Oregon Bach Festival Chamber Orchestra, Helmuth Rilling

“In general Rilling steers a secure middle course between Scylla and Charybdis, between the leaden interpretations that were all too common at one time and the whizz-kid treatment. There are, however, some performances here which don’t quite come off - parts of No.3 are a bit lumpen, for example” MusicWeb International, January 2013

Bach, J S: Christmas Oratorio, BWV248

Bach, J S: Christmas Oratorio, BWV248


Hanno Müller-Brachmann (Bass), Ingeborg Danz (Contralto (Female alto), James Taylor (Tenor), Marcus Ullmann (Tenor), Sibylla Rubens (Soprano)

Gächinger Kantorei, Stuttgart Choir; Stuttgart Bach Collegium Orchestra, Helmuth Rilling

“Energetic director Helmut Rilling is more fired up than ever here. The choruses crackle with thrilling fervour and a blistering attack and shine to notes which, alongside a forthright Gächinger Kantorei, carry the day persuasively on modern instruments. There will always be those for whom Rilling represents an inflexibility of phrasing and unyielding articulation in Bach, paradoxically more reminiscent of the least alluring elements of period performance than the 'ebb and flow' of mainstream consciousness.
This recording doubtless reinforces the odd prejudice, though the habitually hardedged orchestral textures of the Bach Collegium Stuttgart seem more mollifying and warm hearted in movements such as the pastoral Sinfonia at the beginning of Part 2 and the divinely inspired 'Schlafe, mein Liebster' later in the same cantata (it must be said now, flawed by a tiresomely repeated pull-up before the second phrase).
James Taylor is a natural Evangelist: articulate, discriminating, exacting if not emotionally candid. He also retains focus throughout the events of each tableau and gives clearly etched readings. Yet much of the credit must also go to the outstanding solo singing. Sibylla Rubens and Hanno Müller-Brachmann are stunning in the pivotal duet of Part 3, 'Herr, dein Mitleid', and Ingeborg Danz sings with exquisite and gentle poise in the scene-setting 'Bereite dich, Zion'. If her 'Schlafe' is a touch disappointing, then that reflects the weight of expectation which surrounds this central aria. If you prefer a mezzo to a countertenor, then only Anne Sofie von Otter for Gardiner or Christa Ludwig for Richter can better her largely satisfying contribution. Müller-Brachmann is a fine bass soloist in 'Grosser Herr' and as movingly inti- mate as Michael George for Philip Pickett in the recitative with chorale, 'Immanuel, O süsses Wort'. Rubens is on really terrific form throughout, and her 'Nur in Wink' in Part 6 is a model of outstanding Bach singing.
There's a spiritual containment which serves its purpose here – there's absolutely no sentimental guff – and yet it perhaps trespasses into the clinical too readily. Rilling, as ever, raises hopes and only intermittently fulfils them, but this is still a distinguished reading.”

The choir’s repertoire comprises masterpieces of sacred church music and it has enjoyed great success during the last few years, touring in Switzerland, Poland, Israel, France and many other countries. This must surely be one of the great Christmas choral masterpieces.
