J.S. BACH / C.P.E. BACH / J.C. BACH
The Bach Family: Magnificats
Arcangelo, Jonathan Cohen (conductor)

[ Hyperion / CD ]

Release Date: Friday 16 February 2018

No fewer than three Bachs - father and two sons - and three wonderful versions of the Magnificat written over the course of the Eighteenth century: one setting very familiar, the other two much less so.

JOÉLLE HARVEY soprano OLIVIA VERMEULEN mezzo-soprano
IESTYN DAVIES countertenor
THOMAS WALKER tenor THOMAS BAUER baritone

Gramophone Award Nomination 2018 - Choral

"You would be hard-pressed to find a more illuminating disc than this latest offering from Arcangelo…There's nothing overfamiliar about the captivating freshness and buoyancy that both chorus and instrumentalists bring to a much-loved warhorse…Cohen plays the theatricality of the JC Bach to the hilt, while acknowledging the homage to JS in the opening of CPE's setting." BBC Music Choral & Song Choice March 2018

"For [JS's] perennial masterpiece, Jonathan Cohen and Arcangelo snap into their festive sparklers with grand authority and lithe ebullience, sweeping effortlessly from verse to verse with considerable purpose...Arcangelo's voyage into the sons' Magnificats is no less well paced or astutely textured...Cohen and Arcangelo bring us an illuminated Bachian constellation of three canticles colliding in captivating relief." Gramophone Editor's Choice Feb 2018
