One of the peculiarities of today's concert world is that from the rich tradition provided by the former genre of the Passion of Christ set to music, only two works have been able to establish temselves permanently – the two monumental Passions by Johann Sebastian Bach. The Passion Oratorio by Johann Ernst Bach, the nephew, godson and pupil of Johann Sebastian, is one of the lesser-known works. To this day, J.E. Bach's own vocal works have not been documented, indeed, they have not even been completely catalogued. It is possible with some difficulty to trace about 20 compositions. In order to be able to correctly assess his musical achievement, reference must also be made to the other music of Johann Ernst Bach's day and age. Despite his isolation in Eisenach in Thuringia, he was in no way cut off from the contemporary musical developments taking place in the large musical centres of Berlin, Dresden and Hamburg. With his explicit commitment to sacred music, Johann Ernst Bach occupies an extremely isolated position among the Protestant German composers of the second half of the 18th century. For Carl Philipp Emanuel and Wilhelm Friedemann Bach, for example, the production of sunday cantatas was
one of the more tiresome duties associated with their professional existence. On this point, Johann Ernst Bach took a very different view. Although the religious works of both Telemann and J. S. Bach were, in his opinion, "admirable masterpieces", he strongly criticised the decay of sacred music during his own generation and demanded that this be counteracted by "artistic and regular styles of composition".

GIOVANNI BATTISTA PERGOLESI is one of those extraordinary musical figures who must be credited both with being outstanding creative geniuses and dying an untimely death. In his life-story, as in his epoch-making work, he has much in common with Mozart and Richard Wagner even spoke of him as a "génie supérieur". What is more, only five years in all were granted him for creative composition before he succumbed at an early age to an insidious tuberculosis. Scarcely anyone, perhaps, has described Pergolesi’s vocal works more splendidly and with more understanding than the philosopher and pedagogue Jean-Jacques Rousseau, author of the Dictionnaire de musique that was extremely widespread in the 19th century, when he wrote: "Here everything contributes to deepening the effect of the text: the harmony serves only to shape it more forcefully, the accompaniment embellishes it without distorting it. in a word, the whole work of art simultaneously communicates one melody to the ear and only one idea to the mind.“ This CD offers 3 Masterpieces recorded by the long time Duo REGINA KLEPPER and MARTINA BORST, accompanied by the BAMBERG STRING QUARTET.
