Bach and the Tenor

In the cantatas we can see the whole of Bach. There are innumerable combinations that can be made with their numbers to obtain similar results: a unique ability to combine architecture and form with the most emotional and moving depth. In this concert, the OBS Soloists have chosen tenor arias with obbligati instruments, that is, those in which there is an instrument acting as the second soloist, sometimes creating duets of an almost operatic nature. The transverse flute, the oboe d’amore, the violin, the viola da gamba and the cello are the instruments chosen on this occasion.
