John Eliot Gardiner once said of Johann Sebastian Bach that "The range of his art, his imagination, and his creative response to different stimuli, is apparently endless." The works of this seminal figure of the Baroque are at the heart of the conductor's stylistically extremely diverse repertoire and in this live broadcast Gardiner performs the first three cantatas of the Christmas Oratorio with the ensembles he founded and spearheaded the modern revolution in Bach performance – the Monteverdi Choir and the English Baroque Soloists. Although nearly 300 years have now passed since its premiere, Bach's work remains irresistible in its energy and inspiration.
