    Did you participate in this production? Nice performance. Good to hear some polyphony from this composer. Just wish he had left out the solo acrobatics.

    No solo acrobatics = no Mozart. ;-)
  • Nice singing.
    Nice playing.
    Unfortunate imbalance betwixt choir and orchestra - in the orchestra's favour.

    I would never have guessed that this was the Bach Collegium Japan, whose Bach is typically almost more German than the Germans'. This recording lacks their normal crystaline precision and clarity, intonation and diction.

    I thought so, too.
