This review is from: The Complete Works of Johann Sebastian Bach - Bachakademie 10th Anniversary Special Collection (Audio CD)
Helmut Rilling is a brilliant conductor (I have seen him conduct in Toronto). Speaking as a classical musician myself, I can safely say that these cantatas are simply marvellous. Each voice is balanced very well against the orchestra. This boxed set is a great deal considering when it was first issued the complete recordings cost over $2,000. This is, in my opinion, the only authoritative version of Bach's complete works.
