La Petite Bande/Sigiswald Kuijken
A few years ago Sigiswald Kuijken and his Ensemble La Petite Bande decided to perform Bach’s vocal works only with one singer per register. Joshua Rifkin’s well-founded scientific researches, which he started at the beginning of the 1980s, revealed that Bach was accustomed to compose his music for a vocal quartet. The controversy on this thesis is still lasting, but the enthusiastic reviews of the specialized publications as well as – first of all – the convincing artistic results agree with Sigiswald Kuijken and his approach. The project is not conceived to produce an integral of all cantatas, but it shall be recorded one cantata for every Sunday and high feasts of the liturgical year.
