Notes and Editorial Reviews

Ever since the International Choir Festival C.H.O.I.R. was founded, there has been the tradition of regularly commissioning compositions for the festival choir. These works always display an interrelationship between traditional and modern, between classical musical language and popular elements, between the regional and the universal, between the cultivation of culture and a view into the future. With this concept, the Landesakademie allies itself with the centuries-old tradition of the Benedictine monastery in Ochsenhausen, whose influence as a center of knowledge and the preservation of culture reached far beyond its region. Thus the last decades have seen the creation of outstanding works, some of which have become part of the Read more repertoire of numerous choirs all over Europe. The composer Bobbi Fischer was tasked with building a bridge between Europe and South America. This led to the creation of his Missa latina for bandoneon, solo soprano, choir and jazz ensemble, which is already distinctive thanks to its specific scoring. Musically, his Magnificat is at home in the Carribbean-Cuban region; its instrumentation referring to yet another South American musical tradition. Read less
