Everyone loves to find a typo, and no one is immune to making one—certainly not yours truly. Well, there’s an unfortunate blooper on the cover of this disc. It announces the contents as Cantatas 48, 98, 117, and 120. The first cantata is No. 34, of course, not 48, which is the volume number of the disc. Other than that, however, there’s not much to be said about this release that is remotely negative. The music is vintage Bach, including one of his most popular cantatas, the aforementioned No. 34. There are drums and trumpets in Nos. 34 and 120. In Cantata 117 Bach set all nine verses of the chorale text and unusually repeated music of the opening chorus as the finale. BWV 98 is one of three cantatas with the same title ( Was Gott tut, das ist wohlgetan ). It has no closing choral movement, but it has two fine arias, nicely sung by soprano Hana Blaziková and Peter Kooij, respectively. Countertenor Robin Blaze and tenor Satoshi Mizukoshi, too, are admirable throughout the program. Masaaki Suzuki’s direction is virtually flawless, and the ensemble responds correspondingly. This is a worthy continuation of this marvelous series.
