BCW: Cantata BWV 42 - Revised & updated Discography

July 22, 2017:

The Solo Cantata BWV 42 "Am Abend aber desselbigen Sabbatas" (On the evening of the same sabbath) was composed by J.S. Bach in Leipzig for Quasimodogeniti [1st Sunday after Easter] of 1725. The cantatas was performed twice again in Leipzig on the same event in 1731 and c1742. The cantata is scored for soprano, alto, tenor & bass soloists; 4-part Chorus; and orchestra of 2 oboes, bassoon, 2 violins, viola, violoncello & continuo.

The discography pages of BWV 42 on the BCW have been revised and updated. See:
Complete Recordings (19): http://www.bach-cantatas.com/BWV42.htm
Recordings of Individual Movements (42): http://www.bach-cantatas.com/BWV42-2.htm
The revised discography includes many listening/watching options as part of the recording details. When you click a link to video/audio, a new window will open above the discography page and the video/audio will start to play.

I also put at the BCW Home Page: http://www.bach-cantatas.com/
2 audios & 2 videos of the cantata. A short description below the audio/video image is linked to the full details at the discography pages.

The number of recordings of individual movements has almost doubled since the previous version of these discography pages. I had to add many performer discographies & performer biographies, as you can see at the page "What New on the BCW?": http://www.bach-cantatas.com/New/index.htm

I believe this is the most comprehensive discography of this cantata. If you are aware of a recording of BWV 42 missing from these pages, or want to correct/add details of a recording already presented on the BCW, please do not hesitate to inform me.

You can also read on the BCW the recent discussion of the cantata in the BCML (4th round): http://www.bach-cantatas.com/BWV42-D5.htm

Enjoy,
