Complete collectie Bach Cantates door Ton Koopman en het Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra & Choir

Bach schreef vermoedelijk 295 cantates, waarvan er 202 bewaard zijn gebleven. Onder de cantates vallen vocale en instrumentale werken die Bach componeerde voor kerkdiensten, hoewel er ook 21 geschreven zijn voor seculaire gelegenheden. Veel cantates zijn voor een koor geschreven, andere voor enkel solo zangers, en de meeste zijn gebaseerd op teksten van de bijbel en hymnes. Veel componisten hebben cantates geschreven, maar de meer dan 200 cantates van Bach worden beschouwd als de voornaamste.

Ter gelegenheid van Ton Koopmans 65e verjaardag, bracht Challenge Classics de complete serie Bach cantates uit, die Koopman in ruim tien jaar tijd met zijn Amsterdam Orchestra & Choir en gastsolisten opnam. De collectie bestaat uit maar liefst 67 albums en is de eerste complete opname van alle cantates, inclusief de 21 seculaire cantates.

Ton Koopman is een van 's werelds meest vooraanstaande oude muziek specialisten. Hij richtte het Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra op in 1979 en het koor volgde in 1992. Zij zijn regelmatig te gast in de grootste zalen van Europa, de Verenigde Staten en Japan.

“Koopman's irrepressible enthusiasm and impish wit remain undiminished as he ends his immense 12 year project recording all Bach's cantatas. Assured vocal soloists, fluent choir and impeccable instrumentalists all meet Bach's often cruel demands with superb control of style and technique.” BBC Music Magazine, mei 2008



1994 begann Ton Koopman bei ERATO die Einspielung aller weltlichen und geistlichen Kantaten von J.S. Bach. Für die ersten vier Teile der (im ganzen 22-teiligen) Bachkantatenreihe erhielt Ton Koopman den ECHO KLASSIK 1997. Er gründete 2003 sein eigenes Label Antoine Marchand als Sublabel von Challenge Records. Nun liegt diese Gesamtaufnahme endlich zu einem sehr attraktiven Preis in einer handlichen, schön gestalteten CD-Box vor.
Per celebrare il settantesimo compleanno di Ton Koopman (2 ottobre 1944) Challenge Classics ristampa finalmente la sua edizione di riferimento dell’integrale delle cantate di Bach – un cofanetto offerto ora ad un prezzo ancora più speciale.

Biber. The recording of both of these works won the Cannes Classical Award for the best performance of 17th/18th century choral music. For its rare combination of textural clarity and interpretative flexibility, the Amsterdam Baroque Choir is considered among today’s most outstanding choirs. In 1994 Ton Koopman and the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra & Choir embarked upon the most ambitious recording project of the last decades: the integral recording of Bach’s secular and sacred cantatas. For this extraordinary project Koopman and his ensemble received the Deutsche Schallplatten-Preis Echo Klassik. Next to the CD recordings three books have been edited and published by Ton Koopman and the musicologist Christoph Wolff and a series of six documentaries was produced and broadcasted by various TV stations.
Alongside Bach’s music the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra & Choir has recorded all major baroque and classical works. Major recognitions include the Gramophone Award, Diapason d'Or, 10-Repertoire, Stern des Monats-Fono Forum, the Prix Hector Berlioz and two Edison Awards. In 2008 the ensemble and Ton Koopman have been honoured with the prestigious BBC Award. Since March 2003 “Antoine Marchand”, a new sub-label of Challenge Classics, took over the release of Koopman’s new recordings and among many others has published 22 CD boxes of the Bach Cantatas, a new recording of the St. Matthew Passion (on CD and DVD) and St. Markus Passion of J.S. Bach (DVD), live recorded in Milan, as well as the first seven volumes of the Buxtehude Opera-Omnia Edition. Ton Koopman and the ABO & ABC are regular guests at the major concert halls of Europe, the USA and Japan. In the 2008/09 season they will tour extensively in Europe (Amsterdam, Paris, Madrid, Vienna, Milan, Cologne, Dresden, Düsseldorf etc) and in Far East with concerts in Hong Kong, Seoul and Tokyo.

Composer(s)

Johann Sebastian Bach

Johann Sebastian Bach was a German composer and musician of the Baroque period. He enriched established German styles through his skill in counterpoint, harmonic and motivic organisation, and the adaptation of rhythms, forms, and textures from abroad, particularly from Italy and France. Bach's compositions include the Brandenburg Concertos, the Goldberg Variations, the Mass in B minor, two Passions, and hundreds of cantatas. His music is revered for its technical command, artistic beauty, and intellectual depth.  Bach's abilities as an organist were highly respected during his lifetime, although he was not widely recognised as a great composer until a revival of interest in and performances of his music in the first half of the 19th century. He is now generally regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time.
