Treat yourself to a belated Christmas gift of J.S Bach
with Iestyn Davies’ stunning new recording of Cantatas 54, 82 & 170,
released on the Hyperion label. Iestyn joins Jonathan Cohen and his superb
Arcangelo ensemble to perform the three works.
The Telegraph have described Iestyn as “an absolute treat”, declaring that no other counter-tenor currently “sounds more warmly radiant or tonally secure”.
Of the recording, Brian Wilson on MusicWeb International
said, “If I say that these recordings of Cantatas Nos. 170 and 82 can hold up their heads in the most exalted company … that’s really all that need be said.”
Release date: 30 December 2016.
