La Follia Austin Baroque presents "Bach's Cantatas As He Performed Them"
The fourth concert in La Follia's all-Bach season consists of three religious works for choir and orchestra composed for Lutheran Sunday services. La Follia will perform these works in the manner Bach typically performed them: using minimal orchestra and one-on-a-part chorus.
Featured is the famous solo cantata BWV 82 “Ich habe genug” with Gil Zilkha, bass. James Andrewes, frequent director for the Bach Cantata Project in Bloomington, Indiana, leads the La Follia orchestra. Other vocalists are Meredith Ruduski, soprano; Sean Lee, counter-tenor; and Jeffrey Jones-Ragona, tenor. Special guests Sarah Davol and Sarah Weiner perform on oboes d'amore, and Marcus McGuff performs on Baroque flute. Whit Martin-Whitaker from KMFA Classical 89.5 will present a free pre-concert lecture on Bach and the music to be performed beginning 20 minutes before curtain.
