The Bach Project
about the program
The Bach Project re-imagines Cantata 97: In Allen Meinen Taten of Johann Sebastian Bach for four singers, cello, violin, keyboard and vibraphone. This innovative program offers a space of meditation on questions and responses to major themes at work in Bach's worldview, as well as contemporary society: doubt and faith, hatred and tolerance, injustice and peace.
The cantata is interrupted with material that is contrapuntal to Bach's statements of faith -- including poetry and dramatic text from Kaveh Akbar, Adam Zagajewski, Lillian Hellman, and Rainer Maria Rilke and musical material such as Haitian folk songs, gospel music, Arvo Pärt, Nirvana and original compositions.
Created collectively by the ensemble to celebrate and challenge our shared humanity, The Bach Project is a kaleidoscopic meditation on what it is to be human.
