Bach’s cantatas are so sublime that one famous admirer called them “the fifth gospel” – music sent straight from heaven. Now, Music of the Baroque, Chicago’s premier period chorus and orchestra, performs perhaps the three best cantatas of the 200-some Bach composed while working as a church musician in Leipzig. Discover what the Tribune meant when it gushed that “Few combinations are as attractive to Chicago audiences as Johann Sebastian Bach, Nicholas Kraemer, and Music of the Baroque” when maestro Kraemer once again mounts the podium for all-Bach program at Harris Theater for Music and Dance.
