Rezension in englischer Sprache verfügbar

New York Polyphony, a male quartet, in many senses calls to mind Anonymous 4, the women's ensemble that made an extraordinary career focusing on early music, but also branching out as far afield as folk song and contemporary repertoire. The collection here is primarily devoted to Medieval and Renaissance pieces, but includes works by modern British composers Peter Maxwell Davies, Kenneth Leighton, and Andrew Smith, and an unfamiliar setting of "Away in a Manger" based on a folk song from Normandy. The bulk of the music was written well before 1600, with a strong emphasis on plainchant. The integration of the diverse repertoire into a single CD is surprisingly effective; the juxtaposition of brief monophonic plainchant with English Renaissance polyphony and contemporary motets is so skillfully programmed that there is no sense of disjunction. Andrew Smith's two motets are especially striking in their simplicity and emotional punch. Like Anonymous 4, the size of the group allows for a wonderfully sensitive balance; the ensemble breathes as a single organism, and the blend, which can vary from perfect homogeneity to the subtle highlighting of a single voice, is marvelous. The group is joined by a women's trio in several works written for more than four parts. The sound is clean and present, with appropriate resonance for this material. For the listener looking for a collection of contemplative Christmas music that steers clear of the most obvious selections and introduces intriguing new repertoire, as well as for the fan of early music vocal ensembles, this album has much to offer.

Beethovens Fidelio - ein großes Abenteuer

Beethovens Oper Fidelio basiert auf einem Ereignis, das sich während der revolutionären Terrorherrschaft in Frankreich zugetragen hat (eine unerschrockene junge Frau versuchte, als Mann verkleidet, ihren in einem Verlies gefangenen Mann zu retten). Die Oper erlebte ein turbulentes Schicksal und wurde im Laufe der Jahre vielfach überarbeitet. Sie beweist einmal mehr das musikalische Genie des Komponisten, der hier ein Libretto vertonte, das seinen politischen Ansichten entsprach.

Danny Elfman in 10 Alben

Danny Elfman hat in den letzten vierzig Jahren seinen ganz persönlichen bunt gefiederten Stil zwischen märchenhaftem, durchgeknalltem, grandiosem Humor und achtsamer Geschmeidigkeit etabliert, der sich aus den eklektischsten Hollywood-Produktionen (von Tim Burton oder Gus Van Sant) herauskristallisiert. Wir blicken auf zehn unvergessliche Alben seiner Diskographie.

Wilhelm Kempff, der Humanist unter den Pianisten

Wilhelm Kempff (1895-1991), Künstler aus einer anderen Zeit, glaubte an die Inspiration: Er war zur Musik gekommen wie zu einer Religion, mit respektvoller Leidenschaft für die alten Meister, denen er diente. Die Kunst von Wilhelm Kempff – sein samtweicher Anschlag, sein Sinn für Phrasierung und sein erzählerischen Vortragsweise – war die eines Tagträumers, halb Dichter, halb Seher, in einer Zeit, als der Ausdruck der Gefühle Vorrang hatte vor allem anderen. Er zeichnete seine Lieblingskomponisten oft wiederholt auf, insbesondere den von ihm vergötterten Beethoven, mit dem er so oft identifiziert wurde. Von dessen Sonaten hinterließ er drei, jeweils zu einem anderen Zeitpunkt seiner persönliche Reife und der Entwicklung der Aufnahmetechnik realisierte Gesamtaufnahmen.
