Notes & Reviews:

In music history the name of Johann Christian Schieferdecker (1679 - 1732) appears mostly as a footnote, although he shared the orchestra pit during opera performances with many of the greats and worked with them, including Reinhard Keiser, Johann Mattheson and George Frideric Handel! None of his operas have survived today. His sacred music output includes three cantatas for solo Bass and strings which are presented here for the first time, performed in a very impressive interpretation by Klaus Mertens and the Hamburger Ratsmusik.

American Record Guide, January/February 2013
The nature of Schieferdecker's writing bears witness to his experience as an opera composer. His solo German concertos are essentially cantatas composed in the Lutheran tradition - that is, as a sequence of recitatives and arias ending in a chorale, accompanied by a small ensemble of strings and basso continuo. There is also a Latin concerto - In Te Domine Speravi. It and the German cantatas Triumph, Triumph, Belial ist nun Erleget, Auf, Auf, Mein Herz, Sinn und Gemnte, and Weicht, Ihr Schwarzen Trauerwolken, are here recorded for the first time. The instrumental concertos are overture suites, the form favored by German composers of the era. Each of these two concertos (No. 9 in G and No. 13 in C) come from Schieferdecker's XII Musicalische Concerte (Hamburg, 1713) and consist of an overture followed by a sequence of courtly dances. The works, whether for voice or instruments alone, are performed to a very high caliber. It seems hard to believe that music of such high quality could be overlooked. Indeed, it may give us an indication of the large corpus of music that remains to be recorded. Texts and notes in English.
