J. S. Bach - Easter Oratorio (II. Adagio)

Sheet music for flute

Alt. Title: Oster-Oratorium
Info: This is the third work for which Bach employed the term "Oratorioum", the other two being the Christmas Oratorio and the Ascension Oratorio. None of these works is dramatically dissimilar to what Bach calls in other situations "cantata", except that the Christmas Oratorio is actually a set of six distinct cantatas. On the second movement (Adagio) is slow and is a stark contrast with ithe first movement, the overwhelming joy of the Easter miracle disappears for a moment, perhaps as a reminder of the great sacrifice of Christ's death on a cross.
Opus number: BWV 249
Date: 1725
Artist: Johann Sebastian Bach
Born: 21 March 1685 , Eisenach

The artist: One of the greatest composers of all time. Bach wrote hundreds of pieces for organ, choir, as well as many other instruments. He spent most of his life as a church organist and a choir director. His music combines profound expression with clever musico-mathematical feats, like fugues and cannons in which the same melody is played against itself in various ways.
