Quote from: Brewski on February 05, 2021, 02:11:19 PMI agree (and I don't know the piece well). But this is the kind of commentary that should be part of a book. (Hint, hint. )--Bruce
Quote from: DavidW on February 05, 2021, 02:38:06 PMThere was a big write up on Richter in the NYTimes recently. I mean since we're talking about Mike's post where he keeps going back to him... thought I'd sharehttps://www.nytimes.com/2021/01/21/arts/music/karl-richter-bach-music.html
Quote from: knight66 on February 09, 2021, 12:09:15 PMVery interesting. I mostly listened to his second St Matthew when I was young. Now I have problems with it, but the soloists are mostly superb. He allows them space and time to get the text across. The instrumental lines in the Ah Golgotha number sound like 20 century music. A lot of the then Original Instrument performances used soloists with white voices, relatively expressionless. Colouring the voice and any vibrato was anathama. I really want the meaning of the words to come across and not be constricted almost to being another instrumental line. Richter is ponderous, but the set is powerful in many ways.
QuoteI don't think mixing the old and new instruments works.
Quote from: Handelian on February 09, 2021, 12:14:41 PMJust acquired the second Herreweghe recording. It really is a fabulously beautiful performance of the great work. I have his first but I think this is even better. Another recording to my somewhat extensive library!
Quote from: DavidW on February 09, 2021, 01:56:33 PMIs that performance OVPP?

Quote from: LKB on April 15, 2022, 09:57:12 AMAgreed, it's wonderful to hear, and more wonderful to sing.
Quote from: OrchestralNut on April 15, 2022, 11:30:16 AMI have no doubt that it must be a thrill to sign!
