Handel: Messiah

Handel: Messiah


Hanna Herfurtner (soprano), Gaia Petrone (alto), Michael Schade (tenor) & Christian Immler (bass)

Salzburger Bachchor & Bach Consort Wien, Rubén Dubrovsky

Described by librettist Charles Jennens with typical English understatement as “a fine entertainment”, Handelʼs Messiah was initially controversial as a biblical oratorio written for secular theatres. Within years it was however being “received with universal applause” and its composerʼs purpose in delighting and charming his listeners has made this masterpiece an international favourite ever since. This eye-catching, audiovisual recording of Handelʼs masterpiece with its cast of renowned soloists captures the 2016 Easter concert in the impressive baroque Basilica of Klosterneuburg, Austria.

Beethoven: Symphonies Nos. 6 & 7


Beethoven:

Symphony No. 6 in F major, Op. 68 'Pastoral'

Symphony No. 7 in A major, Op. 92


Gewandhausorchester, Herbert Blomstedt

In his Sixth Symphony, the “Pastoral”, Ludwig van Beethoven conveys his musical message in such a way that lets the listener literally “see” images of beautiful nature, tempestuous storms, and shepherds singing in the fields, whereas in his Seventh Symphony, Beethoven lets the music speak for itself. The performances of these works by the Gewandhausorchester under its conductor laureate Herbert Blomstedt give the uplifting feeling that the intentions of both composer and performers are united in serving the musical message.

In the lively, subtly differentiated interpretation of the works, sincere happiness, deep respect, piety, joyful serenity and an affinity to nature as well as passion, vitality and spirit can all be felt. This is what the "authenticity" of making music is all about. The humanist and musician Herbert Blomstedt embodies this truth in a unique way, creating an atmosphere where the wonders of music all become true.

Giorgio Netti: Ciclo Del Ritorno For Viola Solo

Giorgio Netti: Ciclo Del Ritorno For Viola Solo


Netti:

Lassù For Prepared And Amplified Viola Solo

Un Nastro For Distorted And Spread-out Applause

E Poi For Viola


Anna Spina (viola)

Benoît Piccand (sound director)

World Premiere Recordings with a bonus interview between Marcus Weiss and Giorgio Netti.

One could designate this cycle as a small odyssey of breathing, becoming acoustically transformed from the body / space into the body / material and body / instrument of tradition. It narrates a journey and return; the piece carries on the tradition of the νόστοι (the poems of the Iliad, describing the return of the Greeks to their homeland after the conquest of Troy), whereby the viola assumes the role of the narrator, simultaneously serving as a narrating voice and the location of the journey: of the expanded acoustical space as a slow return to the instrument, as separation and rebirth.

Bach, J S: St John Passion, BWV245

Bach, J S: St John Passion, BWV245

Live recording, Nuremberg, St. Lorenz Church, “ION – Nuremberg International Organ Week” in March 2015


Maximilian Schmitt (Evangelist), Tareq Nazmi (Christ), Christina Landshamer (soprano), Anke Vondung (mezzo-soprano), Tilman Lichdi (tenor), Krešimir Stražanac (bass-baritone / Pilate), Simona Brüninghaus (Maid), Andreas Burkhart (Petrus) & Moon Yung Oh / Andreas Hirtreiter (Servant)

Chor des Bayerischen Rundfunks & Concerto Köln, Peter Dijkstra

The music of Bach's 'St. John Passion', which the composer wrote for Holy Week in 1724 immediately after his appointment as cantor of St Thomas's Church in Leipzig, still retains all its freshness and vitality nearly 300 years later, and is a true Baroque delight. The two main choruses Herr, unser Herrscher and Ruht wohl, ihr heiligen Gebeine form the beginning and culmination of a large-scale orchestral and vocal structure in which Bach reveals his absolute mastery of polyphony. Inwardly reflective chorales are as much interwoven into the events of the Passion as the haunting arias which comment on the biblical texts of the Gospel of St John. Throughout this solemn Passion oratorio, there is a constant emphasis on Baroque musical magnificence.

What makes this live recording of the concert version of March 2015 so special? The fresh voices of the young and excellent vocal soloists, the regularly praised "astonishing three-dimensionality" and "crystalline clarity" of the Chor des Bayerischen Rundfunks under the direction of Peter Dijkstra and, of course, the renowned period instrument ensemble Concerto Köln.

This recording of Bach's 'St John Passion' has now been released on DVD, at a concert during the “ION – Nuremberg International Organ Week” in Nuremberg’s St. Lorenz Church, and enhanced by the film “Stories of Hope – Music that Touches the Soul” by Melitta Müller-Hansen.

