  • Description:

    Bachs Oratorium zum Himmelfahrtstag entstand 1735 in Leipzig. Es entspricht vom Umfang her einer Kantate, von der Textwahl her ist es jedoch als ein oratorisches Werk einzuordnen.
    Neben den biblischen Bericht zum Himmelfahrtstag treten Chorle und freie madrigalische Dichtungen. Wie auch in anderen Werken dieses Jahrgangs (u.a. dem 'Weihnachts-Oratorium') ist eine Vorliebe Bachs fr farbige Besetzungen zu beobachten: 2 Flten, 2 Oboen, 3 Trompeten, Pauke und Streicher schaffen eine barocke Klangpracht mit ausgesprochen festlichem Charakter. Grundlage der Edition bildet der durchgesehene zuverlssige Notentext der 'Neuen Bach-Ausgabe'.

    Auf Grundlage der 'Neuen Bach-Ausgabe'
    Zweisprachiges Vorwort von Andreas Glckner (dt./engl.)

    Bach composed his oratorio for the Feast of the Ascension in Leipzig in 1735. Though this work has the duration of a cantata, the choice of text places it among the oratorios. It combines the biblical account of the Ascension with chorales and free madrigal poems.
    As in other works which were composed during this same year (e.g. the 'Christmas Oratorio'), Bach reveals a special fondness for colourful orchestration, with two flutes, two oboes, three trumpets, timpani and strings, creating a splendid Baroque sound with a strikingly festive character.
    This edition is based on the thoroughly researched musical text from the 'New Bach Edition'.

    - Lavishly scored oratorio of a festive nature
    - Based on the 'New Bach Edition'
    - Bilingual foreword by Andreas Glckner (Ger/Eng)
