Die Fledermaus Overture
Cantata BWV 82: ‘Ich Habe Genug’
The contrast between the lightness and humour of Johann Strauss’ music and the devotional depth of Bach’s cantata provides an ideal foil to the centrepiece of the final concert of the series, Tchaikovsky’s mighty 5th Symphony. This is a work that is completely engrossing in a way that only the great symphonic works can be. It takes the listener on a journey that encompasses the full gamut of human emotion.
