The genesis of the fascinating set of two hundred extant cantatas by Johann Sebastian Bach goes back to the time when he was only eighteen and starting his first engagement in Arnstadt, Thuringia. None of his cantatas is precisely dated, but their formal characteristics point to the earliest period of his writing. For their enormous spiritual and emotional depth and the mastery of composition they rank among the most beautiful pieces of music ever written. Ensemble Inégal’s interpretation of Bach’s early cantatas will confirm the composer Max Reger’s statement that ‘Bach is the beginning and the end of all music’.
