Am Abend aber desselbigen Sabbats, BWV42

first performed 8 April 1725

The sinfonia to Cantata 42 (‘Am Abend aber desselbigen Sabbats’), composed for 8 April 1725, is a charming but active movement for Bach’s basic orchestra of oboes and strings, which was presumably designed to prepare the listening congregation for the description of the appearance of the risen Christ to the disciples who had just assembled and locked themselves into a room.

La sinfonia pour la Cantate 42, composée pour le 8 avril 1725, est un mouvement charmant mais très actif pour l’orchestre de base de Bach de hautbois et cordes; il était vraisemblablement destiné à préparer la congrégation à la description de l’apparition du Christ ressuscité aux disciples qui venaient de se réunir et s’étaient enfermés dans une pièce.

Die Sinfonia der Kantate Nr. 42, komponiert zur Aufführung am 8. April 1725, ist ein charmantes, lebhaftes Werk für das bei Bach übliche Orchester aus Obœn und Streichern und war vermutlich dazu gedacht, die zuhörende Gemeinde auf die Schilderung vorzubereiten, wie der auferstandene Jesus seinen Jüngern erscheint, die sich soeben versammelt und in einem Zimmer eingeschlossen haben.
