Bach never wrote an opera, but the drama and storytelling in his cantatas often has an operatic quality. Hear that drama this week on The Bach Hour.

On the program:

Piece d'Orgue (Fantasy) in G, BWV 572 - Fretwork

Missa Brevis in G minor, BWV 235 - Cantus Cölln, Konrad Junghänel

Partita No. 3 in A minor, BWV 827 - Jeremy Denk, piano (pictured)
