5.0 out of 5 stars J. Sebastian Bach at 30-something February 18, 2008
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
In 1723, the Lutheran church (and thus, the city) of Leipzig was looking for a Kantor to compose and coordinate the music for at least at two churches, the well-known of which was the Tomaskirche (St Thomas' Church). Although J. S. Bach (1685-1750) was not their first choice (they wanted Telemann), they settled for him because he was the best they could get (!). Thus began perhaps the single most important tenure of employment in the history of music. Most of Bach's cantatas, (numbering well over 200) as well as the great Passions were created during that period at that place.

But for nearly a decade before coming to Leipzig, Bach was in charge of the music at the Court at Weimar (1708-1717). (Bach held a position at Koethen between Weimar and Leipzig; 1718-1723). Bach was in his 30s during the Weimar period and it was there that Bach developed the basic structure of the cantatas (Bach called them "sacred concertos"). These three examples are among the finest he ever produced. In fact, in later, more massive works like the B-minor Mass, Bach revisited music he made at Weimar and mined it for the new works. For example, the opening chorus in BWV 12 is a prototype of the music Bach would provide for the Crucifixus in the B-minor mass. Far, then, from being "immature", the cantatas recorded here, for Palm Sunday, the Third Sunday after Easter and Pentacost, must be counted among the great musical literature of the world.

I have been a student and lover of Bach's music for all my life. Because my musical education has been self-directed if not self-taught, there are huge gaps. One of those gaps used to be Bach's sacred vocal music. It is fair to say that the choral music, including the Cantatas and the St Matthew Passion, constitutes Bach's own most sublime creations.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Revelation February 17, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Joshua Rifkin and his persistence in performing Bach's choral works one voice per part is a winner again. He demonstrates that it is, in fact, possible to perform heavy-sounding, trumpets/timpani works such as BWV 172 with a four persons choir.
You might find yourself considering the one voice per part approach favorable in that the every detail of Bach's works are distinguishable and not muddled by over-sized choirs; as if all of Bach's intentions are finally coming to our ears.
The soloists are of top quality and the singers blend with each other superbly. The choruses, in no way, sound undersized and indeed have the majestic effect of a larger chorus. Joshua Rifkin's interpretation of these three cantatas are fresh. This recording is amazing, beyond words.
The opening and closing chorus for BWV 172, "Erschallet, Ihr Lieder," is one of the most thrilling Bach recordings I have heard.
