Ko Matsushita: Consolatio. Contemporary Choral Music


Ko Matsushita, born in 1962, approaches choral music in many ways. He himself composes and arranges for choir and his works are performed worldwide. At the same time, he is active as a conductor and artistic director of numerous choirs, which have always gained recognition foroutstanding performances at international competitions. Matsushita has received several awards, including the “Robert Edler Prize for Choral Music” in 2005 – the first Asian conductor to do so. Under the direction of Georg Grün, the KammerChor Saarbrücken, one of Germany's leading chamber choirs, dedicates this recording to Matsushita's sacred works for a cappella choir. In addition, the Lieder cycle op. 6 by Max Reger and the famous choral transcription Im Abendrot by Clytus Gottwald after the Adagietto from the 5th Symphony by Gustav Mahler can be heard.

… Besonders beeindruckend ist hierbei die Dynamik des Chores, der vom dreifachen Pianissimo bis zum dreifachen Forte die gesamte Palette an Gestaltungsmöglichkeiten bietet. Ein gelungenes Album, von mir empfohlen für einen nachdenklichen Winterabend mit schwerem Rotwein im Glas.
