Melodious Melancholye - Ensemble Belladonna

Melodious Melancholye - Ensemble Belladonna

Type: CD
Kolekce: Vocal Collection

The sweet sounds of Medieval England

Ensemble Belladonna

This collection of songs (performed in part instrumentally) is a tribute to the melodious melancholy of the English.

Ensemble Belladonna consists of three women -- Miriam Andersén, Rebecca Bain, and Susanne Ansorg -- who hail from Sweden, Canada, and Germany, respectively. The group specializes in singing music of the medieval and early Renaissance periods, and if one were to compare it to Anonymous 4, Ensemble Belladonna might well find such suggestion flattering as its members are avid admirers of the "the girls." Nevertheless, Ensemble Belladonna is significantly different from Anonymous 4 in that the group plays its own instruments: Andersén the medieval harp, Bain the fiddle, and Ansorg the vielle and rebec. The members of Ensemble Belladonna met while studying at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis in Basel, Switzerland, and while they have been together since 1997, Raum Klang's Melodious Melancholye appears to be their first release on disc.

"Melodious" is an apt choice of adjective for these musicians, as their voices are very strong, pleasant, and beautiful. Their enunciation of Middle English -- ergo, this collection is subtitled "The Sweet Sounds of Medieval England" -- is pure and convincing in a manner that surpasses many native speakers of modern English. The instrumental performances are likewise cogent and skillful, and Ensemble Belladonna's offhand and casual style of playing seems idiomatic in a way that seems to the manner born, nothing in the performances smack of conspicuous realization. The program consists of a wide variety of English songs dating from the beginning of the thirteenth century to the early decades of the fifteenth; there are many highlights, though "Abide, I hope it be the best" and their rendition of the Christmas carol "Lullay lullow" are standouts. The annotation of Melodious Melancholye is sensible and contains details on sources for each piece within the track listing. Raum Klang's recording is a little quiet, but one only turn it up if need be; in every other way this maiden voyage for Ensemble Belladonna is a superb effort, and should win the group both wide admiration and many fans.

Die Spinne im Netz (The Spider in the Web) - Music from Nuremberg Prints of the 16th Century.

Disk: 1
Type: CD
Kolekce: RenaissancePodkolekce: Voices and Chamber Ensemble

At the beginning of the 16th century Nuremberg (“The spider in the web”) was a northern European centre in which many threads of international music life came together. Early on Nuremberg had established itself as a centre of book printing. The first printing-offices that occupied themselves seriously with the printing of music, however, were those of Hieronymus Formschneider and Johannes Petreius. Most of the pieces on this recording are taken from these collections of three-part music. They contain international repertoire, including old masterworks such as Caecox and Tandernaken by Alexander Agricola, but also arrangements of German folk songs and ballads, as well as French compositions and more recent Italian forms.

Orlando Di Lasso - Psalmi Poenitentialis. Kammerchor Josquin Des Prez
ID: RK9606
Disk: 1
Type: CD
Kolekce: Renaissance

Erst nach dem Tod des prunksüchtigen Herzogs Albert V. von Bayern im Jahre 1584 konnten die bereits 1559 in seinem Auftrag entstandenen Bußpsalmen-Motetten, die er zeitlebens jeder Öffentlichkeit entzog, gedruckt werden. Lasso wählte als übergreifende Idee die Ordnung nach den 8 Kirchentonarten; dafür fügte er den sieben Bußpsalmen einen weiteren Text hinzu, den 148. Psalm. Für diese CD wurden der 1., 3., 6. und 7. Bußpsalm ausgewählt. Die elf Sänger interpretieren diese überaus subtile Musik mit feiner Sensibilität, die melodischen Linien schweben gleichsam im Raum der romanischen Basilika des Klosters Lehnin. Als besonders reizvoll erweist sich die gemischt solistisch-chorische Besetzung des Ensembles. So entsteht ein Gesamtklang, in dem Individualität und Fülle verschmelzen und das Hören dieser CD zu einem meditativen Erlebnis wird.

Unter den Herzögen von Valois wurde Burgund im 15. Jahrhundert zu einer der mächtigsten politischen Kräfte Westeuropas und seine Hauptstadt Dijon ein Zentrum der Musik. Was hier erklang, war so innovativ und eigenständig, dass man heute von einer »Burgundischen Schule« spricht. Gleichwohl kamen die Musiker der Burgundischen Hofkapelle aus allen Himmelsrichtungen - unter ihnen Guillaume Du Fay, einer der größten Meister nicht nur seiner Zeit, sondern der Musik generell. Geehrt für seine Melodien von kunstvoller Anmut, begabt mit einem einzigartigen Instinkt für die harmonische Balance der musikalischen Phrasen, galt er als jemand, der die Sphären der Vollkommenheit der musikalischen Kunst seiner Zeit erreichte.

Die drei "Triste Plaisir"-Musiker haben sich eigens zusammengefunden für dieses Repertoire voll von Raffinesse, großzügiger Gesanglichkeit und jener süßen Melancholie, welche den Meisterwerken der spätmittelalterlichen Liedkunst eigentümlich ist. Entgegen der gängigen Praxis versuchen sie mit minimalster Besetzung - nur Stimme und zwei Streichinstrumente - der Intimität dieser Kleinodien gerecht zu werden.

Das junge Basler Ensemble La Morra präsentiert eine Anthologie dieser höchst verfeinerten Kunst instrumentalen und vokalen Musizierens in der Frische und Unmittelbarkeit eines »Gartens der Freude«.
