Notes & Reviews:

The secular cantatas afford us a glimpse of what J.S. Bach could have done if he had been tempted to write an opera. They reveal a composer who was highly sensitive not only to the place where they were to be performed (in the Zimmermann café or gardens in Leipzig), but also to the texts he was given to set and to the audience that was to listen to them. As performed by the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin and René Jacobs, these fascinating works demonstrate the full range of Bach's musical palette.
