Christine Schaefer sings Bach,
This review is from: Bach Cantatas (Audio CD)
This is perhaps the finest solo album of Bach cantatas of the last decade.
That Christine Schaefer was a leading interpreter of Bach cantatas and oratorios is nothing new. That she can deliver this reading of Bach's music at this point in time in her career is, however, a testimony to the phenomenal depth and breadth of her artistic contribution.
Here again, Ms Schaefer is exceptional in her ability to elevate the musical experience to a state of suspension of time, let it speak to our contemporary selves, and remain true to the spirit of the composers in her vast repertoire, spanning from Purcell, Handel, Mozart, German romantics, Verdi, etc. just to mention a few.
In this recording she is superbly accompanied by the baroque ensemble of the Berliner.
