Notes and Editorial Reviews

The 27 concerti of the "Symphoniae sacrae II" by Heinrich Schütz are milestones in the development of the German-language sacred concerto for virtuoso solo singers, instruments and basso continuo: highly sophisticated, complex, moving, musically and historically valuable and compositionally refined, with exceptional concentration of events and wealth of ideas. With this volume 18 of the Schütz Complete Recording, Hans-Christoph Rademann and a number of excellent soloists such as Dorothee Mields and Georg Poplutz have again made a recording of exemplary quality. Hans-Christoph Rademann is one of the most sought after choral conductors and widely-acknowledged specialists of choral sound in the world. His concerts and Read more recordings of music with the Dresdner Kammerchor and Dresdner Barockorchester from the 17th and 18th centuries, particularly the musical treasures of central Germany, are pioneering. He is professor of choral conducting at the Hochschule fur Musik Carl Maria von Weber in Dresden, and Artistic Director of the Erzgebirge Music Festival. Read less

 Outstanding performance November 8, 2018 By David Gulbenkian (Lakewood, CO) See All My Reviews "A very vigorous and lively performance. Of the three volumes of Symphoniae Sacrae produced by Deutschlandfunk Cultur and Carus, this is my favorite. I prefer these pieces for 1, 2 or 3 vocal soloists to the choir-amplified compositions of Vol. III, where the clarity of the lines and words can get a little muddied. The pieces are mostly passages from the Psalms and New Testament in the Luther translation. The music savors strongly of Monteverdi." Report Abuse
