Herbert von Karajan, Berliner Philharmoniker, Wiener Singverein - Beethoven: Missa Solemnis [2008/1979]

Beethoven - Missa Solemnis (Herbert von Karajan, Anna Tomowa-Sintow, Ruža Baldani, Eric Tappy, José van Dam) [2008/1979]
NTSC 4:3 (720x480) VBR | Latin (LinearPCM, 2 ch) | (DTS, 6 ch) | 7.11 Gb (DVD9) | 83 min
Classical | Deutsche Grammophon | Sub: Latin, Deutsch, English, Francais, Espanol, Chinese

Karajan surmounted this pinnacle of the choral-symphonic repertoire - which Beethoven himself called "the greatest work I have composed" - no fewer than four times in the recording studio, but only once live and on film: in this unique document from the 1979 Salzburg Easter Festival. The atmosphere of Salzburg's Festspielhaus and festival audience adds a special frisson to this conductor's classic interpretation of the Missa solemnis.

Karl Böhm conducting the Requiem: one of the foremost Mozart conductors of the 20th century in one of Mozart’s most admired works. Singers Gundula Janowitz, Christa Ludwig, Peter Schreier and Walter Berry join forces to form a brilliant cast of soloists. Taped in 1971 at the Piaristenkirche in Vienna, this is a rare document of outstanding artistic quality.

Brahms - Ein deutsches Requiem (Herbert von Karajan, Berliner Philharmoniker) [2008/1978]

Herbert von Karajan conducted Brahms's choral masterpiece frequently throughout his long career, but only once on film and with both of these outstanding soloists. This unique document from the 1978 Salzburg Easter Festival was acclaimed by Diapason as "a magical interpretation, prodigiously realized … with a sublime fusion of timbres, a cohesion and, ultimately, a simplicity that are truly unequalled."

"Gideon is an oratorio put together after Handel’s death by John Christopher Smith, son of the composer’s long-serving secretary and copyist of the same name…One thing should be made plain at once about Gideon (and this, I fear, constitutes a slap on the wrist for Naxos): the balance of materials included by the younger Smith is, on the evidence of Naxos’s own booklet, not at all as described in the blurb on the back of the box. There, we are told “The 1769 oratorio Gideon, with a new libretto by Handel’s former collaborator Thomas Morell, uses music largely drawn from Handel’s work, sacred and secular, with a lesser number of elements by Smith himself.”

Helig, heilig, heilig ist Gott ("Holy, Holy, Holy is God") comes from a portion of the catalog of Georg Philipp Telemann not often sampled on recordings, the cantatas he composed for the consecration of churches. They are 13 in number, minus two that are lost, and certain ones contain some of Telemann's biggest and boldest conceptions in sacred music outside of his Passions. It was written in 1747 for the re-opening of the Dreieinikeitskirche in St. Georg, a suburb of Hamburg. St. Georg was growing rapidly as Hamburgers fled disease and overcrowding in the city.

Jean Guyot was another of the composers of the post-Josquin generation active in the Low Countries in the mid-sixteenth century. (He was also a priest, author and teacher, although the details of much of his life remain vague.) Cinquecento has previously explored his secular music (on Amorosi pensieriCDA68053), but it was Guyots sacred music which was largely responsible for the high reputation he seemingly enjoyed in his lifetime. Cinquecento proves equally authoritative in both.

Odhecaton make their debut on Arcana with the Missa Papae Marcelli by Palestrina, a recording sure to become a benchmark for this sacred masterwork of contrapuntal and formal perfection, exemplifying the important compositional techniques of the time. Some of the finest Italian male voices, specialists in the performance of Renaissance and Baroque music, sing in Odhecaton under the direction of Paolo Da Col. Since 1998 Odhecaton has been the recipient of some of the most prestigious discographic awards: De Passione (Josquin Desprez) was awarded the Diapason d Or of the Year 2003, while the more recent O gente brunette (Ramee) took the Diapason d Or of February 2010.

This 2004 survey of modern settings of the medieval sequence Stabat Mater Dolorosa is part of conductor Marcello Viotti's project to record the little-known but worthy sacred works of the twentieth century, in conjunction with the Munich Radio Orchestra and the Bavarian Radio Chorus for their concert series Paradisi gloria. The four works by Francis Poulenc, Karol Szymanowski, Krzysztof Penderecki, and Wolfgang Rihm are dramatically different in conception and musical content, and may be regarded more as reflections of personal faith than as practical works for ecclesiastical purposes.

Joris Verdin plays both the harmonium and the organ in Nancy (France) and Bergen op Zoom (Netherlands) on this unique double CD of religious music by Franz Liszt (1811-1886). From sweet intimacy through intoxicating harmonies and charming melodies to sheer grandeur: Liszt has it all. With the help of top soloists and the fine voices of Psallentes, this is more than two hours of sheer pleasure, nineteenth-century style.

Manfred Barbarini Lupus (ca 1560) was a popular composer during the mediaeval and Renaissance periods. The St. Gallen Monastery, for whom these works were composed, was one of the most influential in Europe at that time. Performing these works is the Ensemble Ordo Virtutum. The ensemble was founded by musicologist Professor Dr. Stefen Johannes Morent, and specializes in mediaeval music.

Genius can be defined in a number of ways. One such definition is to be the right person in the right place at the right time; another is to have the capacity to move your audience to tears. Monteverdi meets both these criteria with flying colours. His professed ambition was to "move the passions of the soul," thereby drawing tears from his audience, and he achieved this with greater efficacy than any of his contemporaries. The use of the word "madrigal" on the title pages of his eight collections (and a posthumous Ninth Book from 1651) is therefore deceptive, concealing radical stylistic changes which brilliantly reflect the turbulent, exciting times in which he lived.
