Juliane Banse (soprano)

Deutsche Radio Philharmonie, Christoph Poppen

In her debut for Haenssler, the talented young soprano Juliane Banse is joined by Christoph Poppen. She has selected a highly intelligent recital including arias by Weber, Tchaikovsky, Massenet, Mozart and Puccini. She has distinguished herself not only for the beauty of her singing, but for the depth of her characterisations and deep empathy with the emotional world of the women she is portraying.

“The voice is a full lyric and quite beautiful, with plenty of warmth, security at all dynamic levels and a clear, even line from top to bottom...Her Mimì is sung directly and sweetly...Her Tatyana is breathless and girlish, and she sounds utterly sincere in every mood change and moment of self-doubt. Micaëla's aria is simply gorgeous, the tone solid, the legato ideal.” International Record Review, March 2011

“this latest recital from Hänssler is a classic in every way...Banse consistently uses her exceptionally sweet and pure voice with extraordinary precision, hitting exposed top notes effortlessly and shading her tone most subtly...When it comes to Tatyana's Letter Scene, [she] is masterly in drawing the contrasted sections together, helped by Christoph Poppen and his Saarbrucken orchestra, with its glorious horn section.” Gramophone Magazine, April 2011

“Banse sings with silvery clean, gently warmed beauty. However, her character analyses are occasionally rather odd. Take Lauretta, the love-struck innocent of Puccini's Gianni Schicchi. Banse has branded her a duplicitous fibber, and transformed her tender 'O mio babbino caro' into a hammed-up parody. However, there's still much to be savoured, including a particularly profound reading of Weber's 'Leise, leise, fromme Weise'.” Gramophone Magazine, May 2011 ***

Mozart: Mass in C minor, K427 'Great'

Mozart: Mass in C minor, K427 'Great'


Diana Damrau, Juliane Banse (sopranos), Lothar Odinius (tenor), Markus Marquardt (bass)

Gächinger Kantorei Stuttgart, Helmuth Rilling

Zachary Lewis in Time Out Chicago: "Thanks to Amadeus, everyone knows Mozart died with pen in hand. But the Requiem isn´t the only thing Mozart left unfinished. He also wrote little more than sketches for much of this great C minor Mass of 1783. In this 250th-birthday year comes this new recording of the Mass completed by scholar and pianist Robert Levin, who´s also finishes the Requiem.

Besides the Mass most listeners know and love, the recording includes nearly 25 minutes of music absent from the version traditionally performed today. Much of the new material fills out the Credo for which Mozart only drafted suggestions. Featured here are a dark, formally developed fugue on Crucifixus, with vocal soloists; a jubilant Et Resurrexit with brass; a strangely perky tenor aria for Et in Spiritum Sanctum; Et Unam Sanctam, a short declamation for chorus; and Et Vitam Venturi, a chorus developing a boldly profiled theme toward a rousing Amen. Levin´s version ends with an exquisite Agnus Dei aria for soprano soloist, tenderly performed by Juliane Banse, culminating in an energetic Dona Nobis Pacem. Mozart fans long accustomed to the regular version are likely to find the additions jarring and possibly not cohesive. Still, it´s hard to fault Levin´s research (explained at welcome length in the ample program notes), and the projects implications are fascinating to consider."
