UNE CANTATE IMAGINAIRE
NATHALIE STUTZMANN – ORFEO 55
(2012, Deutsche Grammophon / Universal)
Nathalie Stutzmann imagined an "ideal" cantata from the most beautiful pages composed by Jean-Sébastien Bach: sung tunes of course, but also instrumental and even choral pieces.
Among Bach's immense and magnificent repertoire, Nathalie Stutzmann wanted to "pick a bouquet of the most beautiful flowers". Airs of bravery or tenderness, anger, love, fear or despair, all expressive registers meet in Nathalie Stutzmann's "Imaginary Cantata", which gives birth to a new work, a disc constructed from one breath and in one piece.
Patrick performs among others the piccolo cello solo in the aria Jesus ist ein guter Hirt.
