Product Description

Product Description

This group of works selected from the award-winning cycle of recordings of the complete cantatas of J. S. Bach by Ton Koopman and the Amsterdam baroque Orchestra and Choir, represent those which set dialogue texts to music. Some of these cantatas were specifically entitled "Dialogus" in Latin or "Dialogo" in Italian as genre designation. This is the case with the Dialogus "Ach Gott, wie manches Herzeleid" (BWV 58), "Erfreut euch, ihr Herzen" (BWV 66), "Ich geh und suche mit Verlangen" (BWV 49), "O Ewigkeit, du Donnerwort" (BWV 60) and the Concerto in Dialogo "Liebster Jesu, mein Verlangen" (BWV 32).

"Ich geh und suche mit Verlangen" BWV 49 was first performed on November 3, 1726. "O Ewigkeit, du Donnerwort" BWV 60 was written for the 24th Sunday after Trinity and received its first performance on November 7, 1723. "Wachet auf, ruft uns die Stimme" BWV 140 was composed for the last Sunday of the church year, the 27th after Trinity, and first performed on November 25, 1731. "Wer mich liebet, der wird mein Wort halten" BWV 59 was written for Whit Sunday and performed in Leipzig on May 28, 1724, but perhaps also the year before, on May 16, 1723 at the Pauliner Church for the service of the university community, for which Bach was responsible on the high feasts.

Personnel:
The Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra & Choir, Ton Koopman - (conductor)

Soloists:
Sybilla Rubens, Sandrine Piau, Ruth Ziesak - (soprano), Bogna Bartosz - (alto), Jorg Durmuller, James Gilchrist - (tenor), Klaus Mertens - (bass)

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
"Ich geh und suche mit Verlangen" BWV 49 is a dialogue between the Soul as the bride of Christ (soprano = Sybilla Rubens) and Jesus as bridegroom (bass = Klaus Mertens) following the traditional interpretation of the Song of Songs.
"O Ewigkeit du Donnerwort" BWV 60 is an allegorical dialogue between Fear (alto = Bogna Bartosz) and Hope (tenor = Jorg Durmuller), and Jesus (bass = Klaus Mertens) and follows the words of the Gospel according to St. Matthew 9:18-26 concerning the raising of Jairus's daughter from the dead.
"Wachet auf ruft uns die Stimme" BWV 140 is based on the Gospel text from St. Mathew concerning the wise and foolish virgins, virgin (Soprano = Sandrine Piau), chorale(tenor = James Gilchrist), Jesus(bass = Klaus Merten).
"Wer mich liebet der wird mein Wort halten" BWV 59 is a dialogue between the Soul (soprano = Ruth Ziesak) and Christ (bass = Klaus Mertens).
The soloists and especially the choir are spectacular and the instrumentalists play with a brilliance and linear clarity that is at or above the level of the best of the Herreweghe cantata series performances for Harmonia Mundi.
NO LIBRETTO TEXT OF THE CANTATAS IS PROVIDED. This is indeed a poor situation for a first issue CD, the result of a penny pinching recording company. See the following recording for a superb recording of Cantata BWV 49 with librettoJ.S. Bach: Cantatas with Violoncello Piccolo BWV 49, 115 & 180
