BACH FACTORY on BWV 41 "Jesu, nun sei gepreiset"

The “Bach Factory” is a video series by the J.S. Bach-Stiftung St. Gallen that gives you interesting insights into Bach’s cantatas – including exclusive excerpts from their live performance.

Johann Sebastian Bach wrote his festive cantata BWV 41 “Jesu, nun sei gepreiset” as a tribute to the old and the new year. The piece is a musical look back at Bach’s chorale year of 1724/25 in Leipzig, but it also awakens hopeful sentiments for the future. In this episode of Bach Factory, Rudolf Lutz and Xoán Castiñeira explore the cantata’s musical details and uncover its secrets.

The concert recording, introductory workshop and reflective lecture (in German) are available at Bachipedia.
