John Butt's award-winning vocal-and-instrumental ensemble from Scotland - specialists in fresh performances of Bach's music on an intimate scale - bring two of Bach's vivacious but rarely heard secular dramatic cantatas to the Lufthansa Festival. BWV201 explores the clash of new and old aesthetics represented by the Ovidian figures of Phoebus and Pan, while in BWV207, which features familiar music from the Brandenburg Concertos, the figures of Industry, Honour and Happiness, no less, celebrate the installation of a Leipzig professor.

'No performance could better justify small-scale Bach than this convincing marriage of scholarship and inspiration.'
