Easter Oratorio

April 24, 2014

BELOW, the Monteverdi Choir and the English Baroque Soloists, under the direction of Sir John Eliot Gardiner, sing Bach’s Easter Oratorio, BWV 249, at the 2013 BBC Proms.

Sir John Eliot’s comments to Suzy Klein that Bach’s “incredibly natural and intuitive sense of balance and proportion” and “attractive sense of buoyancy – rhythmic buoyancy – and elasticity, so that so much of his music is dance related” is why Bach’s music was neither for his time, nor for ours, but for all time.
