Cantata BWV 21 Ich hatte viel Bekümmernis Discussions - Part 2. Continue from Part 1. Discussions in the Week of July 9, 2000 (1st round). Aryeh Oron wrote (July 11, 2000): Background. Hans-Joachim Rotzsch (1981-1983) Like Richter and Rilling (2nd recording), the main assets of Rotzsch recording are his vocal soloists Augér, Schreier, and Lorenz. To this he adds slightly quicker tempos, quicker than we are used to expect from him, and more intimate and light approach. His choir is also smaller than that of Richter, and they sing with more sensitiveness. For many of the Bach cantatas lovers, BWV 21 is already ‘their song’ - the diamond of the crown. And as always, I would like to hear other opinions, regarding the above mentioned performances, or other recordings.

I own a set on Berlin classics with Former GDR light HIP-pish cantatas from Leipzig with Hans Joachim Rotzsch conducting and singers like the great Arleen Auger and Peter Schreier. I also own separate cantatas from the t cycle, from Suzuki and from Karl Richter. Each has something of beauty in it, but Ton Koopman is my all time hero in Bach, be it in vocal, orchestral and organ music.
