Das Kleine Konzert
An important release of this magnificent oratorio by CPE Bach.
The oratorio, a substantial work for vocal soloists, choir and orchestra, doesn’t follow the Baroque tradition of a continuous story based on biblical texts, but uses texts of a more general nature in which the emotions connected with the suffering and resurrection of Christ are expressed, in a most moving and pungent way.
Also included on the set is Gott hat den Herrn auferwecket, a charming cantata written for the 1756 Easter services in Berlin and which was probably commissioned by an outside party – given that the composer’s duties at this time were centred around the court of Frederick the Great as a harpsichordist.
Excellent performances by famous soloists Barbara Schlick, Christoph Prégardien, Paul Elliott, Stephen Varcoe and the Early Music band Das Kleine Konzert, conducted by Hermann Max.
Performed by an all‐German cast that includes the renowned Rheinische Kantorei, this release is a welcome addition to Brilliant Classics’ every‐growing discography of CPE Bach repertoire – one that will hopefully go some way towards increasing awareness of one of music history’s most significant composers.
