Another example of Bach’s Drammi per Musica is the cantata, Der zufriedengestellte Aeolus (Aeolus placated), BWV 205. It was composed in 1725 to celebrate the nameday of August Friedrich Muller, an academic at the University of Leipzig.
The libretto, by Picander, is light and silly, even. The orchestra for this work’s premiere may have been the largest that Bach ever assembled! The cantata is one of twelve surviving works that Bach wrote for Leipzig University festive occasions.
