Koopman - Vol. 8 (and 9?)

Jane Newble
wrote (January 3, 2000):
Some weeks ago I bought Koopman's cantatas Vol.8, and thanks to the 'festive' days, I have only now had time to listen to it. I like it very much...my first impression. My question is, does anyone know if Vol.9 is out? I saw something about it somewhere, but I may be wrong. I have been playing BWV 65 over and over again, as it is the appropriate one for this week, and it's wonderful. But I do wish Herreweghe had recorded it with my all-time favorite bass Peter Kooy. Just wishful thinking!

Cor Knops wrote (January 3, 2000):
(To Jane Newble) Dear Jane, Yes Vol.9 has been released quite a long time now (in Europe, though I'm not sure if this goes for the US too).

Below is a copy of the message I sent to this list on October 27, 1999.

The "Complete J.S. Bach Cantatas Volume 9" has just been released!

On this 3-CD set the next cantatas are recorded:
BWV 48 Ich elender Mensch, wer wird mich erl=F6sen
BWV 154 Mein liebster Jesu ist verloren
BWV 138 Warum betrubst du dich, mein Herz
BWV 173a Durchlauchster Leopold

BWV 37 Wer de glaubet und getauft wird
BWV 153 Schau, lieber Gott, wie meine Feind
BWV 166 Wo gehest du hin?
BWV 86 Wahrlich, wahrlich, ich sage euch
BWV 70 Wachet! Betet! Betet! Wachet!

BWV 66 Erfreut euch, ihr Herzen
BWV 194 Hochsterwunschtes Freudenfest

Wim Huisjes wrote (January 4, 2000):
[To Jane Newble] Hello Jane, Well, you can't win them all. But let's face it: both Mertens and Kooy are hard to beat. Try to get the Dutch release of Vol.9: it comes with an entertaining and informative booklet: comments from Maarten 't Hart on his favorite cantatas and a transcript of a conversation between 't Hart and Koopman (not an interview). Erato added some useful information on releases yet to come.

Then have Vol.9 and all the Kruidvat stuff sent over to England. You're missing a lot!

Jane Newble wrote (January 4, 2000):
Sorry about that. I think that was the week when I had problems with the PC, and I didn't get the message. Thanks a lot, I will also take the advice of Wim Huisjes and get the Dutch edition.

Kirk McElhearn wrote (October 27, 1999):
Two questions on this set -
It seems they are in chronological order, is that correct?
When will the set be completed?

Wim Huisjes wrote (October 29, 1999):
(To Kirk McElhearn) First question: yes, and (unlike Hanssler in their 66 or so CD release, Erato is quite consistent up till now, though I think they sort of squeezed in the secular cantatas in volumes 2 through 5.

Second question: the plan was 2004, and they seem to be reasonably on schedule. The project started in 1996. He's about halfway now (9 out of 20 volumes and quite a bit of what is going to be released has already been recorded).

BTW: re: some recent discussion about BWV 134a: it will be in volume 10.

Other "rare numbers" still to come:

BWV 120a: in Vol.18
BWV 30a: in Vol.20
BWV 80 + alternative parts: in Vol.20

J. Leone wrote (October 29, 1999):
One question: how did you get this information? Is this info available to the public somehow (i.e. via the web)?

Wim Huisjes wrote (October 29, 1999):
Haven't checked the Website: www.tonkoopman.nl. It might be on there (or maybe on Warner's site).

The Dutch release of Vol. 9 came with a nice bonus: an informative and entertaining booklet, compiled by a former biology professor, now (in The Netherlands and Belgium) a famous author, talented (amateur) harpsichord and organ player and about the most fanatic Bach-ophile in the country.

At the end of the booklet Erato added some useful information (cross references re: volumes 1 through 8, a catalogue of all volumes ordered by BWV number, ordering of cantatas by liturgical calendar, concert, rehearsal and recording dates up till volume 14) and some info on all volumes yet to be released.

Ton Koopman's Website gives you a.o. the opportunity to ask for information. If you have a specific question I might be able to answer (i.g. exact contents of all volumes), don't hesitate to ask.
