Notes & Reviews:

Bach Collegium Japan and Masaaki Suzuki's fifth volume in their commendable survey of Bach's vocal music with a collection of his festive secular Birthday cantatas, composed to honor a broad array of personages and including pieces presented as musical dramas where the soloists embody characters from Greek mythology, here sung by Joanne Lunn, soprano; Robin Blaze, counter-tenor; Makoto Sakurada, tenor; Dominik Worner, bass.

Gramophone Magazine, November 2015
The choruses exhibit buoyancy as well as beautifully rich and balanced recorded sound. The challenge to modern ears remains the super-'historical' brass... bravely played on instruments without the modern corrective of tuning holes... the effect is something of a double-edged sword in weighing up the beauties of 'authentic' timbre and our expectation these days to hear music 'in tune'.

BBC Music Magazine, March 2016
Lithe choral singing, balletic rhythms, and a detailed yet transparent sound. Joanne Lunn is agile and fleet as the goddess of War... Robin Blaze is lyrical as the goddess Pallas... Makoto Sakurada's lucid tenor is particularly effective in the rhetorical and declamatory recitatives, while bass Dominik Wrner paints the words to vivid effect.

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
Suzuki has the full measure of all this music and projects it lucidly with splendid work from his choral and period instrument forces. The sound is vivid. The booklet contains excellent notes, with full texts and translations. A superb addition to Suzuki's series and recommendable as an individual release, too.
