BachWerkVocal IV was a complete success
The last concert of BachWerkVocal before the short summer break filled the Christuskirche in Salzburg with an excited audience. Karl Harb of the newspaper Salzburger Nachrichten was among them and wrote the above critic. Since the article is in English, here are some of his key statements:
Gordon Safari is not looking to create a musicphilologic encyclopaedia of kantatas, but lively, fresh music-making full of variety.
The solistic contributions of the Violin (in the a-Moll-Concert, BWV 1041), Cello (with marvelous agility) or Oboes provided many musical delicacies.
“whistling artist” Mechthild Kerz whistled the first part of the violin concert so enchantingly, even Loriots sketch-example ought to go green with envy.
It has been a great final concert to our first season! After a short break, BachWerkVocal will continue its line of concerts in autumn. The next dates will of course be announced on this website.
