Sacred Music


Bach, J S:

St John Passion, BWV245

The Bach Collegium Japan has been regarded for some years now as a real discovery among baroque ensembles specialising in the performance of sacred music from the Baroque and Masaaki Suzuki, who conducts and plays the harpsichord, is a complete and thorough musician.

Bach Collegium Japan, Masaaki Suzuki

Mass in B minor, BWV232

The artistry of the performers under the assured baton of conductor George Christoph Biller is exemplary and the state-of-the-art filming shows the serene gothic church in full splendour - a fitting backdrop for the work that is generally regarded as the crowning glory of Bach's sacred choral music; a majestic work that showcases Bach's supreme craftsmanship and skill as a choral composer.

Thomanerchor Leipzig & Gewandhausorchester Leipzig, Georg Christoph Biller

Beethoven:

Missa Solemnis in D major, Op. 123

On this DVD state-of-the-art recording Beethoven's overwhelming music blends wonderfully with the camera shots of the impressive space.The cast of soloists is excellent. It includes Camilla Nylund and René Pape, among the most outstanding singers of the younger generation.A bonus film features the reconstruction of the Frauenkirche.

Camilla Nylund & René Pape

Sächsische Staatskapelle Dresden Orchestra, Fabio Luisi

Verdi:

Requiem

Lorin Maazel's tour with the Symphonica Toscanini, called "In the Footsteps of Toscanini", culminated in two concerts in Venice of Verdi's Requiem, a showpiece of Toscanini's, and St Mark's proved to be an ideal venue for this eloquent and musically impressive confessional work.

Norma Fantini & Anna Smirnova
