Bach Cantatas For The Complete Liturgical Year

Sigiswald Kuijken
Description:
In the beginning there was great skepticism towards the thesis Of Joshua Rifkin that Bach's sacred vocal works were originally written for solo voices. Now this interpretation is establishing itself more and more. With this edition Sigiswald Kuijken and his ensemble La Petite Bande want to strengthen this new approach and prove it right by their excellent performances. The project of recording one cantata composed for each Sunday and high feast of the liturgical year has been spread over several concert seasons, during each of which three to four cantatas were given concert performances and were recorded. As far as possible this was made during the releant time of the year for which the cantatas were written. "Among current cantata series Sigiswald Kuijken's has a distinctive place, his one-to-a-part voices and few instruments achieving striking delicacy. His vocal soloists sing with disarming simplicity and ease in arias, and blend superbly in ensemble. A rare treat, Kuijken ? and Bach ? at their very best." (BBC Music Magazine, March 2010, review vol. 9)
