Newsletter September 2017

Dear readers!


This coming autumn is once again full of new publications to our customary high standard: our Bach vocal project is reaching its finale, so that this month we are once again able to present new treasures from Bach's sacred vocal works, including the cantatas Ich habe meine Zuversicht (I have placed all my confidence) BWV 188 and Ich steh mit einem Fuß im Grabe (I stand with my open grave before me) BWV 156.

This month also sees the publication of the long-awaited third volume in the LORELEY choral collection series, a wonderful collection of German folk songs in new, up-to-date choral arrangements. The latest volume contains arrangements (for SAM or SSAM) for mixed choirs with just one male voice part.

With best wishes, Carus-Verlag

Telemann: Magnificat in C

This month we publish the first scholarly-critical edition of Telemann's Magnificat in C. Telemann composed this imposing work, like Bach's Magnificat , sumptuously scored with three trumpets and timpani. For ambitious church choirs the work is really worthwhile, and it is also a most effective piece which audiences will enjoy. The complete performance material is of course also available from us.

Peter Schindler: Zirkus Furioso

Sarah Schweiger has followed the composer Peter Schindler and his works since she began working at Carus-Verlag. So she was able to experience at first hand how he works on his pieces with a choir at the Choratelier in 2016. Her favorite piece by him is Zirkus Furioso (Zirkus Allegro). In this musical we live through an eventful, but (because of that) very amusing afternoon with the circus director Leo Pimpelmoser.
