J. S. Bach - JOHANNES-PASSION - München 1960 - Eugen Jochum

From All Music Guide: Recording place:München
Golden Melodram is an opera collectors' label, presumably it ventured into Baroque choral music here because of the presence of several well-known operatic vocalists, notably bass Hans Hotter and tenor Peter Pears, in this performance. There are no texts. There are no liner notes -- just a track list. We learn that the recording was made live at a performance in Munich in 1960, but we don't know how or by whom. There are mistakes in the strings; there are a lot of coughing Bavarians in the auditorium. The recording does not just have bad sound, it has rock-fan-with-a-microphone-in-the-jeans sound. Perhaps the rock fans will be impressed to know that those of us on the classical side care enough about what we hear to sneak a recording device into the hall on occasion, too. The sound seems as if it's coming through earmuffs, and from time to time (the contralto aria "Von den Stricken meiner Sünden mich zu entbinden," CD 1, track 7, fares poorly) it drops out altogether. The problem is not in your audio equipment.
Thus forewarned, however, you can expect a very fine St. John Passion of the old-fashioned German kind. The focus for Golden Melodram may have been on the singers, and Hotter, who sings the role of Jesus, has a thick, enveloping bass voice that, despite its built-for-Valhalla quality, has a lyrical expressiveness that works well in Baroque melody. Equally beautiful, however, is conductor Eugen Jochum's shaping of the choruses; mounting in power, they may inspire the listener to wonder why nobody does it this way anymore. The Chorus of the Bavarian Radio was one of West Germany's best-trained at this point, and its mighty alto section is a joy to listen to. The Passion settings were as close as Bach came to opera, and the contrast between his polyphonic sacred choruses in the Lutheran church tradition and his Italianate dramatic sense is memorably brought out by this performance. Despite the grade Z sound, it's worth checking out for those who love Bach's passions and miss the good old days when no one would think of performing Bach's choral music with one voice to a part.

O Muse, comt nv voort -Dutch Songs of Love and Freedom (1550-1750): Duo Seraphim

O Muse, comt nv voort -Dutch Songs of Love and Freedom (1550-1750): Duo Seraphim
ID: ACDHJ040-2
CDs: 1
Type: SACD
Kolektion: BaroqueSubkolektion: Voices

This CD is an anthology of the Dutch contrafact and contains poetry set to music.
These are not original songs but texts written on already existing and well-known melodies. These songs are sometimes called contrafacts: contra: against or at, factum: written on an already existing melody. Between 1550 and 1750 this was a much loved and much practised genre in the Netherlands. Numerous songbooks appeared, booklets in pocket format which could be easily produced from your pocket when you wanted to sing. They contained the texts and the melodies to which they should be sung, with a tune reference: wyse, voys, stemme, vpden voix, op de wyse van etc. We have to retrace these melodies to be able to sing the songs. Fortunately some songbooks have survived with the tunes added in musical notation. A great many other melodies can be traced back to the international song repertoire of the period. Other sources are for instance lute tablatures, dance books, etc.

It is remarkable how many tunes originate from outside the Netherlands. Many are French, English or Italian; fewer are German and Spanish. These must have been popular - or at least known - in the Netherlands, beside the familiar Dutch tunes.

Including works by Jan vander Noot, Coornhert, Vallet, Jan van Hoot, Bredero, Camphuysen, Hooft & Weyerman

Music from the Court of Johann Wilhelm van der Pfalz, duke of Jülich-Berg

Johann Wilhelm of Pfalz-Neuburg was born April 19, 1658 in Düsseldorf. His grandfather, Wolfgang Wilhelm of Pfalz-Neuburg, was given the important dukedom of Jülich-Berg at the beginning of the 17th Century. His father, Philipp Wilhelm of Pfalz-Neuburg, ensured a complete education for his son, who, even at an early age, showed a significant interest in the arts. Music and the Fine Arts became Johann Wilhelm’s dominant passions.
He married archduchess Maria Anna Josepha of Austria in 1678, which gained him access to the rich musical culture of the Emperor’s court. On August 1, 1679, he became the regent of the dukedom of Jülich-Berg with capitals in both Jülich and Düsseldorf. Düsseldorf was the focal point of his reign; he helped develop it to become a center of art and culture. After the death of his first wife in 1689, Johann Wilhelm married Anna Maria Luisa de Medici in 1691. After the death of his father in 1690 he became the Elector of Pfalz and one of the distinguished leaders of his era. Johann Wilhelm shared his passion for art and music with his new wife. The opera performances during Carnival in Düsseldorf in the years following 1690 became legendary. The court orchestra, which Johann Wilhelm formed, could compete with Imperial standards, and was admired by contemporaries in 1711 at the Imperial Election in Frankfurt. In the words of a guest of the Düsseldorf court, “[the orchestra was] a felicitous lot of fine artists.” The amount of money Johann Wilhelm invested in courtly show was not atypical for its time, but he did receive criticism from his fellow Electors. Johann Wilhelm dreamt of being named a King.

J.S. BACH - 1714 Sibermann Organ of Freiberg Cathedral - David Goode

J.S. BACH - 1714 Sibermann Organ of Freiberg Cathedral - David Goode
ID: SIGCD261
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Kolektion: BaroqueSubkolektion: Organ

David Goode performs a grand selection of some of Bach’s best organ works - including the famed Passacaglia and Fugue in C minor - providing modern listeners with a unique chance to hear Bach’s music as congregations of that period may have done.
The Gottfried Silbermann organ of Freiberg cathedral is one of a handful of such 18th-century instruments (built during Bach’s lifetime) to have remained largely unmodified to this day. Bach’s work as an organ inspector shows that he tested and inaugurated a number of Silbermann’s organs in Germany and, although there is no record that he played this instrument, its sound is undoubtedly one that Bach would have recognised and composed for.

J.F. Rameau - Keyboard Works - Jill Crossland, piano

J.F. Rameau - Keyboard Works - Jill Crossland, piano
ID: SIGCD278
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Kolektion: Instrumental

Jean-Philippe Rameau’s modest output of works for keyboard (around 50 in total) are a crowning influence in French 18th-century instrumental music - summed up by one commentator as being “a paradigm of his mastery, for surveying it is to review many facets of his greatness”. Famed for his additional contributions to French opera and for his advances in musical theory of the day, his keyboard works are beguiling in their mix of subtle beauty and virtuosity. The characterful works invoke both pictorial and poetic themes - a style that performer Jill Crossland describes as an “ability to characterise, to construct a miniature world in a few instants.”

Even though the full title of this album indicates that it contains George Frederick Handel's Water Music, potential purchasers need to know that only the Suite No. 1 in F major from Water Music is included, along with other works. This misleading title should not detract from appreciation of the quality of the music, for the period style performances by the European Union Baroque Orchestra of the Overture to Admeto, the Concerto Grosso in F major, and vocal works that feature soprano Maria Keohane, are certainly attractive and worth having in their own right. Led by harpsichordist Lars Ulrik Mortensen, the small Baroque orchestra plays with clean lines and crisp articulation, and the ensemble's sound is convincingly authentic. Keohane sings with grace and elegant phrasing, and demonstrates a fine sense of embellishment and tonal production in her dramatic interpretations of the solo cantatas Ero e Leandro and Ah! Che troppo ineguali, as well as the aria Tu del Ciel ministro eletto from the oratorio Il trionfo del Tempo e del Disinganno. On the whole, this is a representative sampler of Handel's instrumental and vocal music that is definitely worth hearing, though any listeners who seek the complete Water Music need to look elsewhere. ˜ Blair Sanderson, Rovi
