Quote from: 71 dB on March 21, 2008, 01:02:00 AMNo need. For now, I am happy buying Tangerine Dream, Autechre, Colin MacIntyre, Lowgold etc.
Quote from: erato on April 17, 2008, 10:57:04 AMJust bought this stunning record:Some of the best German concertoes this side of Bach, superb playing and great sonics. Written for Hannover by a (assumedly) Bruxellois.
Quote from: Que on April 17, 2008, 10:27:46 PMIt sounds indeed like a mixture of French, German and Italian Baroque styles, and it has a slight Händelean flavour as well, don't you think?Q
Quote from: Que on April 30, 2008, 10:32:02 AMThese seem also serious contenders:
Quote from: fl.traverso on April 30, 2008, 09:59:47 PMI don't understand what you meant by the word "contenders" -- the recordings you quoted are of different works by the great Schutz....
QuoteIMO the most recorded work by him must be the Musikalisches Exequien. Do you have a good recording of it already? My favourite remains that sung by the Dresdener Kreuzchorconducted by Rudolf Mauersberger (Berlin Classics). Peter Schreier was a superb Evangelist and tenor soloist. An early effort at HIP by DDR forces but like David Hill's rendition of the Victoria Requiem, it offers a totally convincing account of the work at hand, so much so it would lead one to believe that their interpretation totally embodies the music's 'spirit.'In the case of Mauersburger Schutz, it sends shivers down my spine just to recall Schreier'seloquent delivery of some of the composer's most fervently austere music....
QuoteI also tried Junghanel's Symphoniae sacre and Psalmen Davids and found both a bit cold (myresponse!). Hilliard Ensemble's recording of the Opus ultimum (Virgin), on the other hand, turned out to be much superior than I expected.
Quote from: Que on April 30, 2008, 10:35:31 PMthough a rather complicating factor will be that I do not like Peter Schreier.
Quote from: Que on April 30, 2008, 10:32:02 AMCould I have some of your Heinrich Schütz favourites - works & recordings - please? A composer who inexplicably escaped my attention till now! Any comments on these?And what about the Weser-Renaissance under Cordes? Just some random observations - please enlighten me! Q
Quote from: erato on May 01, 2008, 03:22:34 AMThis is my favorite recording of anything by Schutz:
Quote from: Harry on May 01, 2008, 03:47:51 AMWell Que, I can vouch for the CPO recordings, and the one from Accent. I have them, and think WR a fine group of singers.I have certainly a lot of vocal music from Schutz, to much to post here all, but I would also stress the Brilliant releases as being on top of my list.I hope you find enough pleasure in them.
Quote from: Que on May 01, 2008, 11:39:36 AMAh, can't miss - almost anything by Bernius is bound to be exceptional! But of course, it being on Sony Vivarte it will be 100% OOP and difficult to find.. But I've got around that before - so off goes the hunt, and thanks for the rec.
Quote from: erato on May 02, 2008, 12:16:10 AMWhat wonderful news (ugly cover though).Do you know if the rest of the Vivarte series will surface here, and if the reissus will be available outside Germany?
Quote from: Que on May 02, 2008, 01:16:49 AMCovers of the series are gastly...Went through the whole series, and I guess this (very recent) issue is the only - and hopefully first - from the Vivarte series. Never saw these issues other than on jpc or in Germany.Q
Quote from: bassio on May 02, 2008, 11:47:10 AMNow a word is needed on his instrumental music .. which I failed to find on record on the internet.
