Notes & Reviews:
This 9-CD boxed set of first releases from the RIAS archives presents the first ever attempt at a recording of the complete Bach cantatas. For everyone who is interested in the history of Bach interpretation and in the development of Germany's post-1945 cultural rebuilding, these recordings represent a significant enrichment. In 1947, Ristenpart established choral and orchestral ensembles at the RIAS Berlin, and together with emerging young singers (Fischer-Dieskau, Krebs and Giebel), embarked upon a recording series of the complete Bach cantatas. The project was never realized fully in its entirety, but the 29 Cantatas that still exist today from the archives are presented herein.
