Under the overall direction of Hans-Christoph Rademann and the Dresdner Kammerchor, this series is the first complete recording of Heinrich Schütz’s oeuvre. Hans-Christoph Rademann, Artistic Director of the Dresdner Kammerchor, founded in 1985, and Director of the Internationale Bachakademie Stuttgart, is one of the most sought-after choral directors today and this series has been internationally critically acclaimed.

One of his specialisms is early music, in particular exploring the long-forgotten riches of Dresden’s musical heritage and this recording represents a new high point in the first Schütz Complete Recording: very little secular music by Heinrich Schütz survives today.

His songs and wedding music are a precious proof of his masterly madrigalian artistry, a skill which he acquired during his years studying in Venice. Full of emotion and vibrant colour, these works show a new and different picture of the composer which make evident his vitality, his frequently playful wordpainting and his fine wit.

Soloists (including Dorothee Mields and Georg Poplutz) and obbligato instruments - cornetts, violins, trombones, and gambas - combine and intertwine with each other here in captivating melodies. Highly recommended.
