Editorial Reviews

What is it about Bach cantatas and the millennium? For years after the landmark Harnoncourt-Leonhardt series from the early 1980s, none of the big-name period-instrument conductors (or their record labels) were inclined to tackle all 200-plus Bach cantatas. Then three complete sets started appearing in the late '90s--conducted by John Eliot Gardiner (the entire series to be issued in 2000), Ton Koopman (well under way), and proverbial dark horse Masaaki Suzuki. He and his Bach Collegium Japan got off to a less-than-flashy start with volume 1 but have gone from strength to strength since then: vol. 7 and vol. 8 are superb; vol. 6 is positively exhilarating. Volume 9 is just as impressive--especially the exultant Cantata No. 76, Die Himmel erzählen, featuring an extensive virtuoso part for tromba da tirarsi (slide trumpet), for which the BCJ's trumpeter specially researched and built an instrument. The other two cantatas are essentially cheerful, if smaller-scale affairs; the opening aria of Cantata No. 24 has an amusing note of self-satisfied German chauvinism. Soprano Midori Suzuki and countertenor Robin Blaze combine boylike purity with grown-up technique; bass Chiyuki Urano doesn't quite manage the fast passage work of his bravado trumpet-and-bass aria, but he and tenor Gerd Türk do good work overall. Suzuki's radiant chorus and orchestra are the equals of any such group in the world. --Matthew Westphal
