JOHANN KUHNAU (1660-1722): 6 Biblische Sonaten.
Catalogue Number: 03N014
Reference: CD 2070
Description: Strange that a work as odd and instantly enjoyable as this is not recorded more often. The mid-90s Harmonia Mundi disc is out of print, leaving this as the only available version of these early examples of program music: musical representations of "David and Goliath", "Saul cured by David's powers of music", "Jacob's Wedding", "Hezekiah restored to health", "Gideon, deliverer of Israel" and "The death and burial of Jacob". Federico Caldara (harpsichord).
