Bach: Magnificat, Cantata BWV 31 & Easter Oratorio

Easter Oratorio BWV249


Friederike Sailer (soprano), Margarete Bence (alto), Fritz Wunderlich (tenor) & August Messthaler (bass)

Stuttgarter Bach-Chor & Stuttgarter Bach-Orchester, Marcel Couraud

In 1956 Fritz Wunderlich together with colleagues Friederike Sailer, Margarete Bence and August Messthaler set down complete versions of three Bach choral works – the Magnificat, the Cantata BWV 31 and the Easter Oratorio. They were recorded for Philips in France. Both, the oratorio and the cantata Der Himmel lacht, Die Erde jubilieret (‘The heavens laugh, the Earth rejoices’) were written for use at Easter, and together with the Magnificat are some of Bach’s most joyous outpourings of sacred choral music. Then, as now, it is Wunderlich’s presence on these recordings that has and probably will inspire purchasers to acquire these recordings, with the 25-year-old Wunderlich then in the full flower of his youth, shortly after his professional debut at age 25. At the time he was under contract to the Württemberg Staatstheater in Stuttgart, and on the brink on international fame.

These recordings date from 1956, before it had become common to perform Bach’s music using period instruments (or copies thereof) and in a ‘historically-informed’ style. Nevertheless, Marcel Couraud’s readings have much to recommend them. This French conductor, born in 1912, had a superb education. Charles Munch instructed

him in conducting and Nadia Boulanger – the woman who taught so many of the twentieth century’s composers – instructed him in composition. He was also trained as an organist. Although most of his career was spent in France, where he died in 1986, in 1954 he came to Stuttgart to conduct what at that time was known as a ‘Bach Choir’ and ‘Bach Orchestra.’

Stravinsky: Persephone

Stravinsky: Persephone

sung in German


Fritz Wunderlich (tenor) & Doris Schade (narrator)

Chor des Süddeutschen Rundfunks, Chor des Hessischen Rundfunks, Schwanheimer Kinderchor & Sinfonie-Orchesters des Hessischen Rundfunks, Dean Dixon

Tenor legend Fritz Wunderlich and the great German actress Doris Schade in Stravinsky’s rarely performed lyrical melodrama – a unique document from 1960.

Fritz Wunderlich sings Stravinsky – a rare combination! Not only is the combination of singer and work an unusual one, but the work itself also is, and has always been, a rarely performed part of Stravinsky’s oeuvre. The part of Eumolpius, Greek for “he who sings beautifully”, in Igor Stravinsky’s Perséphone could have become Fritz Wunderlich’s calling card if he had sung it more than the once, in 1960, for the Hessische Rundfunk in Frankfurt am Main. Dean Dixon, who was the first Afro-American to become chief conductor of a German Radio Symphony Orchestra in the following year, had programmed this virtually unknown jewel by Stravinsky. The great German actress Doris Schade took on the speaking part of Perséphone. This lyrical melodrama, based on a text by André Gide, was written during Stravinsky’s neo-classical period, its subject matter being the ancient classical myth of death and re-birth. The rewarding tenor role of the priest live recording 1960

Eumolpius presents Fritz Wunderlich at the pinnacle of his art. This live recording of this rarely performed work is a unique document and closes a gap in the discographic legacy of the singer who died so prematurely.
