Ensemble Caprice

J.S. Bach: Cantatas with the colours of the winds

Ensemble Caprice is delighted to once again be a part of Arte Musica Foundation’s epic undertaking of presenting the complete cycle of Bach cantatas. This programme will feature the cantatas BWV 25, 46, 23, and 127. The Cantor of Leipzig was a master at painting orchestral colours, and this performance will provide an incomparable instrumental bouquet: recorders, trombones, trumpet, slide horn, oboe, oboe d’amore and strings all make for a sumptuous musical feast!
