Diego Fasolis studied at the Conservatory of Zurich and later with Gaston Litaize and Michael Radulescu. Since 1988 he has been conductor of the early music ensemble "I Barocchisti", with whom he has made a string of successful discs on the “Arts” label, including acclaimed recordings of J.S. Bach’s Orchestral Suites and Brandenburg Concertos. Featured soloists on this hybrid SACD of these two cantatas, include the renowned soprano Nancy Argenta, and the bass Klaus Mertens who has been a regular collaborator with Ton Koopman on his outstanding series of Bach recordings for the dutch label “Challenge Classics”.

The cantata “Aeolus pacified”, BWV205, was probably first performed in 1725 in the open air for Dr. August Friedrich Mueller, a Professor at the University of Leipzig. The professor enjoyed great popularity amongst his students, and they commissioned J.S. Bach to write a cantata as a tribute to his name day.

The second cantata on this disc, “Let our mouth be full of laughter” BWV 110, belongs to a completely different context. It was composed to celebrate the first day of Christmas, and is a suitably glorious piece which incorporates oboes, flutes, trumpets, bass drums and strings.
