The music of the Eighteenth century features delicate textures and refinement as well as expressiveness and energy. This was the age of the smaller chamber orchestra, and Bach was one of the compositional geniuses of the century. In this recording, the award-winning Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra, which specializes in authentic renditions on fine reproduction period instruments, performs four delightful Bach suites, including No. 1 in C, No. 2 in B Minor and Nos. 3 and 4 in D Major.

In this second volume (double-cd) of the Opera Omnia of Dieterich Buxtehude, Ton Koopman gives us his new reconstruction of Buxtehudes only surviving Abendmusik, this oratorio, also called "Das Jungste Gericht", that survived without attribution as an incomplete set of parts in the Uppsala University Library. As the style is similar to Buxtehudes lost Abendmusiker, this oratorio is almost certainly from his hand.

Buxtehude the organist expanded his activities as a vocal composer in an unprecedented way. He left a particular mark as a composer of large-scale oratorios («Abendmusiken»). His oratorios have not survived, but the many other vocal compositions that have come down to us represent a substantial body of works. These include in particular larger and shorter chorale settings of various kinds, sacred concertos (i.e., motets with differentiated instrumental accompaniment), arias, and multi-movement structures consisting of concertos, arias, and chorales that were later referred to as cantatas. This album (as did vol.V) presents a mixed selection of works in the above mentioned genres: arias, concertos, and – as a composite of the two – cantatas.

Danish-German composer Dietrich Buxtehude has an extensive output of vocal music in addition to his far better known canon of organ music. The vocal music is more obscure in that it is such a mixed bag. The oratorios he wrote have gone lost, many pieces relate directly to the organ music in a way that is difficult to divine now and some of the sacred concertos he composed are less than compelling, written for afternoon lunch concerts and not meant as "serious" music.

Bach’s St. John Passion with a star-studded lineup of soprano Johennette Zomer, countertenor Andreas Scholl, tenor Mark Padmore, and bass Klaus Mertens, conducted by Ton Koopman, was bound to be—and indeed was—an enjoyable affair. A little over two years ago the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra performed the B-minor Mass with him, now they tackled the ‘smaller’ Passion.

Having completed his years-long traversal through the vocal music of Johann Sebastian Bach for Challenge Classics, Ton Koopman picks up the thread with a valuable new series surveying the complete works of Bach's Danish predecessor Dietrich Buxtehude. While Buxtehude's total output for organ has already been surveyed, albeit infrequently, on record, there are still many works falling outside that genre that have never been committed to vinyl or disc, so this is potentially a highly valuable project.

Say what you will about Ton Koopman's many Bach recordings, you have to admit his few Buxtehude recordings are something special. For some, Koopman's Bach, for all its deep devotion and immense musicality, was still a bit too individualistic, but Koopman's Buxtehude, while matching his Bach for devotion and musicality, was appropriately quirky and eccentric.

Dieterich Buxtehude’s organ works are his most significant contribution to the history of music. They consist of a comprehensive corpus of just 90 compositions, of which more than half are chorale settings. However, these are mostly shorter than the preludes, toccatas and other freely conceived pieces, so these last represent a more substantial share of his entire output.

It is 22 years since Savall and Koopman first recorded the Bach gamba sonatas, in the days when Koopman still looked like he should have been presenting The Old Grey Whistle Test. This release for Savall's own Alia Vox label, however, is right up to date, a tame-haired Koopman and an amazingly unaltered Savall having set them down at the beginning of this year. The recording's quick turnaround is a fitting reflection of the state of the musical relationship that has obtained between these two ever since they first performed together in 1970 after only half an hour's rehearsal. Make no mistake, these Bach performances are right in the slot.
