Notes & Reviews:

Johann Sebastian Bach was familiar with the musical styles and forms of many nations. Although known as a 'serious' composer, he was also a man who enjoyed the good life, intellectual debates and even Italian opera. Bach's BWV 201, 205 and 213 are veritable miniature operas, imbued with Italian vocality, humor and joie de vivre. They reveal an extraordinarily expressive richness with the conciseness of the pocket theatre. This boxed-set of Bach's 'dramas' performed by Leonardo García Alarcón and Les Agrémens includes a bonus DVD recorded live at the Ambronay Festival in 2011 featuring Die Wahl des Herkules.

American Record Guide, March / April 2013
The music is festive and colorful. All the singers involved are of excellent quality, with fine stylistic and dramatic sensitivities. The chorus of 22 and period orchestra of 30 are spirited. Alarcon brings dedication to these works. Robust sound; good booklet with fine notes, full texts, and translations.
