One of the most important releases in years,
This review is from: The RIAS Bach Cantatas Project Berlin 1949 - 1952 (Audio CD)
This collection of Bach's Cantatas is without a doubt one of the most important releases of the Master's works on CD in recent years. Karl Ristenpart's peerless direction of ensembles with many of Europe's top musicians adds up to the leading interpretations of Bach's music on record, most of which has been unavailable for years. The recording standard is very high and the musicianship speaks for itself. A worthy accompaniment to Accord's box set (finally released in 2003) of Ristenpart's Bach Orchestral Works.
