Performance:   Sonics:    
With this volume N° 41 the Japanese releases of the contatas continues, here devoted to works in which the singers of the Solo Cantatas can be heard. Four Cantatas are on the program: "Ich will den Kreuzstab gerne tragen" BWV 56 for basse solo, "Ich habe genug" BWV 82 which was first conceived for basse but which Bach modified in 1731 for soprano solo, "Der Fried sei mit dire" BWV 158 also for basse, and "Ich bin vergnugt mit meinem Glucke" BWV 84 which, according to Edmond Lemaitre, "is surprising because of the relatively small number of participants and for its organization which makes it ressemble, by excluding the chorus, an Italian chamber cantata." Carolyn Sampson (soparano) and Peter Kooij (basse) share the singing with glee at all times. Masaaki and his orchestra also pitch in with invaluable balance in which both music and voices sing a human message of eternal depth. A vintage recording...
