Schütz: Symphoniae Sacrae II. Complete recording, Vol. 18

Description

The 27 concerts of the Symphoniae Sacrae II by Heinrich Schütz represent milestones in the development of the German-language sacred concert for virtuoso vocal soloists, instruments and basso continuo. The compositions are highly developed, complex, moving, music-historically valuable and compositionally sophisticated, with an extraordinary density of events and abundance of ideas.

In Volume 18 of the complete Schütz recording, Hans-Christoph Rademann, supported by selected instrumentalists and excellent soloists such as Dorothee Mields and Georg Poplutz, has once again created a recording of exemplary quality. A worthy monument in sound to Heinrich Schütz.

Reviews

Es ist pure Freude, diese Stücke kennenlernen zu dürfen, und das in solcher Qualität!
Gustav Danzinger, CHOR aktuell, 3/2018

 

As far as I am concerned, this is one of the best if not actually the best ensemble for this glorious repertory. Their quality is consistently outstanding.
American Record Guide, November/Dezember 2018

 

Kann man diese ebenso hinreißende wie tiefgründige Musik noch anspruchsvoller singen und spielen? Anders ja, und das vielleicht auch mit wiederum guten Gründen, aber besser? Der Rezensent meint: Das dürfte kaum möglich sein ... Diese Musik hat in Rademann und seinen versierten Formationen, gerade in der solistischen und in der Konstellation in kleinen Ensembles, ideale Anwälte gefunden.
Matthias Lange, klassik.com, 10.08.2018

 

With such “concord” in mind, Rademann has assembled an impressively diverse assortment of instruments, all of which play solo parts on the tracks to which they contribute ... However, through the diversity of both style and instrumentation, one can listen to either (or both) of the two CDs in the set from start to finish, simply because each track presents the music in its own characteristic light.
Stephen Smoliar, The Rehearsal Studio, 23.06.2018

 

Die fein musizierten Partien haben dank der exquisiten Interpreten – bezaubernde Gesangs- und Instrumentalsolisten, die sich auch deliziös zu Vokal-Duetten und Terzetten vereinen – eine fast schon intime Anmutung und durchdringen die gesungenen Texte bis zum letzten Iota. Die Aufnahme rückt den Zuhörer dabei in direkte Nähe der einzelnen Stimmen, was ihr eine zusätzliche räumliche Dimension verleiht.
