"The two voices are ideally cast. Mieke (Mojca Erdmann) sings with a charming simplicity as she resists and then gives way to the advances of her rustic beau, Dominik Wörner. He sings with great character, a mischievous inner grin seeming to colour his tone and clarify his diction" BBC Music

"Suzuki gets into the swing of this burlesque immediately with deft timing, organic contrasts of bucolic temperament and a winning characterisation of the 'base and popular' viewed through a courtly prism. The director's own keyboard playing adds to the intimate and rolling spontaneity, surely Bach's most tantalising example of what opera might have afforded him" Gramophone
