Bach um vier 

Bach at four I

Capella Augustina
Andreas Spering (conductor and moderation)

Is it right to pay taxes to the emperor? Around this loaded question posed to Jesus by the Pharisees revolves Johann Sebastian Bach’s Solo-Cantata BWV 139 for the 23rd Sunday after Trinity Sunday in the year 1724. Bach’s genius lies in, among other things, the ability to create an enthralling theological-political discourse in a musical way, using two Oboe d’amore no less, as Andreas Spering will outline in this concert. The second half of this lecture concert is not so much about taxes, but divine luster: Christ as radiant, as the true morning star, who will lead mankind on the right path.
