Rosenmuller: Sacred Concertos on Psalm 31
4.1 out of 5 stars with 9 reviews
Johann Rosenmuller's vocal oeuvre is distinguished by textual interpretation that is just as finely sensitive as it is highly imaginative and this is seen clearly in the seven settings of Psalm 31 (after Luther's numbering) that are featured on this CD. These various compositions based on the same text prove to be a genuine kaleidoscope of compositional ideas. Rosenmuller implements changing combinations of singers and richly imaginative motivic work, even in the instrumental parts, which are

Brahms: Ein deutsches Requiem, Op. 45
mpn: 028943214025, ean: 0028943214025,
4.8 out of 5 stars with 60 reviews
Musical settings of the Requiem understandably encompass a vast expressive gamut, from Mozart's fear and trembling to the seraphic gentleness of Fauré. But the focus in Brahms's German Requiem--his first large-scale work--is not so much on the departed as on those left behind and the work of memory. In lieu of the traditional Latin liturgy, Brahms uses texts culled from the Lutheran Bible that range from despair at our mortal condition to the solace offered by faith. John Elliott Gardiner

Grieg: Lyric Pieces

4.4 out of 5 stars with 47 reviews
CD Grieg's 66 Lyric Pieces range from simple pretty tunes like the early ''Arietta'' that opens this disc to more extended pieces like the dashing ''Wedding Day at Troldhaugen'' to impressionistic miniature tone poems like the late ''Summer Evening.'' Here, Andsnes plays 24 of them, well-chosen to cover a representative selection from the complete sets. He plays them beautifully, with a lovely tone, virtuoso polish when such is called for, as in the express ride of ''March of the Trolls,'' and

. Don't get too comfortable with this disc's opening minutes, which sound convincingly like a well-tuned consort of viols performing two short pieces by Machaut and Tye. These two works from the 14th and 16th centuries quickly give way to a piece from 1997 by David Lamb. Then come Arvo Part, Harry Partch, John Cage, and even Moondog, a.k.a. Louis Hardin. Additional instruments come and go- -harmonium, bagpipe, zhong ruan, nyckelharpa, drum--all of which complement and enhance the string sounds.

Although he tried several times, Herbert von Karajan never surpassed this 1947 account of Eine Deutsches Requiem with the Vienna Philharmonic, a reading of fervent, post-war intensity. The closest he came in the stereo era was his 1976 remake with the Berlin Philharmonic and the Vienna Singverein. --Ted Libbey.
