So bist du doch mein Leben

On Easter Monday the German baroque music ensemble La Dolcezza guides their audience on the path through earthly life to the resurrection. From the Passion and Easter cantatas of the north German baroque master Dietrich Buxtehude, Hanna Zumsande sings songs of praise to the Lord, accompanied by violins, viola da gamba, lute, harpsichord, and organ. The soprano’s worship of God creates a baroque musical temple whose columns are canons from “The Musical Sacrifice” of Johann Sebastian Bach. The path from earthly being to the Kingdom of God passes through a portal founded in the musical architecture of the “Guardian Angel” passacaglia by Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber and the cantata-chaconne “Herr, wenn ich nur dich habe” by Buxtehude.  

Following the concert, the association Verein der Freunde der Kunstmeile Krems invites to the traditional reception with wine and bread.
