From Johann Christoph (born 1642) to Wilhelm Friedrich Ernst (who died in 1845), the Bach family was the greatest of all musical dynasties. Johann Christoph had a reputation equalled only by that of JS Bach himself, who revered him enormously. His masterpiece ‘Ach, dass ich Wassers gnug hätte’, with its dark scoring, sits as an equal alongside JS Bach’s own great alto cantata ‘Widerstehe doch der Sünde’.

Mezzo-soprano Clare Wilkinson joins The Feinstein Ensemble to give her acclaimed readings of these two wonderful works. Also on the programme are groundbreaking and sublime orchestral pieces by JS Bach’s most talented sons, Carl Philipp Emanuel and Wilhelm Friedemann.
