...Any so much with a production and of the interpreters but with some real Schutz compositions. I had it there is it enjoyed previously his 'Wiechnachthistorie' (SWV 435) but these other works do not appeal in a same way. Perhaps too much narrative partorisca my flavours and any quite musical accompaniment.

大バッハのちょうど百年前に生まれたシュッツ。彼の作品はその業績に反して、あまりポピュラリティを獲得していないのだが、古楽好きならずとも聴き逃せないものが多い。特に晩年の「三つの受難曲」は、あまたある受難曲のなかでも異彩を放つ傑作だ。

シュッツはこの作品群を、合唱と二人の独唱者(福音史家とキリスト)のみの歌唱で構成する無伴奏曲として作曲した。その意図の解釈には諸説あるようだが、結果としてこれらの作品群は、装飾音を極端にそぎ落とした「裸の御神体」として、音楽史に深く鈍い輝きを放つことになる。

どの楽曲も、きわめて内省的な音律が印象的。後世の受難曲が「外に向かって開いた布教のための音楽」であるのに対し、シュッツは歌い手と聴き手の魂を安易に救済しない。彼はどこまでも毅然とした音の連なりで、福音書の預言に光をあてていく。
ここでシュッツが掲げた光が、もし現代に生きる人々の心を照らすとしたら、それは彼が生きた時代の、三十年戦争で疲弊し切ったドイツと、今の我々を取り巻く状況とが、どこかで繋がっているために違いない。

本作で合唱を担当するアルス・ノヴァ・コペンハーゲンは、1979年の創設。デンマーク屈指の実力を持つ声楽アンサンブルであり、首席指揮者にヒリアーを迎えた2003年以降は国際的な活動が目立つ。
また本作には多くのゲスト(受難曲における独唱者、オラトリオにおける器楽アンサンブル)が迎えられている。それぞれの歌唱/演奏能力も高く、これらをまとめるヒリアーの緻密で苛烈な指揮ぶりは、いっそう驚くべきものである。

なお本作で強烈な印象を与えるジャケットアートは、ドイツ表現主義の画家カール・シュミット=ロットルフのレリーフ作品「四人の福音史家」。シュッツが作曲しなかったマルコを含むこれらの人物像は、人間の「業」や「原罪」を巧みに表現しているように思える。CD制作側の意図がそのあたりにあるのだとしたら、これはレコード史に残る素晴らしいセンスではないだろうか。

This attractive box of 4 disks dipped of 2011 is a overflowing hoards of miraculous music and glorious music-doing. Of a breathtakingly affecting lyricism of some hearts with his ingeniously expressive polyphonic scene-painting, to a direct dramatic power and harrowing beauty of a brief arioso sections, Schütz' narrative works for Passiontide is essential pillars of a repertory, worthy to be beside some work more is of a Renaissance and Baroque. Particularly well, here, it is a sublimate t. John Passione' SWV 481, and a more-often-listened but no-less stunning esincluso Words of Christ in Cross' SWV 478, both works of the old age of a composer, both marvels of melodic invention and structural economy. Certainly some sections of only narrative extensions in a St. Luke And St. Matthew marks can the time approaches a heavy with some hearts and ariosi immediately resupplying the sure relief as well as the tautening of needful dramatic tension. Although any less serious in intent, a 'Auferstehungshistorie' (A History of Resurrection) SWV 450 mark one interesting contrast to a plus somber narrative of passion, with some evangelist data finally some substantial melodic material to do with. Hillier The interpretations are consistently glorious, like a well could expect, a Ars Copenaghen near New enthusiastically responsive to the his masterly direction, unerringly well, fully committed and invariably convincing. A sound registered of Germania is always-interesting DaCapo is in the first place-has imposed. A neighbour comes with full documentation, and each disk is individually packaged in his own sturdy map slipcase.

