Andreas Hammerschmidt: Also hat Gott die Welt geliebt. Choral works for Passion and Easter

Description

Andreas Hammerschmidt’s vocal works are known to the wider public today mainly through only a few pieces such as "Machet die Tore weit" or "Also hat Gott die Welt geliebet". Hammerschmidt’s output encompasses a wide range of the most varied musical forms: sacred concertos and cantatas, motets and instrumental pieces, and secular vocal works. Like Schütz, Hammerschmidt’s music is inspired primarily by the text and it is also musically refined. This CD is the second recording with the ensemble Gli Scarlattisti under Jochen Arnold. It presents works by Andreas Hammerschmidt and his contemporary Johann Rosenmüller. These vocal compositions for Passion and Easter show that both composers rank alongside the greatest Protestant-Lutheran church music composers before Johann Sebastian Bach, including Heinrich Schütz and Johann Hermann Schein.

Reviews

Carus’s devotion to the music of Andreas Hammerschmidt is one of the most encouraging features of their ever-expanding catalogue of recent recordings. […] Jochen Arnold marshals the forces of Gli Scarlattisti with assurance.
Jonathan Woolf, www.musicweb-international.com, April 2014

Das Ensemble hat sich mittlerweile zu einem kompetenten Spezialisten im frühbarocken Repertoire entwickelt. Es nennt sich Vokalistenensemble und stellt damit hohe vokale Ansprüche, denen es auf dieser neuen Einspielung gerecht wird.

[…] jedem Interessierten zu empfehlen; sie ist ein weiterer wichtiger Beitrag zur Hammerschmidt-Renaissance.
Johan van Veen, Toccata, September 2013

Das Album mit dem Vokalsolisten-Ensemble Gli Scarlattisti samt Instrumentalisten unter der Leitung von Jochen Arnold bringt die Motetten, Concerti und Kantaten beider barocker Meister mit eindringlicher Hinwendung und prägnanter Artikulation zum Klingen.
Mannheimer Morgen, 8. August 2013

A nice survey of Hammerschmidt's oeuvre.
