Under the direction of Thomaskantor Gotthold Schwarz, three cantatas by Johann Sebastian Bach resound in the Thomaskirche in Leipzig. The picture was taken at the end of May 2020. The video was broadcast worldwide as an opening concert at the Bach Marathon 2020 via the channels of the Leipzig Bach Festival. It thus replaces the opening concert of the Leipzig Bach Festival, which was canceled this year due to Covid-19 conditions. There, the Thomanerchor would have performed the Cantata 29 for the opening in the usual chorus. Now the cantata sounded in the video stream with a smaller and soloist ensemble. Some male voices of the St. Thomas choir and other guests make up the choir, which is modeled on Johann Sebastian Bach with three to four singers per voice. The Saxon Baroque Orchestra performs as a soloist. With cantata 11, the Ascension Oratorio, and cantata 117, Sei Lob und Ehr dem höchsten Gut, Thomaskantor Gotthold Schwarz has chosen two more sonorous cantatas. The small line-up and the outstanding soloists shine with an enormous joy in making music, which make this recording a highlight of the Bach interpretation. In addition to a concert broadcast on Deutschlandfunk Kultur, the recordings made in the empty St. Thomas Church can also be seen and heard in the online services of the St. Thomas Church in Leipzig.
