Bach - Cantatas Volume 36

Four cantatas written for services during April 1725.

Bach, J S:

Cantata BWV42 'Am Abend aber desselbigen Sabbats'

Cantata BWV103 'Ihr werdet weinen und heulen'

Cantata BWV108 'Es ist euch gut, das ich hingehe'

Cantata BWV6 'Bleib bei uns, denn es will Abend werden'

Yukari Nonoshita ( soprano), Robin Blaze (counter-tenor), James Gilchrist (tenor) & Dominik Wörner (bass)

Bach Collegium Japan, Masaaki Suzuki

All four cantatas on the present disc deal with the interplay between the resurrected Christ and his disciples: Christ's first appearance in front of two of the disciples on the road to Emmaus (BWV 6), his visit to a meeting of the disciples, held in secret for fear of persecution (BWV 42), and his words of parting as he prepares to join his Father (BWV 103 and 108).

Gramophone Magazine

March 2008

“It is Ich weret weinen which immediately arrests the listener… in a compelling performance. This is Suzuki at his best: unequivocal direction of line and beauty of conception, enhanced by Robin Blaze and James Gilchrist in irrepressible form.”

BBC Music Magazine

November 2007


“…everyone of these cantatas find the composer on irresistible, heart-rending form. Happily, too, the responses of these excellent musicians leave little to be desired. Undeniably fine performances by John Eliot Gardiner (BWV 6), Philippe Herreweghe (BWV 42), and Karl Richter (BWV 108) must take second place beside readings of this order.”

MusicWeb International

“Throughout this ongoing series I have come to consider the magnificent direction of Masaaki Suzuki to be one of the greatest recording achievements of my lifetime”
