Notes & Reviews:

In his fascinating career, the Austrian conductor Nikolaus Harnoncourt has transformed the way the world hears the music of Johann Sebastian Bach - a transformation in which he challenges himself, as well as the audience. In honor of his 80th birthday, Deutsche Harmonia Mundi is releasing a new recording of three essential Bach cantatas, with Harnoncourt conducting the pioneering period-instruments ensemble he founded over 50 years ago, the Concentus Musicus Wien, joined by the Arnold Schoenberg Chor and a gallery of impeccable solo singers.
