Gounod: St Cecilia Mass

Gounod: St Cecilia Mass


“Drilled and stately it may be, but Gounod would have been surprised by such a poker-faced rendition. Gerhard Stolze, despite success in Wagnerian roles, makes possibly the most ill-suited Sanctus soloist ever heard.” BBC Music Magazine, December 2007 ***

“Markevitch's vintage version, recorded in the mid-1960s, still sounds remarkably well. In his straight-faced way Markevitch makes the incongruity of Gounod's jolly and vulgar tunes all the more delectable, and soloists, chorus and orchestra are all first rate” Penguin Guide ***

Mariss Jansons conducts Schubert and Gounod

Mariss Jansons conducts Schubert and Gounod

Live-Recording, Munich, Herkulessaal, 27.-29.03.2007


Gounod:

St Cecilia Mass

Schubert:

Mass No. 2 in G major, D167


These two popular 19th century orchestral masses could hardly be more different: even though there are only 40 years between Franz Schubert’s Mass No. 2 in G major D. 167 and Charles Gounod’s St. Cecilia Mass. While Schubert at the tender age of 18 wrote his mass - in a single week! - in the customary style at the time of the Missa brevis, Charles Gounod’s St. Cecilia Mass stands out by virtue of lustrous tone colors with harp and winds - reminiscent in many places of grand opéra.

The recording of the present CD took place in March of 2007 in Munich’s Herkulessaal in the Residence and reveal Mariss Jansons, the Chief Conductor of the Chor and Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks in an especially deeply felt program.

Schubert and Gounod: two popular 19th century orchestral masses united on one CD.

After Haydn’s Harmony Mass the second BR-KLASSIK CD with masses under the direction of Chief Conductor Mariss Jansons.

“splendidly controlled by Mariss Jansons. There is also a fine tenor solo from Christian Elsner in the 'Sanctus', and both performance and recording do well with the three soloists in 'et incarnatus', which Gounod wanted sung as quietly as possible” International Record Review, February 2012
