Bartók’s choral works almost certainly comprise the least known niche of his oeuvre. The primary reason for this may be that these pieces are strongly linked to language (Hungarian, Romanian and Slovak folk texts), are for the most part untranslatable, and in translation are un-sing able, thus even the children’s and women’s choruses often sung in Hungary (mainly for pedagogical purposes) are not popular outside Hungarian speaking territories. Yet these compositions, even purely in terms of number, represent an important thread in the composer’s work, and in terms of artistic value are worth no less than the more imposing pieces.

St. John Passion - Passio Secundum - Johannem, BWV 245 - J.S. Bach

Collection: Choral Collection

Charles Daniels, Evangelist Stephen Varcoe, Jesus Stephan Logue, Pilate

J.S. Bach’s ‘Passions’ have been said to employ the word with more than one meaning - as well as telling the story of Christ’s sacrifice, they are simultaneously a celebration of human feeling in the joy and suffering of man’s pilgrimage on earth. The expert early music chamber orchestra Yorkshire Baroque Soloists bring all of these feelings to life in a dramatic and resonant performance of Bach’s Passio Secundum Johannem (St John Passion).

Joined for this recording by the excellent Charles Daniels, Stephen Varcoe and Stephan Loges, the Yorkshire Baroque Soloists have been a leading light in the world of Early Music performance since their formation in 1973.

Jean-Luc Darbellay - A Portrait

Jean-Luc Darbellay - A Portrait
ID: CLAVES502702-3
CDs: 2
Type: CD
Subcollection: Choir

This release is due to a collaboration between the composer and Italian conductor Fabio Luisi, who first became acquainted with Darbellay’s music when he conducted the world premiere of “Oyama” in Geneva in 2000 and five years later the world premiere of his Requiem. Five other pieces for different instrumental ensembles round off this ‘Portrait’ collection, making this the perfect introduction to this fascinating composer.

He is one of the most active Swiss composers at home and abroad. His name regularly appears in the programmes of the most prestigious European concert halls (Maison de Radio France, Geneva’s Victoria Hall, the Gewandhaus in Leipzig…) and contemporary music festivals (Festival Présences, Vienna Modern, World New Music Days…). Born in 1946, Jean-Luc Darbellay studied clarinet, orchestral conducting and composition with Cristóbal Halffter, Dimitri Terzakis and (above all) with Edison Denisov at the Conservatory in Berne. He participated in seminars with Pierre Boulez at the College of France and at IRCAM. He completed his studies with Klaus Huber and Heinz Holliger within the framework of the Lucerne Festival. His interests touch upon all forms and genres of music, which is reflected in his very eclectic catalogue of compositions. Claves is pleased to present a number of his masterpieces in co-production with Mitteldeutsche Rundfunk (MDR) in Leipzig. The 2-CD production is the fruit of the intimate collaboration between the composer and Italian conductor Fabio Luisi, who first became acquainted with Darbellay’s music when he conducted the world premiere of “Oyama” in Geneva in 2000, and five years later the world premiere of his Requiem, a commission from MDR. Five other pieces for different instrumental ensembles round off this “portrait” collection, the perfect introduction to this fascinating composer’s universe.