Braunfels: Ulenspiegel

Braunfels: Ulenspiegel


Marc Horus (Till Ulenspiegel), Christa Ratzenböck (Nele), Joachim Goltz (Profoss), Hans Peter Scheidegger (Klas), Andreas Jankowitsch (Jost/Schuster), Tomas Kovacic (Bürgermeister/Ablasspriester) & Martin Summer (Schreiner/Arkebusier)

EntArteOpera Chorus & Israel Chamber Orchestra, Martin Sieghart (conductor) & Roland Schwab (stage director)

Stage and costume design: Susanne Thomasberger

Lighting: Roman Hauser, Jan Derschmidt

Charles de Coster's novel Thyl Ulenspiegel provided the source for Braunfels’ opera of the same name. It narrates one of the darkest chapters in human history – the Spanish Inquisition in 16th-century Flanders – through the improbable voice of a world-famous buffoon. He depicts an apocalyptic panorama, in which the Seven Deadly Sins of the Bible, like the Riders of the Apocalypse, come to haunt the last remnants of mankind. Amid this doom and gloom, the composer Walter Braunfels sets his focus on the origins and general development of resistance. Ulenspiegel becomes an incisive case study of an apolitical daredevil who undergoes a radical personal transformation as a consequence of the terror which befalls his family. Promoted to become the political leader of the resistance, his mind knows only one thing: all-encompassing revenge.

Bach, J S: Mass in B minor, BWV232

Bach, J S: Mass in B minor, BWV232

Live recording, Munich, Herkulessaal, 22.04.2016


Christina Landshamer (soprano), Anke Vondung (mezzo-soprano), Maximilian Schmitt (tenor) & Andreas Wolf (bass-baritone)

Chor des Bayerischen Rundfunks & Concerto Köln, Peter Dijkstra

For Bach, the Mass in B minor marked the culmination and also the end point of his life’s work as a composer. This "great Catholic Mass," the only mass he composed, and in which he set to music the complete Ordinary of the Latin Mass, was his last great vocal work. The Mass, completed in 1748/49, is a musical masterpiece in which the Baroque musical splendour is always to the fore, though reflective moments and intense, heartfelt chorales are also very important elements. The Latin Ordinarium constitutes the silk thread along which all these musical pearls are strung.

Even after almost three hundred years, the music of Bach's Mass in B minor is still animated, fresh, and a true Baroque delight – whether heard live in concert or recorded. What makes this concert version of June 2016 at the "ION - Nuremberg International Organ Week" in Nuremberg’s St. Lorenz Church so special that it should definitely be added to any DVD collection? The fresh voices of the young but excellent vocal soloists: the regularly praised "astonishing three-dimensionality" and "crystalline clarity" of the Chor des Bayerischen Rundfunks under the direction of Peter Dijkstra and of course of the renowned period instrument ensemble Concerto Köln; and last but not least, the exciting live atmosphere of a concert event that delighted the audiences, and even managed to coax the word “magical” from music critics – rare praise, but in this case, richly deserved! The DVD recording of Bach's Mass in B Minor has now been reissued by BR-KLASSIK.

La Chambre Philharmonique, Emmanuel Krivine

Created on the initiative of Emmanuel Krivine, La Chambre Philharmonique likes to see itself as the achievement of a utopia. An orchestra of a new kind, comprising members of the finest European ensembles motivated by the same musical urgency, La Chambre Philharmonique places pleasure at the heart of a new adventure in music.

It is also a space for research and exchange, identifying the instruments and period techniques appropriate to each repertory.

In May 2014, La Chambre Philharmonique performed the Symphonie Fantastique of Berlioz in a memorable concert at the Cité de la Musique in Paris. It is this occasion that is now presented on DVD. The symphony is complemented by four fascinating bonus features: Emmanuel Krivine discusses with some of the musicians their work in common and the practice of period-instrument performance, three of the orchestra’s principals (violinist, bassoonist and timpanist) demonstrate the specific characteristics of their instruments, and the DVD offers the option of watching the entire symphony with commentary by Krivine.

At the moment when he is about to become Music Director of the Orchestre National de France, here is the rewarding testimony of an illustrious musician, highly respected by all those who work with him, who talks about music with simplicity, humour and sincerity.

Brahms’ German Requiem is a work of great intensity that speaks to people of all faiths and to believers and non-believers alike. In this concert recorded at the magnificent Baroque basilica of Saint Florian in Austria, The Cleveland Orchestra and its Music Director Franz Welser-Möst pare down all traces of bombast and, together with the Wiener Singverein, soloists Hanna-Elisabeth Müller and Simon Keenlyside, they create a meditation on life and death, hailed by the press as "an event of the first order".
