Text in englischer Sprache verfügbar

If you dipped into the music at random, you might guess that Latvian composer Eriks Esenvalds shares the minimalist style of many of his Baltic contemporaries. There are sparse, limpid passages, but elsewhere he is lush, with dense multipart textures that push the limits of tonality. Esenvalds deploys various languages in the service of texts that he, with some effort, devises himself: the final Passion and Resurrection here is not a setting of a preexisting religious text, but consists, somewhat in the manner of John Rutter, of texts assembled from various sources by the composer himself. All the variations in musical language are deployed in the service of the texts, which may be quite unusual. Some may feel that Esenvalds' method works better in smaller works, where the unusual quality of his text selection is vividly illustrated, than in the Passion setting. For this, the first recording of the composer's works in North America (it's indicative of his success that the album has been commercially successful in Britain as well), the performers choose a work with North American material: a Navajo origin story, condensed by Esenvalds himself. Both this and the Sami-inspired Rivers of Light consist mostly of prose, but Esenvalds' musical language is so flexible that the effect is highly poetic. Sample Rivers of Light, whose text also gives the album its Doors of Heaven title. The X factor here is the strong, enthusiastic performance by the Portland State Chamber Choir and soloists, with instruments, under conductor Ethan Sperry, who has won praise locally for adventurous programming. The student singers respond by punching above their weight vocally, and this is surely an ensemble to watch on the U.S. West Coast. The sound, recorded at Portland's St. Stephen's Catholic Church, is not quite equal to the extremely quiet opening of Rivers of Light, but the effect comes through.

Hans-Christoph Rademann - Eine Herzensangelegenheit

Der Dirigent Hans-Christoph Rademann über die Musik von Heinrich Schütz

Orfeo Orchestra - Französischer Barock des 18. Jh. wiederauferstanden

Das Orfeo Orchestra, unter der Leitung György Vashegyis, das sich seit seinen ersten Veröffentlichungen intensiv mit der französischen Barockmusik beschäftigt, wurde in den letzten Jahren vom Palazetto Bru Zane und insbesondere vom Centre de Musique Baroque de Versailles (CMBV) für ihre anspruchsvollen diskografischen Erkundungen des französischen Opernrepertoires in Barock und Klassik ausgezeichnet.

10 Fragen an Günter Hänssler

Der Geschichte von hänssler CLASSIC liegt zunächst eine Verlagsgeschichte zugrunde. Friedrich Hänssler senior hatte das Lied “Auf Adlers Flügeln getragen” geschrieben und suchte vergeblich nach einem Musikverlag, was ihn dazu veranlasste, selbst einen zu gründen. Günter Hänssler, Erbe dieses Familienunternehmens, erzählt uns, was die Labels hänssler CLASSIC und PROFIL besonders prägten und welche Künstler-Kollaborationen zum besonderen Klang beigetragen haben.
