The theme of Death is not at all new for Baroque composers - and Bach is particularly fascinated by it, in fact many other compositions bear the trace of this reference - but in Bach it takes on a distinctive expressiveness, which goes beyond the fixed framework of conventions that regulate the expression of Affects in an objective and detached manner.From the web of formalities Bach manages to reveal an intimate, personal participation in the feeling of death, so profoundly human, so intensely experienced, so humanly shared, as to exalt its most universal nature, an object of reflection that transcends eras and civilizations.
