As the title implies, the soprano and the baritone soloists in Bach’s three Dialogue Cantatas are partners in conversation. The works, also designated as concertos, feature sacred dialogues between the soul and Christ presented in glorious musical settings that allow the vocalists to shine. This recording features soprano Sophie Karthäuser and bass Michael Volle, backed by the Berlin Academy of Ancient Music in performances that set a new standard for these unique works in Bach’s output.
