Heart and mouth and deed and life
The newly founded Bach Association Chur in the Reformed Church Scuol performs three cantatas by Johann Sebastian Bach.
Bach composed the cantata BWV 6 "Bleib bei uns, denn es will abend werden" for the second day of Easter. Among other things, it deals with the walk to Emmaus. The night that falls with its darkness and the request not to remain alone is transferred to the general situation of believers.
BWV 131 "Aus der Tiefen rufe ich, Herr, zu dir" is one of Bach's oldest surviving cantatas. The text consists of Psalm 130 and a chorale from 1588. Both text sources address the plea for forgiveness of sins.
The central theme of the cantata BWV 147 "Heart and Mouth and Deed and Life" is the public confession to God and Jesus. The work is one of the popular and relatively frequently performed Bach cantatas. In the elaborate entrance choir, a solo trumpet virtuosically underlines the festive character of the piece. The two closing chorales of the first and second part "Wohl mir, dass ich Jesum habe" and "Jesus bleibet meine Freude" are framed by a triolic string melody and are among Bach's most internationally popular compositions.
The soloists Manuela Tuena, Daniela Candrian, Christoph Waltle and Mattias Müller-Arpagaus are joined ad hoc by a ripieno choir. Pieder accompanies Jörg on the organ.

The newly founded Bach Association Chur organizes annual concerts with music by J.S. Bach. If possible, local musicians will be taken into account. After the ensemble has performed several concerts with Bach cantatas with great success in recent years, concerts with three Bach cantatas in September in Chur and Scuol are also on the agenda for the first year of the association. The St. John Passion planned for this spring had to be postponed by one year.
