"Il Giardino Armonico's sheer sparkle gives it the edge."--New York Times
Die Schöpfung = The creation by Joseph Haydn( )

21 editions published between 1980 and 2012 in German and Undetermined and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This marvellous recording, sung in German, comes as a surprise, since Bernard Haitink is not obviously associated with Haydn. In fact he didn't tackle The Creation until 2011, when he was 82. He approaches this great choral masterpiece with wit, unhurried grandeur, riveting orchestral detail and forward momentum - in short, with just the acuity he brings to anything he conducts. (....) Gabriel (soprano Camilla Tilling), Uriel (tenor Mark Padmore), and Raphael (bass Hanno Müller-Brachmann). Choir, orchestra and soloists are on sparkling form in this live recording - an invigorating reminder, if any were needed, of Haydn's genius" (The Guardian)

Johannes-Passion = St. John Passion : BWV 245 by Johann Sebastian Bach( )

13 editions published between 1988 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The foundations of Marc Minkowski's career lie in Baroque music, and he has enjoyed a long relationship with Warner Classics, but this Johannes-Passion (St John Passion) is his first Bach for the label. The work's terse drama--here presented through just nine singers--is ideally suited to both his scrupulous musicianship and his keen sense of theatre. The French conductor describes Bach's great masterpieces as 'a journey you have to prepare for meticulously, over a long period of time. You come back from it like an explorer comes back from Everest or the moon--transformed'"

13 editions published between 1993 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Motetten by Johann Sebastian Bach( )

6 editions published between 1992 and 2008 in German and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bachs 6 Motetten BWV 225-230 gelten völlig zu Recht als die Gipfelwerke ihrer Gattung. Wie viele Meisterwerke ermöglichen sie unterschiedliche Interpretationsansätze. In diesem Fall reichen sie von nur einem Sänger pro Stimme bis zur chorischen Besetzung. Frieder Bernius tritt mit seiner Einspielung der Motetten den Beweis an, dass man sehr wohl auch mit einer chorischen Besetzung ein Maximum an Durchhörbarkeit und Textverständlichkeit erreichen kann. Er hat dafür allerdings auch einen herausragenden Chor zur Verfügung, den Kammerchor Stuttgart, der hier auf gewohnt hohem Niveau brilliert
German chamber music by Johann Sebastian Bach( )

9 editions published between 1980 and 1990 in No Linguistic content and Undetermined and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

H-Moll-Messe, BWV 232 by Johann Sebastian Bach( )

9 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in Latin and Undetermined and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cello suites, BWV 1007-1012 by Johann Sebastian Bach( )

7 editions published in 2009 in No Linguistic content and Undetermined and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Historical and iconographic evidence suggests that the Bach suites and other violoncello parts were intended to be performed on the viola or violoncello da spalla, which is played across the arm, rather than between the legs as with the modern violoncello
