Notes & Reviews:

A fascinating recording of the 3 alto cantatas, with countertenor Maarten Engeltjes, Concerto d'Amsterdam and Vincent van Laar on the beautiful Bach organ of the Grote Kerk in Dordrecht (Holland).

American Record Guide, July / August 2012
Curtis convinces me initially with his fast and dance-like C-major prelude to Suite 3, played without recourse to his friends. I also like the way the Allemande works with added organ and tasteful tabla.

Notes & Reviews:
