Rheinberger: Ave Maria (Musica Sacra X)

Description

Today Rheinberger is known primarily as a composer of motets for several voices and for masses for mixed choir. On the other hand, the fact that he also composed a whole series of solo works or choral works for women's voices is today much less well known, although he wrote such works throughout his entire creative life and a good number of these are among his most popular and commercially successful compositions. Volume 10 of the Rheinberger CD series is dedicated to this interesting, long neglected genre in Rheinberger's sacred oeuvre.

Reviews

[...] Die Interpretation der Werke auf der Aufnahme von 2009 kann der weiteren Verbreitung des Schaffens von Rheinberger nur entgegenkommen - nicht zuletzt durch die herausragenden Qualitäten der Begleiter Götz Payer (Klavier) und Kay Johannsen (Orgel).
(Birger Petersen, Forum Kirchenmusik, November/Dezember 2011)

[...] this CD will come as a breath of fresh air. [...It] takes you on a journey through Rheinberger’s sacred vocal music career. One comes out of the experience enriched and moved. This is also due to the gracious and ideal performances of the three vocalists whose tone quality, although mature and full, is always literally perfectly in tune but also in accord with the style of the music. In addition the use of piano and/or organ is apt and the accompaniments are sensitive and beautifully balanced. [...]
(Gary Higginson, MusicWeb International, January 2011)

 

[...] Lydia Teuscher, Christine Müller und Annette Markert kommen dankenswerter Weise ganz ohne Vibrato und romantisches Pathos aus. Ihr Gesang ist schlicht, anmutig, geprägt durch klare Linien. Er schöpft aus einer inneren Kraft, die das Gesungene sehr glaubwürdig vermittelt.
Man darf sich mit Fug und Recht schon auf die nächste Rheinberger-CD aus dem Hause Carus freuen.

[...] Die Solistinnen Lydia Teuscher (Sopran), Christine Müller (Mezzosopran) und Annette Marken (Alt) interpretieren hier die Stücke mit religiöser Inbrunst und romantischer Empfindung. Josef Gabriel Rheinbergers Vokalwerke sind eine echte Entdeckung!
(Mannheimer Morgen, 14.10.2010)
