Notes & Reviews:

"Harnoncourt tops off the complete Das Alte Werk set of Bach's church cantatas with admirably ebullient accounts of (these two) secular cantatas...the exuberance of the performance carries over into Harnoncourt's accompaniments - no scholarly rectitude here - and the recording is first rate." -Penguin Guide

DAS ALTE WERK was launched in 1958 with the release of 7" discs of Gregorian chant and music by the medieval French composer Guillamume de Machaut, quickly gaining a reputation for historically informed, high-quality recordings. There soon followed LPs of harpsichord sonatas by Scarlatti, concerti grossi by Handel and partitas for solo violin by Bach. The signing of Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Gustav Leonhardt, Frans Bruggen and Jaap Schroder ushered in a new era
