On this new CD the Chor des Bayerischen Rundfunks under the direction of Peter Dijkstra presents itself a cappella in works by Richard Strauss, Gustav Mahler and Richard Wagner.

Magnificent tone paintings like “Isoldes Liebestod” (“Isolde’s Love-Death”) and the “Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen” (“Songs of a Wayfarer”) radiate a new unprecedented glory in transcriptions for 16-part chorus by Clytus Gottwald. Thanks to its special tonal homogeneity and stylistic versatility, this ensemble enjoys the highest regard throughout the world. Dutch conductor Peter Dijkstra – the artistic director of the ensemble since 2005 – is the shooting star on the choral scene and has presented the ensemble together with both BR orchestras in a number of versatile programs.

- Purely Chorus! The BR-Chor presents itself a cappella

- Warm, crystal-clear choral sound

- “Classics” from the late romantic era in unusual transcriptions
