Bach : Motets

Cultural ,  Concert ,  Opera ,  Opera at Versailles
Franck Moreau-5
  • Bach’s Motets are exceptions in his production. They were composed in Leipzig between 1727 and 1730 for exceptional ceremonies: funeral services for prominent figures.

    Each motet is a virtuoso composition for a double choir accompanied by musical instruments, with no soloist. Because of their complex composition and their magnificence, they remained on the repertoire of Saint Thomas of Leipzig, where they enthralled Mozart when he heard them in 1789. Their success has never waned since, and the Arts Florissants offers a deep and virtuoso interpretation of these masterpieces.
