Ricercar Consort
Thuringian cantatas BWV 131, 155, 165, and 199

Sometimes Bach’s cantatas from his early years in Thuringia are rather overshadowed by their more famous Leipzig sisters – this is unjustified as this programme in Weimar by the Ricercar Consort demonstrates. The early Mühlhausen Cantata 131 is one of Bach’s earliest extant works and is also one of his most arresting. The three Weimar cantatas also impress with their beauty and demonstrate that Bach was able to achieve mastery even in his early years. Philippe Pierlot and the Ricercar Consort return to Weimar as profoundly knowledgeable experts to interpret this incomparable music. And even if they can no longer play in the original Castle of Heaven, the Weimar City Church with its famous Cranach altarpiece provides an equally illustrious setting.
