The two works on this disc perfectly illustrate a particular type of secular cantata, the so-called 'dramma per musica'. In such works the libretto is constructed dramatically, and the singers embody various roles, such as gods and other characters from antiquity, and allegorical figures.
Both cantatas recorded here are 'academic' cantatas, composed in honour of eminent members of the faculty at the University of Leipzig.
This disc features acclaimed British tenor Roderick Williams.
A welcome addition to the ongoing rehabitation of Bach's undervalued secular cantatas. Performance **** Recording ***** --BBC Music Magazine, Oct'14
The outstanding moment is Gratitude's Atzet dieses Angedenken in which Robin Blaze's gentle singing is accompanied by a lyrical pair of flutes with some softly repetitive interjections from unison upper strings that illustrate a hammer chipping away at marble. --Gramophone awards issue, 2014
These are unusually colourful and vivid performances, even by the standards so far set by Suzuki's Collegium Japan, and both singers and Orchestra get their teeth happily into some of Bach's most joyous and gutsy music. --IRR, Feb'15
