Bach in Baltimore kicks off its 35th Anniversary Season with a concert featuring two musical forms that define Baroque Period Music. The concert opens with Bach’s Orchestral Suite No. 1 in C major, a masterwork in Baroque counterpoint, a technique that uses multiple melodies to play simultaneously, creating contrast, highlight, and interplay. Bach excelled at counterpoint, one of the many reasons his music stands the test of time. A Baroque cantata will close the concert. Bach in Baltimore is one of the only music ensembles that regularly performs Bach's cantatas. Cantata 3: Ach Gott, wie manches Herzeleid ("Oh God, how much heartache") explores the concept of suffering and how we deal with it. Maestro Dimmock chose Cantata 3 to open the season in solidarity with the people of Ukraine who have suffered so much recently.
