Dynamic young ensemble Sestina explore themes of life and death through works of breathtaking power and humanity by JS Bach and his contemporaries..
J.S. Bach – Sarabande and Chaconne (with choral interpolations)
J.S. Bach – Cantata No. 4 Christ lagin Todes Banden
J.C. Bach – Es ist nun aus (Sterb Aria)
J.C. Bach – Meine Freundin du bistschön.
Sestina, a group fast developing a reputation for classy, intelligent programming of Baroque music, idiomatically sung and expertly accompanied on instruments of the period.
