Notes & Reviews:

This two-disc set selling for the price of one CD presents three cantatas dating from 1714, when Bach was serving at the court of Weimar.

BBC Music Magazine
Out to impress, Bach's instrumental imagination soared in these works. ... the playing is consistently rewarding, more so than the singing which at its most persuasive is ravishing, but (excepting Peter Harvey) is not without the odd hint of strain. Still there are marvellous things from all, and this version of BWV 21 sustains greater presence than Masaaki.
