In 1737, at the peak of his career, Bach received a devastating public critique of his work by his former pupil, Adolph Scheibe. According to Scheibe, a son of the Enlightenment, Bachs music was confused and turgid to the extent that this excess of art bordered on the unapproachable. It seems incredible today that any such criticisms could be levelled at the greatest composer of all. And yet, given the highly-crafted art music of the Second Suite dances, the tightly structured figural density of Sinfonia BWV146, or the extreme penitentiality of Cantatas BWV199 and 82a, it is interesting that Bach remains one of the most widely popular of all classical composers.

International Record Review

the playing is vital, musically assertive and rewarding and is perfectly complemented by the excellent Channel Classics recording. () () Zomer partners a wonderfully perky oboe in a dance of captivating happiness and pure joy, providing a lively finish to a lovely disc.

BBC Music Magazine

Florilegium play it with touching gentleness, a filigree of one-to-a-part strings, Ashley Solomon’s soft-toned baroque flute, and Johannette Zomer subtly matching vocal tone and vibrato to every nuance of the text.

Audiophile Addition

Excellent British Bach performed with grace and vitality. () these performers are sprightly, idiomatic, assured, and obviously relished by the players, Rarely I’ve heard a more sensitive ‘Ich habe genug’, and there are no faults to be found here. The sound is most excellent – decent spread among the instruments and speakers a lovely floating distinction that supported the soprano nicely, and a program of top quality and interest. What are you waiting for?

Gramophone

Johannette Zomer and the exquisite accompaniment of Florilegium, and in particular the flute-playing of Ashley Solomon. () () the sound – as one expects with Channel Classics’ state of the art-super-audio recordings – aspired to a direct emotional energy, most effectively realised here in Zomer’s warmly controlled middle register,

Classic FM

Florilegium has that wonderful knack of making everything sound so intimate – and this album is no exception.

Klassik.com

Mit Florilegium steht ihr dabei eine ambitionierte Instrumentelformation zur Seite, die ein perfekter Interpret anspruchsvoller Raritten und Entdeckungen ist. (…) (…) In der Orchestersuite phrasiert sich Ashley Solomon als Solist und liefert eine bezeugende Leistung mit differenzierter Tongebung und nuancenreichem Ausdruck ab.

Radio WDR3

ein perfekte Balance von musikalischer Klarheit, feinsten Nuancen und beseeltem Ausdruck.

Mirkische Allgemeine

Ich habe genug – denn davon bekommt man nie genug. Mirkische Allgemeine

www.audio-muziek.nl

een stralend voorbeeld van volmaakt gezongen sopraanpartijen en buitengewoon goed verzorgd orkestspel

TOM

De nieuwe combinatie met Johannette Zomer pakt voortreffelijk uit. Haar timbre, dat alsmaar aan warmte wint zonder hoogte te verliezen, mengt voorbeeldig. Terwijl de musici elkaar wat betreft tempi, articulatie en dynamiek prima aanvoelen. Grote klasse

NRC

Uitzonderlijk fraai en afwisselend is de opname van de cantatas Ich habe genug en Mein Herze schwimmt in Blut van sopraan Johannette Zomer bij het onvolprezen Engelse barokorkest Florilegium, dat hier ook schittert in de Orkestsuite nr. 2.

Luister

Het maakt helemaal niet uit dat we van deze muziek tientallen uitvoeringen in de kast hebben staan. Want wat wordt hier geweldig muziek gemaakt! Johannette heeft zich bij Jos van Veldhoven al bewezen als ideale Bach-vertolkster en doet dat ook hier. Dit is kortom een Bach cd om heel vaak te draaien.

Toccata

packenden und spannenden BachInterpretation (…) (…) Johannette Zomer brilliert mit Ensemble Florilegium!! (…)
