Notes & Reviews:
BBC Music Magazine, December 2012
[BWV 157] contrives a ravishing foil to all the nuptial exuberance. Its tenor aria is elegantly turned by Christoph Genz...Suzuki's customary transparent springiness, sensitivity and almost feline gracefulness ensure a trousseau of sophisticated delights.
bbc.co.uk, 28th January 2013
Suzuki and his well-honed forces lavish at least as much loving attention on them as usual...Fluently stylish and idiomatic, the performers live and breathe Bach's music with as much immediacy as if it had been composed yesterday...one of the very best and most joyful in the series so far.
Gramophone Magazine, February 2013
Suzuki accords these works the same level of respect as Bach did, consistently striking the right balance between either joyous celebration or sober reflection and a controlled dignity proper to the occasions they adorned. His choir and orchestra perform lovingly as ever, phrasing with profond taste and intelligence, and benefitting from sound and balance judged to perfection.
The Observer, 14th October 2012
Even by the standards of Suzuki's continuing cantata series...this is an outstanding release...The duets of BWV 192 and 157 are deftly done, while the dense and complex choruses of BWV 195 are utterly stunning.
