Their work and lives share many of the same characteristics. They started their musical training at a young age and as in Kuhnau's and Schelle's case, received training from a teacher whose position they would later overtake. Even the administrative side of their lives shared similarities; Kuhnau as well as Bach had problems with their employer and were known for their difficult character. The pieces sung at this concert were all composed for important liturgical events of the year and will bring you an evening of 'sweetness &amp; skilfulnes' (Knüpfer), 'understanding of composition' (Schelle), 'astonishing array of styles &amp; forms' (Kuhnau), finishing with Bach, whose work excels all his predecessors.</p> baroque Choral clasiscal classical Fri, 07 Nov 2008 20:21:15 +0000 1897 at
