W. A. MOZART - CHURCH SONATAS

W. A. MOZART - CHURCH SONATAS
ID: MELCD1002265

Collection: Sacred Music

Vladimir Spivakov, 1st violin
Anatoly Sheinyuk, 2nd violin
Yuli Turovsky, cello
Sergey Dizhur, organ

Firma Melodiya presents an album of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Church Sonatas.
Vladimir Spivakov is known for his Mozart interpretations as a soloist, chamber ensemble member and conductor. In his renditions, Mozart’s concertos, violin sonatas, ensembles, divertimentos, symphonies and masses preserve the combination of lightness and inner depth, youthful naivety and philosophic wisdom which were so characteristic of the great Salzburger.
From the first years of his artistic career, Spivakov showed interest in Mozart’s heritage composed in different genres.
Mozart wrote his Church Sonatas in the period of his service for the Prince-Archbishop of Salzburg in 1767 to 1779. Appointed as organist, he already
was a skillful violinist as well. Although his onemovement “sonatas” (in fact, these are ensembles for three string instruments and organ) were intended for divine services, they sound rather secular and buoyant.
Mozart’s fourteen Church Sonatas were recorded in 1974 by a constellation of brilliant musicians such as Vladimir Spivakov, violinist Anatoly Sheinyuk (now a professor of the Detroit Conservatory), Yuli Turovsky, a cellist and future
founder of the I Musici de Montréal Chamber Orchestra, and Sergei Dizhur, one of the best Soviet organists.

World premiere recording

„INCESSAMENT“ - hinter diesem geheimnisvollen Titel verbirgt sich ein spannendes CD-Programm, in dessen Zentrum die Weltersteinspielung der „Missa Incessament“ von Pierre de la Rue (c. 1452-1518) steht. Ergänzt wird diese Messe durch Gregorianik aus dem Moosburger Graduale.

Den Rahmen des Programms bilden zwei Kompositionen de la Rues, die mit der Messe in engem Zusammenhang stehen: sein französisches Lied „Incessament“, auf dessen Grundlage er seine Missa Incessament komponierte, und dessen Umwandlung in eine lateinische Motette für das protestantische Deutschland: „Sic deus dilexit“. Dieses Programm wurde konzipiert unter Mitarbeit des führenden de la Rue-Forschers J. Evan Kreider und des Gregorianik-Experten Godehard Joppich. Aufgenommen wurde diese CD in der wunderbaren Basilika des Benediktinerklosters Wechselburg/Mitteldeutschland, die der Musik die passende Aura verleiht.

amarcord, 1992 von ehemaligen Mitgliedern des Leipziger Thomanerchores gegründet, zählt inzwischen zu den herausragenden Repräsentanten der Musikstadt Leipzig und weltweit zu den führenden Vokalensembles.

Vokalmusik zu Advent und Weihnacht von Gregorianik bis Gospel, von Mitteldeutschland bis Trindad, von Dufay bis Mauersberger
Das Weihnachtsfest wird seit vielen Jahrhunderten in allen Teilen der Erde begangen und diese Tradition hat die vielleicht schönsten und beständigsten Volkslieder hervorgebracht. So unterschiedlich wie die Kulturen ist auch diese CD. Da geht es vom bekannten "Es ist ein Ros entsprungen" über Sizilien ("O sanctissima" - "O du fröhliche") nach Trinidad und von der Gregorianik über die Renaissance bis zur Weihnachtsmotette vom Thomaskantor Erhard Mauersberger (1903-1982). "In adventu Domini" enthält Advents- und Weihnachtssätze aus über einem halben Jahrtausend, darunter echte Perlen, die es nicht nur allein dadurch sind, dass sie auf keiner anderen Weihnachts-CD zu finden sind. Und natürlich begeistert das Vokalensemble amarcord aus Leipzig wieder mit seinem unvergleichlichen Sound!

