Bach's music as he might have heard it
The battle continues to rage over how many musicians and singers Bach expected to hear when his music was performed. Ensemble Amarillis takes a stab here at presenting a program of excerpts he himself might have selected for a small group. Not only are period instruments used (played, I assume, at Baroque pitch, although this is not specified), but boys sing the solos from four cantatas. In between those arias are chamber works expertly dispatched by the three players, and the Concerto Italien for solo keyboard. Unfortunately, there's just not much vocal power at the boys' disposal, and they are often swamped by the instruments. Otherwise, it's a beautifully clear recording--you can hear the couplers drop back into place in the harpsichord at the end of the Concerto. The booklet features a rather fanciful essay and performer bios in three languages, but no texts.
