A HAPPY REUNION OF BACH MATERIALS

 

 

By Culturekiosque Staff

LEIPZIG, GERMANY, 17 FEBRUARY 2010 — Next month, an autograph score, original performing materials and an original libretto of a Bach cantata will be published for the first time in a single facsimile edition. "Allein zu dir, Herr Jesu Christ" (Alone in thee, Lord Jesus Christ) BWV 33, the choral cantata for the 13th Sunday after Trinity (3 September 1724) has been edited as "Band V" of Faksimile-Reihe Bachscher Werke und Schriftstücke (Facsimile series of Bach's works and documents) by the Bach-Archiv Leipzig and the Bärenreiter Verlag Kassel.

Scored for bass, alto, and tenor soloists, chorus, a pair of oboes, strings, and basso continuo, the six-movement sacred cantata in A Minor is among the very few works where all the relevant materials for the first performance have been preserved. The composer's score is kept at the Scheide Library in Princeton Univeristy, the vocal and instrumental performing parts at the Bach-Archiv Leipzig and the original libretto at the Russian National Library in St. Petersburg. The new facsimile edition includes notes and commentary in German and English by the Bach scholars Christoph Wolff and Peter Wollny. The limited edition is available for purchase via Internet from the Bach Archiv Leipzig at: www.bach-leipzig.de

J.S. Bach: Inventions & Sinfonias BWV 772–801
French Suite V in G Major BWV 816  
Till Fellner, piano
ECM Records (April 2009
)

Till Fellner is a young Austrian pianist whose interpretations of baroque and classical literature are notable for their intellectual poise and artistic integrity. Rather than vulgar showmanship or mind-numbing virtuosity, he offers a rare glimpse into the art and style of classical Viennese performance practice. For those reared on the Russian romantic piano tradition, Mr. Fellner's thoughtful interpretations can seem a bit restrained. Be that as it may, whether in Bach's Two and Three-part Inventions or Beethoven's late piano sonatas (current concert tour cycle), his playing often conveys embedded codes of Viennese gesture, cerebral poise and a rhetorical power that, in earlier times, defined accepted notions of what it was to have "class".
