Bach's cantatas make use of an amazing diversity of instruments, both old and new. Among the 'new' instruments was the violoncello piccolo, a rare type of cello that was popular for a brief period at the beginning of the eighteenth century. The addition of a fifth, higher string provided the instrument a unique lightness and delicacy in the upper registers. This collection featuring cellist Ophelie Gaillard and the ensemble Pulcinella focuses on arias from Bach's cantatas that are scored for the violoncello piccolo. The arias are interspersed with instrumental transcriptions from the Sch++bler Chorales and the Orgelb++chlein. Vocal soloists include soprano Sandrine Piau, tenor Emiliano Gonzalez Toro and alto Christophe Dumaux

This uniquely cross-sectional approach to culture combines great art with great music, and examines the connections between the two. Each piece of music from the carefully chosen selection takes on a new dimension and provides a musical context to the work of leading painters and sculptors. This fascinating series, with a colour booklet including a chronology of the principal artistic and political developments of the period, broadens our view of the music itself. Few painters are as enigmatic as Johannes Vermeer (1632-1675). His works command admiration for their meticulous observation and the sensitive rendering of light and colour. But beneath the perfection of form the artist's meaning remains obscure, his figures eternally serene and passive, their thoughts a mystery. On this audio, the world of Vermeer is given a musical perspective with a carefully chosen selection of pieces by the finest composers of his time
