The music of Johann Sebastian Bach never fails to inspire and uplift us, whether intended for the church or the court. ARTEK presents a program of the celebratory secular cantata BWV 208 “Was mir behagt, ist nur die muntre Jagd,” known as the Hunt Cantata, and the splendid Brandenburg Concerto no. 1, two works that display the baroque horn. The Hunt Cantata features soprano Laurie Heimes as Diana, goddess of the hunt; soprano Clara Rottsolk as Pales, goddess of the flocks; bass-baritone Peter Becker as Pan, god of rustic nature; and tenor Andrew Fuchs as the handsome young shepherd Endymion. ARTEK will also perform the birthday aria rediscovered in 2005, “Alles mit Gott und nichts ohn’ ihn,” BWV 1127, written for the birthday of Duke Wilhelm Ernst of Saxe-Weimar in 1713.
