John W Barker
American Record Guide, September 2012

It is the choral writing in these three scores that most catches my ear. Johann Ernst chose to avoid the severe contrapuntalism of his uncle and mentor, preferring a more flowing and beautifully shaped polyphony, with dramatic undercurrents…

Hermann Max can always draw on fine soloists: the team of Schlick, Cordier, Pregardien, and Varcoe is particularly fine in the Passion. Schlick’s singing is lovely, and Pregardien is really fresh and outstanding in both the Passion and the Psalm Ode. Choral and orchestral forces are polished and ever-reliable, under Max’s knowing and stylish leadership.

If you are curious about lesser-known Bachs, and if you missed this set last time, do grab this now. © 2012 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide online
