tom Hammond-Davies

Promoted by the Oxford Lieder Festival’s Schumann Project
