Samuel Scheidt's Geistliche Konzerte or Sacred Concertos, dating from the 1630s, helped spread the Venetian polychoral style in Germany, and thus lay the basis for the development of Baroque ensemble music in that country. They offer an especially troublesome instance of the debate over the appropriate size of the vocal forces in Baroque choral music: Scheidt laid the groundwork for future disagreements when he advertised that the concertos "can be performed with just a few singers" and "have also been composed by me in different volumes for many performers, that is for 8 to 12 voices in two, three, or four choirs." There are quite a few ambiguities there, and certainly nothing to prove that the music wasn't intended for the large performing groups its scale would suggest. These settings of loose adaptations of biblical texts are splendid, festive pieces, illustrating their texts in broad contrasts with lush chromaticism for the darker ideas, rather than in individual details. In this performance, with one voice to a part, the voices blend into brass-instrument textures rather than standing apart as a discrete group. It's still a startling way to perform music in this style, and it may seem to resist the music's natural energy. On the other hand, the vocal mix achieved by the small vocal group La Capella Ducale and the historical-instrument brass players of Musica Ficta is carefully controlled, and it approximates the effects of the diffuse rather than sharp-bordered masses of sound heard when such music is actually performed in the large, complex space of a Baroque church. Each sacred concerto has a slightly different set of forces, adding to the impression of gradually shifting sounds. Ultimately treatments of this kind may come down to individual preferences -- which is fine, since Scheidt apparently allowed for them. Booklet notes are in German, French, and English, but texts are in German and English only.

In your panoramas...
Glenn Gould, Extravaganza

How can I describe – let alone define – this truly one-of-a-kind pianist? As an alien, perhaps. An alien who whisks us away at supersonic speed before slowing down to land on an infinite world where there is time for everything. It is the acceptance and cultivation of his otherness (or his alienness?) that has made this unconventional pianist one of the greatest and most loved (and criticised) musicians ever.

Marc Ribot, the Anti-guitar Hero

For over thirty-five years, Marc Ribot’s name has been on the covers of albums by Tom Waits, Alain Bashung, Diana Krall, John Zorn, Robert Plant, Caetano Veloso and numerous other artists, and when he's not busy lending his unique guitar to others, the New Yorker takes pleasure, under his own name, in breaking down and re-building rock, jazz, funk, Cuban music and anything his fingers touch.

Nils Frahm, an Atypical Piano Master

Hailed by critics of classical music as well as amateurs of the electronic genre, Nils Frahm’s talent has brought harmony between the two worlds for the last ten years. Whether he plays on a church organ or a synthesiser fitted with effect pedals, the German pianist is always looking forward, and that’s what makes him so appealing.
