Quote from: 71 dB on September 03, 2022, 06:42:31 AMI am in the secular cantatas of the Rilling set (CD 64 with BWV 206, 207a and 207). Rilling is perhaps too "epic" with these and makes these sound like operas or oratorios rather than cantatas. I need to figure out who does Bach's secular cantatas closest to my taste. Rilling is also weaker in my opinion with the early (pre 1723) church cantatas. Suzuki on the other hand is good with the early Buxtehude/Bruhns-inspired church cantatas, but his serene style stops working well with the more modern Kuhnau-inspired Leipzig cantatas when more energy needs to be injected into the performance. I might even prefer Suzuki to Rilling with the secular cantatas, but I only have the first 2 volumes of Suzuki. I also think the few (5?) secular cantatas Naxos released in the 90's are to my liking, but I need to revisit those CDs.
