Organ is a perfect musical instrument to express the cosmic grandeur of Bach’s compositions. But this music also contains philosophical meditations of the human person. Now cello is a symbol of the human voice crying to the Lord from the bottom of the human heart.
The concert features a fantasia on the famous theme of the chorale “Out of the Depths I Cry to You” and other masterpieces of the great German composer.
