Quote from: Jeffrey Smith on July 01, 2013, 02:58:37 PMI would have to combine two answers. I have them all in multiple renditions (at a minimum, three) but a vast number of them I've only given too few listens to be able to know them in any meaningful way.
Quote from: KevinP on July 01, 2013, 01:53:47 PMHow many of Bach's cantatas do you own?
Quote from: KevinP on July 01, 2013, 01:53:47 PMAnd how familiar are you with them all? It's pretty easy to get them all in one large box set, but these sets are so large that it would take a very strong dedication to listen them all without getting sidetracked by other music.
Quote from: The new erato on July 15, 2013, 12:55:25 AM1 + 2. I have them all (most of them in two or more versions), have heard them all (most of them several times), but are familiar (whatever that means) with only a handful.
Quote from: 71 dB on April 16, 2022, 08:58:04 AMIt took me almost 20 years to collect the BIS/Suzuki recordings of Bach's Church Cantatas. The amount of those cantatas is pretty overhelming and a lot of the times I haven't even been in the mood for this type for music. I was for the most part collecting for future listening. It was always my plan that I start to listen to the cantatas more when I have them all. Now that I am more into classical music again, listening to these cantatas is good escapism from the ugly things happening in the World. So, I started listening to the cantatas in BWV order. I have listened to BWV1-4 today. I want to generate my own "essential cantatas list." Of those four cantatas BWV1 & BWV 4 are "essential" to me, while the other two are not.
Quote from: aligreto on April 16, 2022, 10:22:43 AMThat was a very good strategy by you at the time; good foresight.
Quote from: 71 dB on April 17, 2022, 09:59:04 AMIf I listen to four cantatas every day, this will take me a year!
Quote from: (: premont :) on April 17, 2022, 10:05:17 AMYou must mean every week.
Quote from: 71 dB on April 17, 2022, 09:59:04 AMToday I listened to Cantatas BVW 5-8. Of these BVW 8 gets my "essential" approval mainly because of its great opening choral. Good stuff! 0:)If I listen to four cantatas every week, this will take me a year! BIS had just begun their Suzuki cycle in the 90's. I was able to get the volume 1 at low price, because it was special issue with BIS CATALOGUE 1998 with extra sample tracks by other baroque composers. I liked the commitment, so I decided to collect all the volumes...
