place: take notice

Sunday 6 February 2022, 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Reminding ourselves to ‘take notice’ strengthens and broadens awareness. In Cantata 35, we are reminded to ‘take notice’ as the alto soloist, stupefied, sings, “I am amazed, for all one sees must cause us astonishment!” We watch in amazement as the harpsichord soloist in Bach’s Fifth Brandenburg Concerto delivers a coruscating cadenza of colossal power and chromatic intensity. Was it designed for Bach to play himself? Who else could play it?

Couperin, L’art de toucher le clavecin
Brandenburg Concerto No. 5, BWV 1050
Geist und Seele wird verwirret (Spirit and soul become bewildered), BWV 35
