Notes and Editorial Reviews

This new release features three live recordings from the evangelical church in Trogen AR, Switzerland (BWV 24 und 79) and from the evangelical church in Teufen, Switzerland (BWV 80). The works are performed the choir & orchestra of the J.S. Bach Foundation under the direction of Rudolf Lutz, and are played on historical instruments. The album includes a comprehensive booklet with german cantata texts, individual cantata introductions (in English and German) and musicological contributions by Dr. Anselm Hartinger and Rudolf Lutz. As part of the celebrations of the Luther year 2017, we publish with this release 2 Reformation cantatas – BWV 80 (with the famous setting of Luther’s chorale) and BWV 79. BWV 79 will be realized in our version Read more with only 4 concertante voices, just like it would have been practiced realistically during Bachs time. The audience sung along during the live performance of the second chorale, making this a truly one of a kind recording. Read less