An album is rounded was with the serviceable--does not add -- action of a 'Wienachtshistorie' (History navideña). This, perhaps a better composer-known work, evokes the class of lambent chiaroscuro pictures-that alive with his much warmer, coloreados--and characterful--arias and hearts. These lies of action to somewhere in a interpretive mediates halfway among Louis Devos' pedestrian 1986 reading for Erato, and Kidney Jacobs' cartoonishly frenetic action for Harmony Mundi (the majority recently king-issued in 2011). While there is at all technically 'wrong' with Hillier is to take on a work, some looks of action bit it bland to my ears, especially where pacing and the characterisation is concerned; this in spite of some undeniably beautiful flange and more than pertinent accompaniment. Instead, it would recommend any 1990 rendition for Robert Re with John Mark Ainsley and a King Consort in Hyperion/Helios (in spite of his oddly his instrumental dulled), or EMI wonderful register for Andrew Parrott with Nigel Rogers, Emma Kirkby, David Thomas and a Gabrielli Consort (king-issued in a Virgin Veritas focus).

Hillier Glorious actions of a Schutz the passions are enthusiastically recommended.

Excellent spouse, satisfyingly presenting Schutz narrative saint, perhaps with personality too small but looking authenticity? I am still in the moment to the so only reissue of Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau St. Mathew, A prompt and excellent register of Archiv like this far so only reissued in the box 'complete'!

This neighbour of two disks, has has titled ‘Psalms and Music partorisca Paz', is a twentieth and final volume in a complete Schütz serious of a Dresdner Kammerchor, the instruments and the vocal soloists have directed for Hans-Christoph Rademann. Emotional besides the collections and works of entities of a composer that comprises Geistliche Chormusik, Symphoniae Sacrae and Psalmen Davids, some biblical histories and Musicalische Exequien, of the neighbours in the amena the compound work for concrete occasions like this of the pairs, anniversaries, celebrations of peaces and memorial services. They go in the variety of formats and valuing, varying of intimate pieces the law of big stairs of double heart with episodes for alone voices and marked with the instrumental accompaniment and that comprises the pair of the chapel choral pieces.

Flange, touching and the direction is exceptional, looking for having grown better and better during a series that arrived in this final volume. For a more richly scored works, Rademann and his Dresden the forces deploy a full row of instruments of period to comprise serious, recorders, cornetti, trombones, dulcians and continuous instruments. Each one which of some nineteen works in these two disks is of diverse interest - all a plus like this of then, not forming part of a more oft-the collections add registered, the majority of them was unfamiliar mine and, I suspect, can be like this to other enthusiasts. To mention so only the pocolos aim have underlined, a psalm ‘Wo gives Herr nicht gives Haus bauet' (CDI, follows 1) forms the splendid, richly scored and majestic opening to a program. ‘Veni Sancte Spiritus' (I/3) offers ecstatic text and music and adventurous harmonies, amply embellished for cornetti and other instruments. ‘Wo Gott, gives Herr, nicht bei some hält' (I/4) door so only good-looking soprano does of Gerlinde Sämann and Isabel Schicketanz - just two of the number to surface stars in this Schütz serious - as well as it notarise them differential valuing contrasting with other pieces. ‘Herr, gives of the bist vormals genädig gewest' (I/6) is the full work of contrast with chorals, so only, concerted vocal episodes and notarises them.

Emotional on to an equally varied according to disk, ‘Gives pacem, Dominate' (II/1) is the rich-textured saint frame permeated throughout for a heartfelt prayer of his title; ‘Gesang gives drei Männer im feurigen Ofen' (II/2) is an unusual piece in the earth has repeated, enhanced for ringing cornetto parts; ‘Tugend ist gives beste Freund' (II/3) boasts delicious series ritornelli and wonderful duetting for sopranos Dorothee Mields and Isabel Schicketanz. ‘Danklied: Fürstliche Gnade zu Wasser und Lande' Is based in the very attractive melody apresamiento up for some four vocal soloists in turn (II/4). ‘Vater Abraham, erbarme dich mein' is the dialogue animadamente dramatic with beautiful Monteverdian ritornelli (II/7). A final two elements, Trauermusik and Trostlied (II/9 and 10) takes different appearances of a music of a composer ‘Musikalische Exequien' – a prime minister that touches it and uplifting song to cry in an early death in 1625 of woman Anna of a composer Magdalena, fantastically rendered here for tenor Georg Poplutz and a low continuous group; and a second an intimate he chapel the piece that marks a death of the young girl of the familiar known to a composer.

