C. P. E. Bach: “The last sufferings of the saviour”

Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach
“The last sufferings of the saviour” – passion cantata, Wq 233
Philharmonie Essen ·

Hartmut Haenchen has always been familiar with the art of chorals and oratorios – from his time in the boys’-choir in Dresden. However, early on he decided to become a conductor, which eventually lead him to all important musical centres of the world. After some sensational interpretations of Wagner, he devoted himself to the cyclic performances of all sinfonias by Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach. With the award-winning chamber choir and chamber orchestra, which was named after the second Bach son, Haenchen will perform the passion cantata “Die letzten Leiden des Erlösers” (The last sufferings of the saviour).
