Marc Minkowski's first recording of Bach. What a spectacular debut!


Because Marc Minkowski has been such an important figure on the early-music front for so long, one can't help approach his recording with particular anticipation. It doesn't trump the best of the others (Bach Collegium Japan on Bis), but occupies its own niche. Minkowski is interested in the piece's architectural attributes, which he apprehends with vocally pure, often minimally inflected performances from 10 soloists instead of a conventional choir. But when emotion is clearly called for, he delivers it with minimum restraint. Also, his soloists are often singers you'd want to hear under most circumstances.

Contralto Nathalie Stutzmann's "Agnus Dei" is one of the most emotionally riveting versions ever recorded.
