Product Description

Product Description

Following the album Arias, her much-acclaimed debut album on Sony Classical, the German soprano returns to Bach with three famous cantatas she has never recorded before. Christine Schäfer is accompanied by the Berliner Barocksolisten, a first-class ensemble of players from the Berlin Philharmonic who perform on modern instruments in historically informed style. Christine Schäfer studied at the Berlin Conservatory with Professor Ingrid Figur, the late Arleen Augér, Aribert Reimann, Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau and Sena Jurinac and has gone on to enjoy one of the most successful international opera, concert, recital and recording careers of her generation.

Format: 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.
