Berlioz: Grande Messe des Morts, Op. 5 (Requiem)

Berlioz: Grande Messe des Morts, Op. 5 (Requiem)


“Norrington's approach is pensive, sober and funereal-but it's so well paced that the sense of inevitability underlines man's mortality, and the outbursts when they do come are more effective for their comparative restraint...a reminder that the first performance was in church, not on a concert hall stage.” Andrew McGregor, bbc.co.uk, 8th May 2006

“"Truly it was of frightening greatness," wrote Berlioz after the Requiem 's première. The massed timpani of the "Tuba mirum" produced an "indescribable shock". The chief priest wept uncontrollably, while one of the choral singers suffered a nervous breakdown. Thankfully, there seems to have been no such casualty among the singers in this "live" performance from Stuttgart. The rich, ample acoustics of the Beethovensaal give full value to Berlioz's vast spatial effects, most spectacularly the four brass bands that herald the timpani onslaught in the "Tuba mirum". Yet Norrington's concern for clarity of line and articulation, and the carefully judged balances, mean that we hear far more than usual of Berlioz's brilliant and bizarre orchestral detail. Norrington's dramatic urgency, allied to choral singing of thrilling body and bite, make the apocalyptic movements duly overwhelming. No less moving is the choir's luminous delicacy in the "Quid sum miser" and "Quaerens me" - music of Cistercian purity and austerity - while Toby Spence brings a calm, rapt beauty to the cruelly high solo in the "Sanctus". A magnificent achievement, to be set alongside Colin Davis's recordings of this awesome work.” The Telegraph

Michael Bohnen At The Metropolitan Opera, New York

Michael Bohnen At The Metropolitan Opera, New York


Michael Bohnen

Weighing in at 280 pounds and over 6 feet tall, Michael Bohnen was a true giant on the German operatic stage. Following his training, he made his debut as Kaspar in "Der Freischütz" in Düsseldorf in 1910. This was the prelude to a marvelous career that led him via Wiesbaden to Berlin. There he recorded his first disc in 1912.

He became a leading baritone and bass singer in the following years and shone especially as a singer of Wagner. When he appeared at the Metropolitan in New York in the 20's he was mentioned in one breath with Benjamino Gigli and Feodor Chaliapin.

Never did classical music and jazz come so close as during the 1920s. The first sounds from this period bear witness to the vitality of the partnership: long before the concepts of popular and serious music existed, there had been contacts between the kind of music which demands structured listening, whose laws are those of the ears alone, and the kind which works physically, whose meaning is not exclusively to be found in what can be heard. This polarisation makes itself felt in the twentieth century by virtue of the fact that European composers begin to take an interest in jazz, a variant form which brought powerful consequences.
