Notes and Editorial Reviews

The two components of Volume 16 are among the more imposing of Bach’s cantatas, BVW 194 for its length (12 numbers in two parts) and BWV 119 for its extravagant instrumentarium––four trumpets with timpani, two recorders, three oboes, two oboes da caccia, strings, and continuo. Both open with choruses that are cast in the form of French overtures, but neither was written for regular Sunday worship. Cantata 194, adapted from an earlier secular cantata, commemorated the dedication of a new organ; No. 119 celebrated the inauguration of a new Leipzig town council (the most likely function of any Leipzig cantata that calls for multiple trumpets and kettledrums)... As always, I’ve barely skimmed the surface of the contents of these discs [Volumes Read more 16 to 19 of the Suzuki Bis Bach cantatas series]. For the Bach aficionado, they are, of course, indispensable. For other collectors, they are merely highly recommended.
