 You can not go wrong with them... March 18, 2014 By L. Labra (Oakland, CA) See All My Reviews "Whether composer or interpreters these Cantatas have a tone of their own. As a dilettante and music lover of J.S. Bach it's hard not to get different versions and of course not easy to indicate nuances of the interpretations. First and the most obvious will be he listener perception, but despite of the obvious this CD has a brilliancy well balanced to sensitive listeners, with the voices of soloist such as: Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau (Baritone), Peter Schreier (Tenor), Edith Mathis (Soprano) together with the direction of Richter and the Munich Bach Orchestra, which it has a better reputation that its HB."
