Vivaldi: Missae & Vesperae (Carus Classics)

Description

On the occasion of its 40th anniversary Carus has initiated a new series Carus Classics, featuring outstanding CD productions from the past library of recordings. This exclusive collection, designed by Friedrich Forssman and Cornelia Feyll, is presented in high-quality DigiPacs and each CD includes an extensive booklet. The revival of Antonio Vivaldi’s music in the 20th century went hand in hand with the new discovery of a large amount of his sacred vocal music which ranged in repertoire from large-scale compositions for the Mass and Vesper to biblical oratorios and solo motets. The first revivals of Vivaldi's church music, including the Gloria and the Credo on the present recording, were received almost as a sensation. They clearly show that, just in the field of church music he attained some of his greatest artistic achievements. "The singing throughout couldn't be more accomplished, ... or the purity of the voices more uniform and delightful to the ear." Classics Today, February 2004

Reviews

40 Jahre Carus - das soll mit einer besonderen Edition gefeiert werden: den Carus Classics. Der Verlag hat in seinem prall gefüllten Schatzkästlein gestöbert und die schönsten Aufnahmen für diese Sonderedition ausgewählt. Dieses schwierige Unterfangen ist bestens geglückt, und die … Aufnahmen bestätigen den guten Ruf des Hauses, wenn es um die Aufnahmen von Chormusik geht. … Der [Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir], eine europäische Spitzenformation, unterstreicht sein Renommee durch einen perfekten Gesamtklang und eine ausbalancierte, klare Stimmführung, die der Musik [Vivaldis] Zeitlosigkeit verleihen.
