J.S.Bach - Cantatas with the oboe (extracts)

4 CD - MP3 192 Kbps - 4 RAR (118+110+110+115Mb)

Some time ago I made a compilation for my father. He is a big fan of the oboe and loves Bach cantatas so I searched the Bach Hanssler Edition Bachakademie CDs trying to find the movements in which a singer is accompanied by the oboe. This is the result and I hope some of you will find it worth a listening.

Handel - Athalia & Alcina (Sutherland)

2 CD MP3 192 Kbps - RAR 249Mb

Joan Sutherland (Athalia) Emma Kirkby (Josabeth)
Aled Jones (Joas) James Bowman (Joad)
Anthony Rolfe Johnson (Mathan) David Thomas (Abner)
The Academy of Ancient Music
Choir of New College, Oxford
Christopher Hogwood

This must be one of the greatest of all Handel oratorio sets. A glorious performance with really excellent singers - Kirkby and Sutherland both exceptional and wonderfully contrasted, James Bowman and Rolfe-Johnson both first rate - and a really beautiful piece of music. Hogwood is truly on form and the set is very nicely paced. Athalia is credited as the first truly great English oratorio and this set surely does it full justice.

Joan Sutherland (Alcina) Jeannette van Dijck (Morgana)
Norma Procter (Bradamante) Fritz Wunderlich (Ruggiero)
Nicola Monti (Oronte) Thomas Hemsley (Melisso)
Kolner Rundfunkchor, Bernhard Zimmermann
Cappella Coloniensis, Ferdinand Leitner

This recording is the first official release in any format of this once-in-a-lifetime concert performance featuring Dame Joan Sutherland and Fritz Wunderlich. In 1959 performances of Handel were just beginning to embrace the original instrument movement making this recording an invaluable historic record of performance practice. In addition to musicological interest, the CDs present Joan Sutherland at the beginning of her illustrious career in the full bloom of youth. She was flown in as a last minute replacement for the scheduled soprano and proceeded to give a virtuoso performance of the demanding title role.

J.S.Bach - Matthaus-Passion (1841)

(...) Christoph Spering has made a very good attempt on this shortened masterpiece, and has not only taken Mendelssohn's reworking, but has also used contemporaneous numbers of players and singers. He has also used instruments similar to those used at the first version in 1829, and its final re-working in 1841. It was this work which started the renaissance in the appreciation of the choral works of J. S. Bach, the 1829 performance being the first since the death of the composer in 1750. To the specialist collector therefore, this issue is of major importance as it gives the opportunity to hear the recreation of a work which was instrumental in us re-discovering Bach's major choral works.(...)