The notes of booklet are interesting and extremely informative, the texts and the translations are comprised, and his registered in a Radeberg Stadtkirche is in the first place-classifies. There is the wealth of beautiful but music little known is and in a leading volume (19) of this complete Schütz serious and, like this already mentioned, some works are enhanced further here for exceptional musicianship. I simply lovers of impulse of this composer - although they are already familiarised with some utmost has has published collections - to listen some works in some good-looking that concludes dipped of this invaluable Dresden serious.

A forward reviewer had said you all need to know in this together of CD. This in spite of, calm does not want to buy in his own.

Is available like the part of a third there is boxed dipped of some complete register, which easily can be found with the fast investigation on here, and calm so only will owe that pay roughly fifteen crux more to take nine CDs.

But yes go to buy a third there is boxed place, would be to do your ears the terrible injustice any to add a forward two yours order.

Is looking in in the books of hundred for a three, but like any one calms does not need never buy another CD for a rest of your life, ossia the subject .

So only agree to do a bit calm time for calm to in fact listen his. It is not background music, need the give your full attention. A DVD comprised with one the together prime minister boxed will explain further.

Is the few clicks out of some complete works of Heinrich Schutz. I implore you partorisca go advance with a compraventa musical better calm never frames.

To explain, once Schutz has calm 'taken', have all a calm music never need.

well, if I do not know the one who schuetz is, ossia the introduction adds his fashion. To my knowledge, the majority of his work is religious, as if you are a athiest/antithiest, could want to steer clear compositions. This in spite of, if you are a athiest/antithiest and is done the remote east, is probably backsliding and looking to listen to some saint music so only for an emotion to betray your own personal faiths. If ossia a chance , then my partner, is regime. Ossia The really enjoyable example of germanic baroque saint music without significantly in entertained defects.
Already know schuetz and is looking to develop your library, ossia the good addition . There is the collection of his motets of 6 part for a emanuel heart (?) Ossia Positively orgasmic. It controls era!

The one who the revelation 'A History navideña' was mine. A splendid work! Something wants to listen on and on again. No the only dulls piece. A pair to pursue of music and text with wonderful vocal rhythms.

My favourite register of 'A History navideña,' for a way, was in an old Vanguard elepé.

I have chosen this up like a consultor as to the that Bach Magnificat would have to that touch like when it is very sung. I have had, partorisca a first time of pupil, signed until singing in the heart and has had any thought that . Bad election to the equal that drives in my level, but inspired by of the terms of just a joy partorisca listen the such good-looking music like this fantastically touched and sung.
Other descriptions have very commented well in some composers and of the concrete pieces in detail, as I will not repeat him . It suffices partorisca say that a CDs is everything exceptional, but all pale in comparison with a CD with a diverse Magnificats. It has been in my player of CD more than any another has bought of this together of boxes.
A joy some partorisca listen to. I discover more and more in a music in these CDs every time listens to them. They are not the musician I, but here really can feel like Suzuki and his crew is really saying histories with his interpretations of these pieces add of music.

I have ordered these CD years does partorisca help me learn one 7/4 metre 'Covered some Rooms' partorisca the Dickens caroling group to the as it has belonged, and have fallen enamoured with each alone song. It has included helped solves one argues old has used partorisca have with friends of church that insisted 'As Brightly Shines a Star of Morning' has not been the song navideña but a song of Epiphany. It results it was both wrong! A Philipp Nicolai the work has been sung the usher in a Christian season of Arrival, before Navidad. Another reason partorisca love this collection is an a lot of J.S. Bach Works in this CD that comprises a work of organ 'In Saying ist Freude' often touched in of the pairs, 'Brich A, Or schones Morgenlicht' of 'A Christmas Oratorio' and 'Wachet Auf' of a fourth movement of Bach' Sung 140. A soloist Janice Chandler sings soyary Song of Cradle', esweet Jesus Chico Small' and ' has a Whole World in his Hands' as fantastically me ameno the tears every time. A CD could call Christmas Around a World with an Italian carol 'Yours Low tiles crash' in the lilting and lovely 6/8 metre, a German 'Kling, Glockchen, Kling' where a sound of singers like this of the bells, and John Rutter fixed of an English carol 'Here come a-Wassailing'. A wonderful Christmas choral album, very balanced and very executed for an Orchestra and Corazón of a Society of Choral Arts of Washington (DC).
