About

In 2010 the world is celebrating the 300th anniversary of the birth of Wilhelm Friedemann Bach, whose music – for the most disparate reasons – was for a long time shrouded in oblivion. Many of his works disappeared completely after the Second World War and it was not until 1999 that they were rediscovered in Kiev.

This world-premiere recording of four of his cantatas grants us a fascinating insight into the composer's output and invites us to join him on a musical voyage of discovery. These ambitious works, which were written for Christmas and Ascension, attest to the technical and musical virtuosity of Johann Sebastian Bach's eldest son.

"The Bach Choir gave the impression of excellent preparation: radiant and articulating with total freedom" - Frankfurter Rundschau
 
"The outstanding singers, Dorothee Mields (soprano), Gerhild Romberger (contralto), Georg Poplutz (tenor) and Klaus Mertens (bass)" - Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung
