Kuijken Bach Cantatas

Kuijken Bach Cantatas

Started in 2001 Sigiswald Kuijken cycle on Accent has made a very promising start. As one might expect these performances have a subtle sense of rhythmic hierarchy, with animated dance metres and well shaped continuo lines. The performances are highly convincing: the vocal soloists bring great energy to their lines, adding effective ornamentation in the choruses and projecting a distinctive character for each aria. These performances illuminate Bach’s cantatas with persuasive musicianship and also a critical appraisal of current performing styles. As a result, they are some of the finest examples of what historically informed performers can achieve.

“The surround-sound experience, in which all voices register clearly within the setting of a large, reverberant space, aids contemplation of words and music. Then there is the sheer quality of Las Petite Bande’s musicmaking, which blends impeccable period style with genuine substance of expression.” Classic FM Magazine, October 2007

    Of the one-to-a-part voices, Gerlinde Samann has a lovely quality but sacrifices sustained tone to diction. Christoph Genz's upper range glows brightly and Jan van der Crabben displays a fine... More…

    La Petite Bande, Sigiswald Kuijken

    Kuijken is uncompromisingly in the 'one-voice-to-a-part' camp for Bach cantatas… BWV178 strongly supports the solo-voice principle with a movement comprising chorale phrases interrupted by... More…
