The French - German Choir of Toulouse proudly presents: a musical journey to the most beautiful Church Cantatas written by Johann Sebastian Bach!

At the time of their creation, the Cantatas were meant to be performed by a small baroque orchestra, a choir and, sometimes, soloists.
For this concert, however, you will witness a different, quite original approach: the choir, singing extracts of 6 cantatas plus an entire one, will be accompanied by two world class piano players:

A little bit of history: as a "contract composer" in Leipzig, Bach had to churn out a Cantata *once a week* for the Sunday church service. Despite the rush, each and every one of them is marvellous achievement of THE musical genius.
