Johann Sebastian Bach, Cantata “Herz und Mund und Tat und Leben” BWV 147
Caroline Shaw, creation (world premiere) 

Awarded the Pulitzer Prize and multiple Grammys: Caroline Shaw is among the most successful composers of the younger generation on the international scene. However, she doesn’t label herself as such; rather, she sees herself simply as a musician who, both interpretively and in writing, doesn’t let genre boundaries confine her.
During the Thuringia Bach Festival, Caroline Shaw embarks on the daring task of being creative on-demand: Within a week, she will compose a new cantata and bring it to its premiere.
