Dimitri Terzakis: Visionen

Dimitri Terzakis: Visionen


Terzakis:

legetos

sappho-zyklus

a une madone

visionen, die schalen des zorns

sonate infernale


Karla Beyer (violin), Lucie Leker (violin), Brigitte Fassbaender (narrator), Andreas Kersten (piano), Kolja Lessing (violin), Ute Loeck (narrator), Christiane Lorenz (flute), Tatjana Masurenko (viola), Andres Maupoint (piano) & Antigone Papoulkas (soprano)

Thomanerchor Leipzig & Münchner Rundfunkorchester, Georg Christoph Biller & Ulf Schirmer

For almost half a century Dimitri Terzakis has been living in Germany. As a student of the composition class of Bernd Alois Zimmermann, he very quickly chose a quite individual style – and got back to the roots of the music of his native country, Greece. Terzakis delved into the tonal system of ancient Greece and discovered undreamt of possibilities in the formation of melody and tonality beyond major and minor. Micro-intervals and sliding pitches as well as the realization of the finest dynamic nuances are important for melodic flexibility in his music.

The violin duo Legetos from 1988 (which begins this programme) – with its two-voice linearity and fascinating spatial effects – offers a characteristic look into the originality of Terzakis’ sound world.

All the other works on this CD are in different ways inspired by literature in different ways. In his Sappho Cycle, Terzakis draws on a number of fragments by this ancient poet and, at the end, on a complete poem that was recently discovered.

The instrumental reflection on the poem A une Madone from Les Fleurs du mal by Charles Baudelaire is not programme music, but rather a musical representation of the poem's peculiar atmosphere which comes into being through the alternation of eroticism and the demonic.

Unusual and extraordinarily interesting in terms of sound is the instrumentation of the choral work Visionen, where the text source is the Apocalypse of St. John. Here, along with the choir, there is not only a narrator, but also a solo viola.

With his Sonate infernale, Terzakis refers, on the one hand, to Dante’s Divine Comedy, which inspired many composers in the past. On the other hand, his choice of the traditional genre of the violin-piano sonata opened new ways to shape sound in the form of a dialogue.

Bach, J S: Christmas Oratorio (highlights)


Ingeborg Danz (alto), Martin Petzold (tenor)

St Thomas’s Boys Choir Leipzig, Gewandhausorchester, Georg Christoph Biller

For centuries, the sound of Christmas has been imagined as the music of the angels – and the grand choruses of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Christmas Oratorio glow with this festivity and joyful brilliance. In short: everything that is associated with Christmas is captured in sound in this piece.

“Excerpt from Bach's Christmas Oratorio, the highlight being the vibrant sound of the Thomanerchor, the all-boy choir of the church where Bach was cantor. Classy support from the Gewandhausorchester.” BBC Music Magazine, Christmas 2014 ****

Bach, J S: Mass in B minor, BWV232


Reglint Bühler (soprano), Susanne Krumbiegel (mezzo‐soprano), Susanne Langner (alto), Martin Lattke (tenor) & Markus Flaig (bass)

Thomanerchor Leipzig & Freiburger Barockorchester (playing on authentic period instruments), Georg Christoph Biller

The Mass in B Minor, Bach's last completed vocal work as well as the climax of his creativity, reveals the overwhelming wealth of his compositional skills. In the history of music it ranks highly, as the "Montblanc of church music" (Franz Liszt) ‐ composed during Bach's time as cantor at the St. Thomas Church in Leipzig. Performed in this important composer’s domain, the Mass in B Minor casted a spell over its listeners as the crowning glory of the Leipzig Bach Festival in 2013: Under the direction of Bach's successor Georg Christoph Biller, the St. Thomas Boys Choir and an outstanding soloist quintet perform with the prestigious Freiburg Baroque Orchestra, playing on authentic period instruments.

“The Thomanerchor is superb. Trebles match the confidence and facility of any adult choir...The Freibarockorchester matches their fluency and stylistic sensitivity...In the arias, the communication between instruments and voices is striking” BBC Music Magazine, June 2014 *****

“while this may not be the most authoritative account of this much-loved work, the sense of occasion that a live recording imparts is palpable; so, for that matter, is the sense of focused music-making, tempered by a discreet but distinct camaraderie...Sound and visuals function well.” Gramophone Magazine, July 2014
