Scherchen was one of the leading conductors in the middle part of the twentieth century, especially valued for his pioneering performances of the contemporary music of his time. He was essentially self-taught as a musician and became a violist in the Blüthner Orchestra and the Berlin Philharmonic when he was 16. In 1911 he was an assistant to Arnold Schoenberg in the preparation of Pierrot Lunaire for performance.

Ernst Theodor Wilhelm Hoffmann (Königsberg , January 24, 1776 – Berlin, June 25, 1822), who changed his third name to Amadeus in honour to Mozart, is one of the best-known representatives of German Romanticism, and a pioneer of the fantasy genre, with a taste for the macabre. He was also a jurist, composer, music critic, draftsman and caricaturist.
As a musician, he composed about 80 works, including several operas, among them Aurora (1811-12), after Franz von Holbein, and Undine (1814), after Baron Friedrich de la Motte Fouqué's tale, one symphony, sacred and chamber music, as well as instrumental pieces.

Graun was in his mid-twenties when he composed this Grand Passion . It is a surprisingly mature work, full of subtle gems. When first listening to this two-CD album, I wrote: “The music is very pleasant. Although it is quite tuneful, little of it is memorable and at two hours tends to wear out its welcome. There is almost a monotonous similarity of one number to the next. It needs something rousing like the ‘Hallelujah’ chorus.” Repeated hearings of this album have increased my appreciation considerably. Even Handel liked this Passion , and quoted some of its music in his own works.

Classical | WEB FLAC (tracks) & d. booklet | 60:43 min | 338 MB
Label: CPO | Tracks: 08 | Rls.date: 2016

CPO didn't want listeners to wait any longer! This new release is the second of Gernsheim's symphonies, premiering nos. 3 and 4. One might ask themselves while listening ""Is that Brahms?"" however they would be mistaken. Gernsheim's lyricism and especially the horn sound in his first movement, encourage the listener to appreciate his less well-known symphonies. Of all his symphonies, it is the one that calls for the largest ensemble, with an english horn, bass clarinet, tuba and cymbals in addition to the usual orchestra of the nineteenth century. This work creates the impression of a continuation of the second symphony while mixing relaxed and orchestrally thinned-out passages with energetic tutties.

Hermann Max and his Rheinische Kantorei present an entirely new facet in the oeuvre of the opera composer Giacomo Meyerbeer on this recording premiere of his sacred chroal works. In the booklet, Max himself writes, ""The protagonists of the Enlightenment influenced Giacomo's social network in letters and conversations during his early years. It was only logical that religious texts were viewed more in literary terms than as faith documents to be taken seriously. The stories from the Bible contradicting the laws of nature were taken more nonchalantly than with absolute seriousness and naive faith. Jesus often was mentioned no longer as the Son of God but as the most important human being ever born.

This live concert recording features sacred compositions by Telemann and Bach written about the same time for Hamburg. Among Telemann’s contacts, those with his godson and later successor Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach are especially significant. A great part of the church compositions brought together here, all of them connected with the liturgical performance of music at Hamburg’s five principal churches, number among the documents attesting to their relationship.

Il grande equivoco del nostro tempo è aver scambiato l’innovazione con la semplice padronanza degli strumenti tecnologici e la creatività con la capacità di elaborare forme accattivanti per contenuti sempre uguali. Gli individui dallo spirito veramente creativo, anticonformista e rivoluzionario sono considerati inutili o relegati a un ruolo marginale, mentre le forze spirituali, da cui nasce la vera originalità, sono svilite in nome di un progresso materiale apparentemente alla portata di tutti. Hermann Keyserling, in anticipo su tutti gli intellettuali dell’età contemporanea, individua qui la sfida potente e terribile che ognuno di noi ha di fronte, nella quale si gioca non solo l’avvenire dell’umanità, ma anche la possibilità di una piena espressione della libertà personale.

In an age of artistic conformity, Jan Dismas Zelenka (1679-1745) had a refreshingly individual voice. In his own time he was described as 'a reserved, bigoted Catholic, but also a respectable, quiet, unassuming man, deserving of the greatest respect'. His music earned Bach's respect for its serious contrapuntal procedures; today's listeners, though, are more immediately charmed by Zelenka's quirky turns of phrase and flashes of original genius. There are plenty of these in the Passion oratorio Gesù al Calvario (1735), one of the composer's three late oratorios.
