“Singing of great beauty from Bostridge, with expressive yet controlled playing from Biondi and his players.The contribution of Europa Galante is substantial. As usual, their playing under Fabio Biondi is neatly pointed and full of gestures which are firm without over-exaggeration.”

“Ian Bostridge, en digne partenaire du chef italien et en fusion totale avec les couleurs orchestrales, sublime le texte, le vit intensément. Séduisant et enivrant, ce CD est l’une des perles de l’année Bach”

An exceptional collaboration between the tenor Ian Bostridge and the violinist and conductor Fabio Biondi in 2 Bach cantatas, the famous “Ich habe genug”, and Bach’s only cantata for solo tenor, “Ich armer Mensch, ich Sundenknecht”.
These Cantatas presented at the prestigious BBC Proms in London were so appreciated by the Times: “Biondi captures every bright facet of this music…. and makes this interpretation a revelation. Bostridge’s “Schlummert ein” was the sweetest of lullabies.”.
