About

On this new CD, the Chor des Bayerischen Rundfunks under the direction of Peter Dijkstra presents itself a cappella in works by Richard Strauss, Gustav Mahler and Richard Wagner. Magnificent tone paintings like Isoldes Liebestod and the Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen radiate a new unprecedented glory in transcriptions for 16-part chorus by Clytus Gottwald.

Thanks to its special tonal homogeneity and stylistic versatility, this ensemble enjoys the highest regard throughout the world. Dutch conductor Peter Dijkstra the artistic director of the ensemble since 2005 is the shooting star on the choral scene and has presented the ensemble together with both BR orchestras in a number of versatile programs.

Recent recordings from 2009 and 2011.
