Description: The texts of the 47-minute wedding serenata »Liebe, was ist schöner als die Liebe« exhibit mirthful exuberance and belong to the most original and wittiest musical creations of all by this composer. The serenata has the form of a disputatio, a dramatic dialogue in which an advocate of marriage (Ametas, soprano) and a skeptic (Crito, tenor) are in disagreement about the usefulness of the institution. The album also includes the solo cantata “Lieben will ich,” in which the imponderables of love are celebrated in witty free texts, and the cantata “Der Weiberorden,” which quite clearly was composed in conjunction with a wedding feast and in lighter tones enables to join the young bride in joyous anticipation of her future married life. German-English texts. Julia Kirchner (soprano), Georg Poplutz (tenor), La Stagione Frankfurt; Michael Schneider.
