Rilling Bach Cantatas

Back in 1969 Helmuth Rilling and his ensembles started recording albums of Johann Sebastian Bach's lesser known cantatas. By the eve of Bach's 300th birthday in 1985 this exercise had resulted in the first complete recording of Bach's cantatas. In return for their great artistic and editorial achievement Helmuth Rilling and Hänssler Verlag were promptly awarded the "Grand Prix du Disque".

Rilling described his experience of this awesome project. "What impressed me most was that from the individual cantatas of the early years through the works composed at four-week intervals during the Weimar period and those of his first years in Leipzig, where he produced a new cantata almost every Sunday, to the late works created after yet a larger interval, no two cantatas are alike".

He uses modern instruments, though his performance style is clearly historically influenced. The soloists are always reliable and the contributions of Augér, Watkinson, Equiluz, Nimsgern, and sometimes Schreier are outstanding. The Chorus - Gächinger Kantorei is also very much a plus point.
