Music from The Dresden Castle Chapel

Music from The Dresden Castle Chapel
ID: RK2702
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Organ

Sebastian Knebel plays on the seventeenth-century Coswig organ of the beautiful Alte Kirche. Since this is the only surviving organ of its type Knebel has chosen a programme of music written in the period the organ was built. This is a well thought out programme which explores the tonal nuances of the restored Coswig organ and rounds off with selected pieces for harpsichord.

Warum es gut ist, alte Weihnachtslieder neu zu hören

Wenn sich Schneeflöckchen leise rieselnd ans Fenster setzt, die Glocken süß erklingen und am Baum die Lichter brennen, dann ist - so verheißen es die Lieder - Weihnachten. Üblicherweise hören wir Weihnachtslieder als Klangkulisse auf dem Weihnachtsmarkt oder in der Schnäppchen-Ecke im Kaufhaus. Verkaufsstrategie ist hier: weichgespülte Melodie. Doch spätestens am Nikolaustag haben wir diese Hintergrundsmusik satt.
Auf der Raumklang-CD „Engelslicht und Dornenschatten“ mit neunzehn ausgewählten Weihnachtsliedern kann und muss man hinhören. Die zum Teil altbekannten Lieder kommen uns dabei merkwürdig neu zu Ohren. Indem Christine Maria Rembeck ihnen nachlauscht, die Melodie nur in kleinen Nuancen verändert, einzelne Textpassagen herausgreift und sie durch ihre eigene Klavierbegleitung neu interpretiert. Engelsgleich berührt uns der Gesang Christine Maria Rembecks, eingebettet in das breite Klangsprektrum des Klaviers und ergänzt durch die warmen Celloklänge Emilia Gliozzis.

J.S.Bach - Motets - Trinity Baroque

J.S.Bach - Motets - Trinity Baroque
ID: RK2601
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection:
Baroque
Subcollection: Choir

Die Motetten gehören zu den raffiniertesten Werken Johann Sebastian Bachs. Um dem anspruchsvollen, virtuosen Stil der Motetten Rechnung zu tragen, besetzte Trinity Baroque unter der Leitung von Julian Podger jede Stimme solistisch. Dadurch erscheint die polyphone Kompositionsweise der Motetten in dieser Aufnahme filigran, durchsichtig und klanggewaltig zugleich.
Das Ensemble Trinity Baroque begab sich nach Sachsen-Anhalt, um die Bach'schen Motetten aufzunehmen - in die Kirche St. Wenzel zu Naumburg. Dort weihte Johann Sebastian Bach 1746 die Hildebrandt-Orgel und überwachte später auch die Instandhaltung des Instrumentes. Der historische Ort inspirierte Trinity Baroque zu einer weiteren Idee. Neben der solistischen Interpretation der Stimmen wird die Basslinie durch eben diese Bachorgel (und eine Violone) klanglich herausgehoben - der deutlich wahrnehmbare Ton der Orgel fügt sich in das Klanggeflecht der Vokalstimmen harmonisch ein und verleiht dieser Aufnahme einen einzigartigen Charakter.

The Marian Consort:
Gwendolen Martin & Emma Walshe - Sopranos
Rory McCleery Countertenor / Director
Nicholas Scott - Tenor
Steffan Jones, Baritone / Christopher Borrett -Bass

For their debut recording, the six-strong Marian Consort explores music from late sixteenth and early seventeenth-century Spain. This fascinating programme celebrates the rich compositional fruits of the Siglo de Oro’s intensely competitive musical culture. These luminary works - all dedicated to the Virgin Mary - demand performances of great intelligence and vocal commitment. The youthful Marians respond absolutely, bringing hushed intimacy and bristling excitement to some of the most gorgeously searing lines in the history of European polyphony.

