The Coffee Cantata (BA 10211) and the Peasant Cantata (BA 10212) both on librettos by Picander , are among the best-known and most frequently performed of Bach's secular cantatas.

Written in or around 1733, the Coffee Cantata deals humorously with the importance of the newly fashionable beverage. This is demonstrated in the soprano ariaAh, how sweet the coffee tastes, lovelier than a thousand kisses, milder than Muscatel.

The Peasant Cantata of 1742, Bach's last datable cantata, is a musical description of folk life.

It was composed as a tribute to Picander's superior, Carl Heinrich von Dieskau , who had inherited the family estate in 1742.

Both cantatas reveal Bach's mastery in their unusual subject-matter, formal design, and musical workmanship. Now they appear in separate editions based on theNew Bach Editionwith straightforward and easy-to-play piano reductions by Andreas Kohs.

  • November 28, 2012 fooled by the catalogue

    This product itself must be good, but I assumed this book contains both the flute and choral parts under the blue cover as indicated in this catalogue. I received the flute part only. I feel cheated.
