About this album

While the genius of J.S. Bach (1685-1750) is commemorated throughout the world during this, the very first year of the twenty-first century, several thought provoking and astonishing facts are worth pondering. During Bach’s lifetime, the dissemination of his works via the medium of publishing and printing was meagre compared with lesser talents, indeed, only a handful of purely instrumental compositions dominated his published oeuvre. However it is even more astonishing that contemporaries such as Handel, Telemann and Hasse appear to have enjoyed a much greater and celebrated public appreciation. Should there be surprise then, that upon Bach’s earthly departure his music suffered much the same fate as any decent and capable Capellmeister of the era? His music was simply shelved, its place usurped by the next in line. (,,,)

Reviews

Volkskrant

(...) veel instrumentale variteit (...) (...) het plezier in het muziekmaken staat hoorbaar voorop en is buitengewoon helder en fraai vastgelegd. Waarmee klagers over het kille of steriele karakter van digitale opnamen al bij voorbaat alle wind uit de zeilen wordt genomen.(...)

Music Week

(...) this disc is a true musical offering from a gifted ensemble of young British-based early music players. They deliver expressively intuitive, compelling performances.

Music teachers (WWW)

(...) This is a disc of great merit with cleanly phrased and articulated playing, and, importlantly, a great sense of affekt. Podger and Solomon form an excellent partnership that is more than ably supported by Yeadon and da Costa on the continuo line. (...) (...) The playing is both warm and sumptuous, and well-polished performances from Florilegium make it a worthwhile purchase. (...)

Music Week

(...) Whatever Florilegium play sounds precious. This recording is golden. International Record Review (...) this disc is a true musical offering from a gifted ensemble of young British-based early music players. They deliver expressively intuitive, compelling performances.

Apeldoornse Courant

(...) een wonderbaarlijk mooi album (...) (...) het ensemble toont voorliefde voor een opmerkelijke donkere klankkleur, met een hoofdrol voor de indrukwekkende cellist/gambist Daniel Yeadon.
