The Cantatas for the 'Zimmermann Gardens'. The secular cantatas afford us a glimpse of what Bach could have done if he had been tempted to write an opera. They reveal a composer who was highly sensitive not only to the place where they were to be performed (in the Zimmermann café or gardens in Leipzig), but also to the texts he was given to set and to the audience that was to listen to them. The result is a number of quite fascinating works which demonstrate the full range of Bach's musical palette.

Des cantates "pour les jardins Zimmermann" Les cantates profanes nous permettent d'entrevoir ce que J.S. Bach aurait pu faire s'il avait été amené à composer pour l'opéra : elles révèlent à la fois un compositeur très attentif aux lieux d'exécution (au café ou dans les jardins Zimmermann de Leipzig), aux textes qu'on lui soumettait et aux publics visés. De cette réflexion naquirent des ouvrages tout à fait fascinants, dans lesquels on retrouve l'extraordinaire palette dramatique de Bach.
