Bach, J S: Mass in B minor, BWV232

Bach, J S: Mass in B minor, BWV232


Ute Selbig, Susanne Krumbiegel, Elisabeth Wilke, Martin Petzold & Gotthold Schwarz

Thomanerchor Leipzig & Leipziger Barockorchester, Georg Christoph Biller

“A new sonic benchmark – for Bach in and from Leipzig”, this is what the Leipziger Volkszeitung called the final concert of the 2006 Bachfest, in which the Thomanerchor Leipzig had performed the Mass in B minor. Rondeau Production has finally re-issued a recording of the Mass. On this venture, the Thomaner are joined by the Leipziger Barockorchester and renowned soloists. In his preface to the liner notes, Thomaskantor Georg Christoph Biller values the Mass as “a highly focussed summary of the Christian beliefs, as well as an architecturally perfect structure. The Mass in B minor is the best example of how timeless and time-related elements come together and complement each other.” The Mass, which is often referred to as Johann Sebastian Bach’s opus summum, is also the work, in which the great Thomaskantor draws a conclusion of his life as a composer.

Dimitri Terzakis: Visionen

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.

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 ****
