  3. Bach – The Benefactor

The Bach family spent their lives in service. After four generations of practicing musicians, J.S. Bach was no different. He was a passionate educator, pedagogue, school master and mentor to his own many children and those of the Thomasschule of which he was Cantor. With a strong social conscience, he composed music to enrich, instruct and inspire the lives of all.

Bach – The Benefactor presents a program featuring Bach’s cantata ‘Brich dem Hungrigen dein Brot’, dubbed the ‘refugee cantata’, thought to have been based on the welcomed arrival into Germany of Protestant refugees banished from Salzburg, and his Harpsichord Concerto in E arranged for violin in a clever adaptation, used in his career as a tool for teaching his students.

Rounding out the concert is Bach’s famous cantata ‘Herz und Mund und Tat und Leben’ BWV 147, which perfectly encapsulates Bach’s desire that our hearts, mouths, deeds and lives be in service to humanity and to God.
