Suzuki Vol 53 Bach Cantatas. Available for release this Monday, MDT has stock that is ready to be shipped.
This landmark series is nearly at its end in this antepenultimate recording. The three cantatas on this recording come from the first half of the 1730s and clearly show Bach’s affinity for instrumental colour and expressive melodies rich in syncopation and suspensions.
All three works are choral cantatas based on well-known hymns and are therefore more choral in style.
