The Christmas program brings songs and cantatas by German authors, as well as songs from Czech hymnals. Among the highlights of the program will be sacred cantatas by masters of this style: the richly orchestrated cantata by Dietrich Buxtehude and an equally splendid cantata for solo soprano and orchestra by Telemann. The final piece of the programme will be an exquisite concerto for flute and oboe by Bach’s contemporary Gottfried Heinrich Stölzel.
