Iconic Bach Cantatas 60cd Set Reissued

Leonhardt and Harnoncourt sparkle in Bach Cantatas The iconic and ground breaking set of complete Bach Sacred Cantatas has now been reissued. Bach expert Nicholas Anderson writes: "While the Early Music debates of the 1970s and 1980s gathered momentum, Nikolaus Harnoncourt and Gustav Leonhardt spearheaded the revival of period instruments in hostorically aware performance. Their most extended and enduring legacy is the complete survey of Bach's sacred cantatas which they began in 1971 and completed in 1988. Their shared and inspiring endeavour, often highlighting divergent approaches, has illuminated the path towards a new understanding of Bach's music for younger interpreters and will forever be regarded as one of the grest pioneering events in the history of recording."
