Gardiner conducts Bach: Christmas Oratorio (Parts 4-6)
The second half of Bach's Christmas Oratorio – Cantatas 4-6 – is quite unfairly less well known than the first, and contains just as rich an array of spirited choruses and memorably beautiful arias. John Eliot Gardiner is considered one leading experts on Bach and his cantatas, which he has performed in their entirety and discussed in an acclaimed book, and here he conducts his Monteverdi Choir and English Baroque Soloists in their new home, London's impressive Baroque church of St Martin-in-the-Fields. A perfect concert for the Christmas season!
