Stradivaria, Daniel Cuiller
Born in Moravia, Franz Xaver Richter worked at the Court of Kempfen then of Mannheim as "chamber composer". During this period, he composed more than 80 symphonies, concertos, as well as many chamber music works, including string quartets. In 1769 he was appointed Choirmaster at Strasbourg Cathedral. He then proceeded to produce an impressive catalogue of religious works that includes 39 masses, 50 cantatas, 3 Requiems, etc., and, in 1773, he composed Leçons des Ténèbres or The Lamentations of Jeremiah to commemorate Christ's passion during the days preceding Easter. A veritable link between Baroque and Classical, Richter was one of those composers who pioneered a new, pre-classical symphonic style, admired throughout Europe for its instrumental virtuosity, dynamic effects, varied instrumentation, and a marked use of the winds. Cypres welcomes this first project of the ensemble Stradivaria with soloists of the first rank that make this CD a real event.

Barockorchester Stuttgart, Kammerchor Stuttgart, Frieder Bernius
In the St. Matthew Passion, Johann Sebastian Bach created one of the most significant Protestant church music works. Frieder Bernius, together with the Kammerchor Stuttgart and the Barockorchester Stuttgart have now recorded this composition. These prizewinning experts of historically informed performance, with their filigree sound, master this monumental composition which portrays Christ’s passion with incomparable musical, spiritual and emotional intensity. With this new recording, the ensembles, together with renowned soloists including Tilman Lichdi, demonstrate once more that their fine, flexible lines make them ideal interpreters of Bach’s music. Bernius’s recording is based on the new edition by the acknowledged Bach expert Klaus Hofmann, published by Carus-Verlag. It is no secret that Bach’s original score and parts were full of ambiguities and contradictions. Once again, Bernius sets new standards with respect to performance and artistry by following Hofmann’s approach, who presented his edition in accordance with current findings of Bach research, taking into account numerous impulses contributed by historical performance practice.
