Bachs h-Moll-Messe

Under the Skin

Johann Sebastian Bach's B minor Mass revolves around subjects that penetrate to the innermost depths of the soul: solitude and despair, joy and rapture. Music that gets under one's skin. With Bach's last great vocal work, which goes well beyond the scope of church liturgy, Thomas Hengelbrock and his Balthasar Neumann ensembles embark on a journey to the existential questions of life. The performance benefits from their unique close interweaving of vocals and instrumental sound: the utmost fusion of voice and music to bring the audience a little bit closer to heaven.
