Purcell: The Indian Queen, Z630

Purcell: The Indian Queen, Z630


Peter Harvey (bass), Sally Bruce-Payne (alto), Steven Liley (tenor), Edward Caswell (bass), Tessa Bonner (soprano), Catherine Bott (soprano)

The Purcell Simfony, The Purcell Simfony Voices

“If The Indian Queen is less ambitious than the other three 'operas' there's the sure touch here of the composer at his most mature and adept. The Prologue, in which he had the rare opportunity to set an extended dialogue, is beautifully balanced, and the music in Act 3 – when Zempoalla's illfated love is prophesied by Ismeron the magician in 'Ye twice 10,000 deities' – ranks alongside the finest moments in Purcell's output. The smallscale character of the work, compared to its siblings, is taken a stage further by the Purcell Simfony, which employs a minute chamber-size group of four strings, doubling oboe and recorder, single trumpet and drums. The soloists sing with airy restraint but each responds to these Hilliard-esque proportions with a rhythmic buoyancy and direct intimacy which projects a finely gauged overall conception of the work.
If the expressive power of the music is at times rather glazed, there's a sure atmosphere which is captured by recorded sound that's both warm and yet never imposing. The ensemble isn't always first-rate but there's nothing too worrisome and the instrumental numbers are elegantly shaped. Tessa Bonner gets the lion's share of the solo soprano numbers, ahead of the more colourful Catherine Bott, though the former's comparatively brittle sound has a crystalline quality which suits Catherine Mackintosh's consistent, if austere strategy.
In short, this release is consistently touching, one which in a paradoxical way gets under the skin despite the recessed emotional climate it conveys.”

Richter, F X: Leçons des ténèbres (The Lamentations of Jeremiah)


Isabelle Poulenard (soprano), Pascal Bertin (alto), Gilles Ragon (tenor), Peter Harvey (bass)

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.

Handel: Solomon

Handel: Solomon


“Solomon is universally recognised as one of Handel's finest masterpieces, not only with magnificent choruses, but more importantly containing rapturous love music, nature imagery, affecting emotion and the vividly portrayed dramatic scene of Solomon's famous judgement over the disputed infant. This is in fact the only dramatic part of the oratorio; and each of the female characters appears in only one of the work's three parts. Paul McCreesh, responsive to the work's stature, employs an orchestra of about 60 (including a serpent as the bass of the wind group) and presents the oratorio in the original 1749 version, full and uncut.
It's been argued that even in so splendid a work Handel was fallible enough to include some dead wood. McCreesh, however, stoutly defends the original structural balance. In one respect, though, he does depart from Handel's intentions.
By the time Solomon was written, he was using no castratos in his oratorios, and the title-role was deliberately designed for a mezzo-soprano; but here the chance to secure the pre-eminent countertenor Andreas Scholl was irresistible. The colour of Handel's predominantly female vocal casting (only Zadok and the smaller-part Levite being exceptions) is thus slightly modified. This historical infidelity is one of the few possible reservations about the set, which is a notable achievement. McCreesh is fortunate in his cast, too. Predictably, Scholl becomes the central focus by his beauty of voice, calm authority, charm and intelligent musicianship. Inger Dam-Jensen, as Solomon's queen, sounds suitably ecstatic in the florid 'Blessed the day' and amorous in 'With thee th'unsheltered moor', and her duet with Solomon flows with easy grace. To Susan Gritton falls the sublime 'Will the sun forget to streak', with its wonderful unison oboe-and-flute obbligato.
As the high priest Zadok, Paul Agnew shines in the ornate 'See the tall palm'. A more positive and audible keyboard continuo would have been welcome, but this is a minor shortcoming, and the effect of the performance as a whole is deeply impressive, with such things as 'Will the sun', the grave interlude to 'With pious heart' and the elegiac chorus 'Draw the tear from hopeless love' haunting the listener's mind.”
