Schütz: Kleine geistliche Konzerte II. Complete recording, Vol. 17

Description

Heinrich Schütz’s compositions were hugely influenced by the horrors of the Thirty Years’ War. He continually assimilated his anxious and painful experiences into his works, but in the process created an optimistic, peaceful view of the future. His Kleine geistliche Konzerte II are also a highly sensitive response to the social conditions of the time. A CD recording of these works is now being released as part of the Schütz Complete Recording. This is one of the last recordings with the harpsichordist, organist, and conductor Ludger Rémy, who died in 2017 after a long illness. Hans-Christoph Rademann pays tribute to his long-time colleague in a personal foreword.

Reviews

Little Masterpieces ... The selections are beautifully sung. There’s a quiet intimacy to these works that Ludger Rémy and his musicians successfully capture.
Ralph Graves, wtju.net, 25.06.2018

 

...ein wunderbar eingesungenes Ensemble. Das Ergebnis ist ein hochidiomatischer Schütz-Gesang ohne Schwächen, im fortwährenden Wechsel von individueller Präsenz und echter Ensemblegeste.
Matthias Lange, klassik.com, 03.05.2018

 

Die Solostimmen sind von bezaubernder Reinheit, die emotionalen Botschaften auch verbal gut zu vestehen.
Jens-Uwe Sommerschuh, Sächsische Zeitung Dresden, 06.02.2018

 

Auch ohne Andacht kann man mit den exzellent gespielten Konzerten etwas Ruhe in die Fastenzeit bringen.
