As we head into one of the most sacred times of the year for people of faith, we share with you one of the most gripping moments of our Bach Around The Clock celebration from last month: The gorgeous aria Ich traue seine Gnaden, (“I trust His grace, which protects me from all harm, from all evil.”), from Bach’s Cantata No. 97.
This performances features mesmerizing interplay between tenor solo Brian Thorsett and violinist (and Heifetz Artistic Director) Nicholas Kitchen, the continuo accompaniment provided by organist Florence Jowers and cellist Yeesun Kim. Paul Weber conducts. Enjoy – and don’t forget to visit our Video Of The Week page to subscribe and view past episodes!
