Notes and Editorial Reviews



BUXTEHUDE (doubtful) Das jüngste Gericht Manfred Cordes, cond; Weser-Renaissance Bremen cpo 777197 (78:09 Text and Translation)


It is fortunate that this comes so soon after Ton Koopman’s complete recording of this work (30:6), for the analysis of the contents of this disc is made easier. It is frankly called a “selection” from the complete work, for it includes in whole or in part 58 of the 82 numbers in Koopman’s edition. What we have not Read more heard, because Sony has not issued it in this country yet, is another recent complete recording, running to within a few minutes of Koopman’s version, conducted by Roland Wilson on two CDs. Reports of his public performance during anniversary celebrations suggest that no final evaluation of this work is possible until that version is considered.


That leaves Cordes running with the pack of incomplete recorded versions of the music. In his notes Cordes tries to make the best case for fitting the work onto a single CD, since eliminating the most pietistic texts not only makes the work more palatable to modern audiences but tightens the dramatic quality of the libretto. These are not arguments that are often used to cut a work of undisputed worth. It is a stellar performance as far as it goes, the ensemble performing one to a part, the voices well balanced and capable. (The most familiar name is bass Harry van der Kamp.) Indeed, it is a very effective presentation of generous length, a good choice unless you want to hear this important work complete.
