Info zu Barnaby Smith: Bach

A new collection of JS Bach’s finest music for the alto voice, performed by leading British Baroque countertenor Barnaby Smith with Bojan Čičić and his Illyria Consort. Programmed in a cycle, the repertoire reflects the story from Candlemas, through the Passion to the Resurrection, demonstrating the unequalled beauty of Bach’s writing. “Bach has been a central figure in my personal musical journey. He is my greatest love as a musician, not only because of the repertoire, but his importance for the modern-day countertenor voice within that repertoire. From a singer’s perspective, Bach is a gift but it’s also the hardest thing you’ll ever do. When you’re singing, you feel totally subservient to the music. His genius feels truly beyond anything you can comprehend. The way he writes for the voice, the gestures within the music, and the opportunities he gives you as a singer are incredibly liberating. There is so much that you can bring to it as an orator, and that is an absolute gift.”

"The lovely tone and fullness of Smith’s countertenor was a real asset in ‘Cara sposa, amante cara’… an intuitive sense of the expressive and dramatic import of Handel’s melodic gestures….” (Opera Today)

"Bevan’s shine blended comfortingly with Smith’s softer warmth in the affectionate dialogue and running chains of thirds. The duo’s gleeful triplets were as light as air, but focused and true: “how happy we” indeed!...the da capo was even more felicitously florid, culminating in an extravagant cadenza in which the two voices wound around each other, higher and higher, an outpouring of happiness which overflowed into the concluding string postlude." (Opera Today)
