Jauchzet Gott In Allen Landen
Cantatas for Soprano & Trumpet
Ruth Ziesak (soprano) & Reinhold Friedrich (trumpet)
Berliner Barock Compagney
Jauchzet Gott in allen Landen! Or Celebrate God in all countries, is the leading work on this dazzling new disc from Phoenix Edition. The way the soprano and trumpeter duel with each other is captivating and the driving motifs and high coloratura in the music most definitely depicts a celebration. This virtuosic piece is complemented with other gems from the baroque era from the likes of Krieger, Rosenmüller and Zelenka. There are certainly no better suited performers for this cantata than Ruth Ziesak and Reinhold Friedrich. Ziesak is equally at home in a concert hall as well as on an opera stage, overwhelming the public worldwide with her singing, which with all of its charisma and virtuosity never oversteps the boundaries of musical limits. Rheinhold Friedrich is a modern thinking virtuoso, eliciting all conceivable shadings from his instrument, and is at home with both historical performance practice and the avant garde. Both artists are regular guest performers with the Berliner Barock-Compagney, which regularly receive prizes for their recordings.
“…not only is Ziesak on cracking form but also she is supported by Reinhold Friedrich's sensitively complementary trumpet partnership and the constantly alert string playing of the Berline Barock Compagney.” BBC Music Magazine, September 2008 *****
“Fleet, flexible, clarion singing? That’s Ziesak’s forte. Golden trumpeting? Step forward, Reinhold Friedrich. Pitch both into German Baroque church pieces, from the familiar Bach cantata Jauchzet Gott to Rosenmüller’s sacred concertos and you’re guaranteed a bright, interesting display. The drawbacks? Soloists and the Berliner Barock-Compagney never give us the thrill of audacity, which these showpieces demand: this is safety-first music-making.” The Times, 15th August 2008 ***
