Festive Cantatas for the 300th Anniversary of C. P. E. Bach’s Birth. The two festive cantatas heard on this release were first performed in modern times at the St. Thomas Church in Leipzig on the occasion of the three hundredth anniversary of Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach’s birth on 8 March 2014 and recorded especially for this release. The text of the first cantata is by Christian Wilhelm Alers, a pastor highly esteemed throughout Northern Germany as an author of religious texts who quite frequently collaborated with C. P. E. Bach and penned the text of the magnificent Der Tag des Gerichts set by Telemann during his late period.

The inexhaustible and compelling journey of exploring Bach’s cantatas and the great choruses which define the heart of their message – lies primarily in the depth, richness and variety of Bach’s response to the seamless rhythm of the liturgical year. Particular events in the Lutheran calendar are associated with the contemplative or the celebratory and yet, within these seasonal expectations, Bach departs radically from convention in his nearly-200 surviving church cantatas written between about 1703 and the late 1740s.

It’s amazing to think that world première recordings of Bach are possible today at all. The harpsichordist Alexander Grychtolik has painstakingly reconstructed two homage cantatas from Bach’s Leipzig years. The first, Erwählte Pleissenstadt (BWV 216a), survives only in a draft libretto and a few fragments of notation rediscovered in 2003 among the posthumous papers of a Japanese pianist. The second, O angenehme Melodei (BWV 210a), survives only in a soprano part and a separate print of the libretto for the earliest of its three versions.

This album presents two transcriptions of the cantatas BWV 170 and BWV 82: two polyphonic works of Joaquín Des Prés and William Byrd, that appear here like "two old faces" of Bach. Heaven appears as a territory of inspiration, a kingdom of peace and joy, beloved delight of the soul (BWV 170). These four works are reflected in a mirror of inspiration: the theme of the final game and farewell to the deceased Master. This vision of the "Beyond" provides a space of harmony in which both cantatas connect, as an echo of the mysterious scene of the presentation of Jesus in the temple …

Are you ready for extreme 18th century keyboard? The typically sparse packaging graphics of this ECM release may indicate only to German speakers what's contained inside: a "Tangentenflügel" is a tangent piano, a rare keyboard instrument of Mozart's time that used hammers, striking the strings at a tangent, but no dampers. The sound combines qualities of a clavichord (its nearest relative, but the tangent piano is louder), a fortepiano, and a harpsichord.
