Aria: "Komm, komm, mein Herze steht dir offen" (BWV 74 No 2) for Oboes & Cello

Uploaded on Jun 19, 2015

Wer mich liebet, der wird mein Wort halten ("If a man love me, he will keep my words", more literally: "He who loves me will obey my commands"), BWV 74, is a church cantata by Johann Sebastian Bach. He composed this cantata in his second year in Leipzig for the first day of Pentecost (Whit Sunday). The prescribed readings for the feast day were from the Acts of the Apostles (Acts 2:1–13) and the Gospel of John, part of the Farewell discourse (John 14:23–31).Bach first performed the cantata on 20 May 1725. This, the second movement is a soprano aria "Komm, komm, mein Herze steht dir offen" (Come, come, my heart lies open for You) with oboe da caccia, a transposition of the bass and violin pairing of BWV 59. The new arrangement lends a "childlike openness" to the movement. It is in F major and common time. Source: Wikipedia (,_der_wird_mein_Wort_halten,_BWV_74). Although originally scored for solo soprano, oboe da caccia, and basso continuo, I created this Arrangement for 2 Oboes & Cello.