Rachmaninov. All Night Vigil

Rachmaninov. All Night Vigil
ID: VVCD-00042
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Sacred Music
Subcollection: Choir

Recorded October 26-27 and November 4, 1997 St. Nikolai Church Choir of the State Tretyakov Gallery, Moscow Conducted by Alexei Pouzakov Archpriest Nikolai Sokolov Cover: Mikhail Vrubel. Angel with a Candle, 1887 All Night Vigil is a public worship in the Orthodox Church and its name reflects the fact that it used to last all through the night. For many decades the worship included some customary chants. It was not until late 19th century that All Night Vigil became a more flexible genre, that attracted some prominent Russian composers, including Tchaikovsky. The premier performance of the Rachmaninov's All Night Vigil took place in 1915 not in a church but in the Great Hall of the Moscow Nobility Assembly. Thus liturgical music became music for the concert halls as well as for temples. Rachmaninov's genius manifested itself in an astonishingly free creative manner of musical composition based however on a deep and awesome study of the Ortodox liturgical singing tradition as well as on a daring and innovatory use of all the advanced methods of the modern classical music of the time. As a result a true masterpiece of polyphonic canticle arose. As Alexei Puzakov put it, you will not find here just the main part of soprano and accompaniment (all other parts).Each voice - and Rachmaninov involves 12 of them - like a human being in real life, performs his or her part which is unique and main for him or her. All these voices merge into a unique and inimitable in its beauty Divine symphony. St. Nikolai Church Choir is well placed to perform the great work by Rachmaninov. It is one of the best church choirs in Moscow, all its members are exceptionally talented professional singers It is a State Choir under the State Tretyakov Gallery. The choir performed All Night Vigil at the Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatoire, at St. Paul's Cathedral in London, but more often the choir sings during the services in the St. Nikolai Church which at one time was Rachmaninov's parish church.

Armenian Sacred Music of the 5th-8th Centuries - Ensemble of Ancient Music of Armenia
Armenian sacred music is one of the most ancient branches of Christian culture. Armenia’s church singing tradition took shape on the basis of its ancient music culture which has been in existence for more than three millenniums. So, the initial branches of the ancient Armenian music - peasant, goosan (music of national singers and poets) and cult (heathen), as well as its monodical (one-voice) rhyme were formed back in the 3rd century BC, during a period when a single-language state was in the making. With adoption of Christianity in the year 301, creation of the Armenian written language, and translation of the bible into the Armenian language (the 5th century), the foundation for development of the Armenian Christian church music became available. The very first sharakans (sacred hymns) were composed by St. Mesrop Mashtots (the creator of the Armenian written language) and St. Sahak Partev (Mashtots’ associate, a supreme patriarch, scholar and translator. The term sharakan originates from an Armenian word shark which stands for a number or succession, and means a sacred song canonized by the church and include in a series of hymns collected in Sharaknotse (Gimnaria) in course of time. These numbers of sacred hymns traditionally included pieces of three genres - ktsurd (troparion), katsurd (kontakion), and canon. Katsurd (kontakion) began to develop in the Armenian sacred arts in late 6th century. The hymn ‘The Souls Who Dedicated Themselves’ by Catholicos Komitas Akhtsetsi is one of the outstanding and highly artistic katsurds of the 7th century. Beingfully based on the national tradition and distinguished with special melodiousness, this piece by Komitas raised the art of Armenian sacred songwriting to a new level and facilitated its further development. Catholicos Nerses Shnorali (12th century) was one of the prominent and most esteemed writers of sacred hymns. His works enriched both the poetic and musical language of the Armenian sacred hymnody. Thanks to him, rhyme became finally firmly established in Armenian poetry. Composer, a laureate of the State Prize of Armenia (2009), Yervand Vaganovich Yerkanian was born on 5 November, 1951, in Leninakan. In 1975, he graduated from the Yerevan Conservatory. Yerkanian is one of the most known and distinctive representatives of contemporary Armenian music. He is an author of numerous works created in various genres - operas, ballets, symphony, chamber and vocal compositions. Historical themes have always been the basis of the composer’s work. In 1987, Yerkanian became an artistic director and conductor of the instrumental ensemble Tagaran. Since then, the ensemble’s repertoire was promptly filled with wonderful renditions of sacred hymns, and very soon after that the ensemble’s name got a world-wide recognition. All renditions and arrangements of the compositions on this album have been done by Yervand Yerkanian. Armenian Sacred Music of the V-XIII Centuries.
