CANTATA - yet can I hear...
Pentatone, Bejun Mehta, SACD, George Frideric Handel, Antonio Vivaldi, Johann Sebastian Bach
This album contains a selection of solo cantatas, both secular and sacred, from the Italian, German, and English traditions. Including works by Handel, Vivaldi, and Bach in settings large and small, with obbligato instruments ranging from oboe to chimes, the magnificent cantatas on this album create a portrait of this intimately transcendent repertoire.
With CANTATA: yet can I hear..., the American countertenor Bejun Mehta releases his first album on PENTATONE. Hailed as "arguably the best countertenor in the world today" by the Süddeutsche Zeitung, Mehta here joins forces with the players of the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin, one of today's most renowned early music ensembles.
