Cantata: Weichet nur, betrübte Schatten BWV 202
Clara Rottsolk, Soprano

The Leipzig coffee house Café Zimmermann was known in its day as a hot spot and backdrop for performances by Bach's Collegium Musicum. The café saw the premiere of many of Bach's well-known works, as well as the music of other composers. In tribute to the café's spirit, BCSD opens the season with four of Bach's dazzling Brandenburg Concertos, as well as the ravishing wedding cantata Weichet nur, betrübte Schatten sung by the inimitable soprano Clara Rottsolk.

'Purcell's Evening Hymn gave Clara Rottsolk the opportunity to apply her radiant voice to the composer’s felicitous melodic turns and ravishing melismas, shading every phrase with eloquent phrasing that dared the listener to contemplate anything but her ecstatic utterance of the moment.'
-Ken Herman, SanDiegoStory
