American Bach Soloists Favorite Cantatas

“Bach to the Beginning” presents a renewed focus on the invaluable gems found in Bach’s cantatas. When ABS was founded in 1989, its mission included a primary emphasis on that repertoire of more than 200 works, each containing exquisite and dramatic music that often calls upon the virtuosity of individual members of an ensemble — singers and instrumentalists alike — to display their talents in the expression of each mini-drama that is at the heart and soul of the cantatas by Bach. For both cantata devotees and those new to this music, the passion and the soul-searching impetus found in these beautiful works are both compelling and exciting.
