With its recording of Handel organ concertos Op.4 (PAS944), the ensemble La Divina Armonia under Lorenzo Ghielmi impressively demonstrated that they can add new tunes to well-known standard repertoire, which requires interpretative taste, superior technology and exceptional natural musicality. The musicians prove that they have all of this in abundance with their recording of three Bach concertos which experienced a makeover by the performers, without distorting the works.

Two things distinguished Thomas Hengelbrock's 1996 recording of Bach's B minor Mass from the many other historically informed performances of the work released in the early digital era. Where many other conductors used small mixed choirs, Hengelbrock not only used the 26-voice Bathasar-Neumann-Chor, he drew his soloists from it. And where most other conductors tended exclusively toward quick tempos, Hengelbrock mixed things up, favoring fast tempos in joyful movements and slow tempos for painful movements.

"If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again”. Philippe Herreweghe’s longlasting interest in the works of the Cantor of Leipzig has turned him into a man whose views evolve as he delves deeper into his subject matter. The joy that he feels – combined with a very legitimate sense of pride – in having forged musical tools that have today reached maturity, has led him to come back on a Missa that has never ceased to intrigue him: the catholic Missa of the protestant composer Bach.

Johann Sebastian Bachs St John Passion is, along with the St Matthew Passion, without doubt one of the most important works he ever composed. It established a new tradition for Good Friday vespers in Leipzig, and with sublime skill Bach managed to retain a spirit of church worship while creating an almost operatic narrative that movingly depicts Christs trial, death, and ultimate apotheosis. Bachs numerous revisions always demand a certain amount of scholarly decision-making, and this recording of the St John Passion uses the final 1749 version that not only draws on and reinforces the best of Bachs original concept, but incorporates the additional movements of the 1725 version.

A familiar work with a different take: Martin Heini plays Bach's Goldberg Variations on the beautiful organ of Horw Church, Switzerland, along with three masterpieces written for organ, the Fantasie in G major, the Prelude and Fugue in D Minor and the great Passacaglia and Fugue in C Minor.

Many scholarly questions still surround Bachs late work, the Musicalische Opfer (Musical Offering), but about the musics staggering brilliance there is no question. On this CD, the ensemble Il Gardellino combines this ornate contrapuntal masterpiece with the similarly late and intricate Einige canonische Veranderung uber das Weynacht-Lied, BWV 769, in many ways a perfect compliment to the Musicalische Opfer, for which theyve created this chamber music version especially for this recording.

With soloists Regula Muhlemann, Anna Lucia Richter, Wiebke Lehmkuhl, Sebastian Kohlhepp, and Michael Nagy, the newly-formed enembles of the Gaechinger Cantorey conducted by Hans-Christoph Rademann celebrate their first Christmas Oratorio together with this recording of all six cantatas!

Jumping from Mozart on Deutsche Grammophon to Bach on Decca, oboist Albrecht Mayer continues to explore transcriptions as well as works originally for his instrument on Voices of Bach. This is a good and necessary thing since neither Mozart nor Bach wrote a sufficient number of works for the oboe to fill out a single disc. In the case of Bach, Mayer has hit on the ingenious solution of including not just Bach's canonical Oboe Concerto, plus his concertos for oboe d'amore and English horn, but also eight arrangements of well-known chorales for chorus and oboe. This serves the dual tasks of keeping the program interesting for the listener and challenging for Mayer, and it works brilliantly. With his apparently effortless virtuoso technique and his pungent but poignant tone, Mayer turns in soulful and stylish performances of the three concertos, plus sweetly spiritualized accounts of the chorales. The English Concert, the excellent English-based Baroque period orchestra, and Trinity Baroque, a very small but quite superb chorus, support Mayer's solos with graceful but heartfelt accompaniments, and Decca captures them in clean, warm, and open digital sound.
