Comments: This is the third part of Bachiana series, whose previous releases are Bachiana and Bachiana Double Concerto, even if it does not bear the name. The solo cantata of Viennese composer Francesco Bartolomeu Conti also presented here was transcribed by Johann Sebastian Bach in 1716 and played a short time later in Cothen. Johann Christoph Bach's "Ach, daß ich Wassers g'nug hätte" was already recorded by Reinhard Goebel in the Alt-Bachisches Archiv recording, with David Cordier as a soloist.