A new CD with frottole and villotte about folk themes and figures, later destined to become stock characters of the Commedia dell’Arte, of late 15th - Century: Scaramella/Scaramouche (a lampoon soldier), the lanzo or captain, the vecchia maladetta e rincagnata (a “wretched, pug-nosed old hag” who acts either as procuress or as an obstacle to love), Giannolo/Zano and Rosina (the lovers), La Ramacina (the unhappy wife), Il vecchio maladeto (the villainous old man: an unnamed forerunner of Pantalone) and Feragu (an unregenerate Don Giovanni). These figures, who appear in the interludes of the comedies and tragedies performed during festive gatherings at the great courts, first tell their stories and then perform dances such as the ballo del mattarel (“rolling pin dance”) or the mazacrocha (“breadstick dance”) and, above all, moresche (mauresques), performed at all Renaissance banquets and in the interludes of comedies as a pretext for travesty and transformation, giving rise to the symbolic portrayal of an exotic world revolving around play, love, war and the derision of power. A new recording full of colours, rhythm and……lies!

Schnitger - Giusti - Johan Brouwer

Schnitger - Giusti - Johan Brouwer
ID: ACDBO063-2
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection:
Baroque

There are a number of recordings of the choral partita ‘Ach wie nichtig, ach wie flüchtig’ by Georg Böhm (1666-1733), including one on the great Arp Schnitger city organ in Hamburg (1693), 57 voices, beautifully played by Stef Tuinstra. The version heard here is played on Arp Schnitger’s smallest organ positiv, 8 voices, but it offers enough variation to register the 8 variations in a diverse manner. The suite in A Minor ‘Melpomene’ by Johann Kaspar Ferdinand Fischer (1665-1746) is taken from his Musikalischer Parnassus (1738). Melpomene was the muse of song and tragedy. The stylised dances are a slow Allemande, the fast Passepied, a Rondeau, alternately a refrain and a verse, a Chaconne, variations based on a descending series of 4 tones and finally a fast Gigue. The Fantasia on the hexachord Vt Re Mi Fa Sol La by Johann Jakob Froberger (1616-1667) was already a famous work during his lifetime., Athenasius Kirchner mentions the work in his Masurgia (1646) and it was published in an autograph in 1649. The seven parts of the work bring the hexachord in various rhythms and with various second voices. In the sixth and seventh parts he adds chromatic tones, thus deftly exploiting the meantone temperament in the strong effect of dissonants and consonants. A true masterpiece. Johann Jakob Froberger (1616-1667) wrote the Tombeau on the death of the lute player Blancheroche in Paris and added the following remark: ‘fait à Paris sur la mort de Monsieur Blancheroche: lequel se joue fort lentement à la discretion sans observer aucune mesure.’ The improvisational character of the piece strongly resembles the Preludes non mésuree by Louis Couperin, whom Froberger met in Paris in 1652. A striking feature of this work is its exploitation of the meantone temperament, e.g. Froberger twice prescribes a D flat for where a C sharp is tuned, using the dissonant here as an expressive device. The Preludium is one of the great free forms in keyboard music. Of Hans Kotter (1485-1541) we hear an early example, here called Proömium in re. Kotter was a pupil of Paulus Hofhaymer, the most important ‘Organistenmacher’ of the 16th century, just as Sweelinck was in the 17th century. The original of the Giusti instrument is now in the Tagliavini collection in Bologna/Italy.

Bartolotti - Di Chitarra Spagnola - G. Ferries (baroque guitar, french theorbo)

ID: DCD34066

Type: CD
Collection:
Baroque
Subcollection: Guitar

Italian by birth, Bartolotti [1615 - c. 1682] was employed as a musician at the enlightened court of Sweden’s Queen Christina and in the opulent splendour of the Sun King’s Versailles. His elegant suites for guitar and theorbo fuse contemplation and virtuosity, distilling the melancholic beauty of the French Baroque. Largely neglected in modern times, Bartolotti’s music occupies a seminal place in the early guitar repertory. Lauded in this field, Gordon Ferries is a choice exponent of this cosmopolitan composer’s music.

Bartolotti:
Suite in G major
Sarabande in C major
Suite in E minor (from Secondo libro di chitarra)
Allemande in C minor
Sarabande in C minor
Suite in G minor (from Secondo libro di chitarra)
