Next to the big choral works like the Mass in B minor or the St. John’s and St. Matthew’s Passions as well as his a-cappella motets, Johann Sebastian Bach’s over 200 preserved cantatas represent the corpus of his sacred choral and orchestral music. Written in an almost weekly cycle for every Sunday of the Christian year, their musical diversity and beauty is astounding. Among the cantatas, three are written for solo-bass, to which Michael Volle regularly lends his warm yet powerful baritone voice in concerts all around Europe. In late November / early December, he will record them at the Christuskirche Berlin, together with the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin, one of the world’s leading orchestras specialized in historic performance.

Cantata „Ich habe genug“, BWV 82
