About the event
In the 18th and 19th centuries music and declamation were often heard in close proximity: both the church congregation and the theatre audience listened with rapture to alternating speech and music. It is no wonder that public speaking then was conceived of as a kind a music, and music in turn was believed to be a kind of speech. In part two of our concerts dedicated to Johann Kuhnau’s Biblical Sonatas, reciter Thomas Höft and harpsichordist Louise Acabo will present music and declamation as sister arts which together can tell stories and excite emotions.
