Jordi Savall & Le Concert des NationsChristmas Oratory by Bach (I)
La Capella Reial de Catalunya
Le Concert des Nations
Jordi Savall, conductor
Christmas Oratory, BWV 248 (I)
-Jauchzet, frohlocket, auf, preiset die Tage
-Und es waren Hirten in derselben Gegend
-Herrscher des Himmels, erhöre das Lallen
Peerless viola da gamba player and orchestra conductor, recognised on the best international stages, Jordi Savall has been invited by the Palau de la Música Catalana to perform emblematic works of the repertoire. Thus, in recent years he has presented here the Bach St. Matthew Passion, Handel’s Messiah and the last three Mozart Symphonies. Now it is time for the Johann Sebastian Bach Christmas Oratorio, a compendium of six cantatas which commemorate the various festivals between Christmas and Epiphany.
This is bright, introspective, spiritual and exuberant music that enters into our lives with an unequaled freshness. A true musical miracle.
