Bach is known for writing some of the greatest music ever penned, including over 200 cantatas. He never wrote an opera, but in several of his secular cantatas he came close.
O.N.E. presents two of Bach's sacred cantatas (Nos. 84 and 158) and his very secular and late "Peasant Cantata" (which celebrates food, drink, and dancing, complains about taxes, makes an unblinking reference to a roll in the hay, and otherwise toasts the new lord of the land, Carl Heinrich von Dieskau, 1742).
Soprano Sylvia D'Eramo and baritone Zachary Johnson from the Yale Opera program sing.
