Sigiswald Kuijken's Bach Project

A new one voice per part (OVPP) series of Bach cantata recordings directed by Sigiswald Kuijken is underway on Accent Records. The series will comprise 20 hybrid SACDs, not a complete set of cantatas by any means, but enough for a complete liturgical year.

J.S. Bach. Matthäus Passion BWV 244. Challenge Classics CC 72357 (3 CDs, January 2010). Details / "A barefooted, vulnerable St Matthew Passion of sky-high perfection" -- Because of construction in Leuven, recording had to be done at night. "During the first night a full live recording was made. And during daytime [producer] Bert [van der Wolf] did his production work, so that the next three nights he knew exactly what parts still had to be done. It was a very intense and unique process." Sigiswald Kuijken, La Petite Bande. Choir I: Gerlinde Sämann, soprano; Petra Noskaiová, contralto; Christoph Genz, tenor; Jan van der Crabben, baritone. Choir II: Marie Kuijken, soprano; Patrizia Hardt, contralto; Bernhard Hunziger, tenor; Marcus Niedermeyr, bass. A fine performance and recording that I can recommend. I haven't heard John Butt's recording and thus have no basis for comparison. US | UK | FR | DE | CA | JP
