Why a recording of Bach's Inventions and Sinfonias in altered order? The 1723 fair copy of both the Inventions and the Sinfonias has the keys ordered according to the ascending scale (C major / C minor; D major / D minor etc.). There is however no compelling reason to perform them that way; there are musically more meaningful and attractive sequences. Thomas Ragossnig presents one of them on this CD for the first time. He mixes the Inventions and Sinfonias in the same key and performs them in groups of two or four.

Simone Dinnerstein has been described as “a throwback to such high priestesses of music as Wanda Landowska and Myra Hess” by Slate magazine and praised by TIME for her “arresting freshness and subtlety”. The New York-based pianist gained an international following because of the remarkable success of her recording of Bach’s Goldberg Variations which she raised the funds to record. Released in 2007, it ranked No. 1 on the US Billboard Classical Chart in its first week of sales and was named to many ‘Best of 2007’ lists including those of The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, and The New Yorker. Her follow-up album, The Berlin Concert, also gained the No. 1 spot on the Chart.

Giovanni Battista Buonamente (ca. 1595 – 1642) was an Italian composer and violinist in the early Baroque era. He served the Gonzagas in Mantua until about 1622, and from about 1626 to 1630 served the Holy Roman Emperor Ferdinand II, Holy Roman Emperor in Vienna. Notably, in 1627 he played for the coronation festivities in Prague of Ferdinand III, son of the emperor. He then served as the violinist of Madonna della Steccata church in Parma. After a short service there, he arrived at his final position in 1633 of maestro di cappella at Assisi.

The Venetian-born composer Antonio Caldara (1670-1736) had held the position of Vizekapell-meister to the Habsburg emperor Charles VI for nearly 15 years when, in 1730, Ketro Metastasio moved from Rome to Vienna to take up an appointment as Poeta di sua Maesta Cesarea e Cattolica at the imperial court. In that time Caldara had set nearly 40 opera and oratorio libret¬ti, and before his death on 27 December 1736, he was to provide the first settings of nine of Metastasio's opera and oratorio texts. Among the oratorios was La Passione di Gesu Crista, Signer Nostra.

A contemporary of Buxtehude and Lully, Alessandro Stradella (ca.1639-1682) remained in Italy his entire life. He benefited from important patrons in Rome, including Christina of Sweden. Here in the mid-seventeenth century, with the theatres being closed for over a decade, the cantata was at its height. Like many of the contemporary cantatas this particular Cantata for Christmas Eve was intended for performances at the palaces of the nobility. Only a hand full of musicians are needed for this charmingly intimate piece: three voices, 2 violins and basso continuo.
