Die Letzen Dinge
4.2 out of 5 stars with 37 reviews
The The Last Judgment by Louis Spohr is one of the most important oratorios of the early 19th c. Accompanied recitatives, short contrapuntal solos and above all great choruses characterize the musical structure. Contrary to other apocalyptic compositions, Spohr focuses on a positive, comforting fundamental attitude of joyful anticipation, making manifest the praise of God and the portrayal of omnipotence, kindness and righteousness. Frieder Bernius and the Stuttgart Chamber Choir together with t

Book with Seven Seals
4.2 out of 5 stars with 7 reviews
The present CD is the recorded document of a special performance. When Simone Young lay down her baton on 15 June 2015 after the performance of Franz Schmidts The Book with Seven Seals, it was the 45th programme in the 90th Philharmonic concert that she had conducted within the ten years of her term as Hamburg Artistic Director (August 2005 to July 2015). Thus the Hamburg State Philharmonic Orchestra did not require much persuading to issue this rarely performed work as a CD on the OehmsClassics
The Best of Millennium of Music, Vol.2: Alleluia, This Sweete Songe
4.7 out of 5 stars with 57 reviews
The syndicated radio program Millennium of Music and its host Robert Aubry Davis have done a great deal to introduce American audiences to the enormously varied repertory referred to as early music. Now Davis and his colleagues are releasing a series of compilation discs showcasing the tremendous range and beauty of ''the 1,000 years before the birth of Bach.'' The well-chosen selections on volume 2 of the series (the obligatory Christmas collection) run from 12th-century chant to two excerpts f

Thank you for viewing my ad, and choosing my store This isn't an oratorio in the Handelian sense, but a series of cantatas for various days from Christmas to Epiphany. Bach's music is loaded with treats: an echo aria for soprano and oboe; a ''pastoral'' sinfonia; bravura arias for tenor with flute and bass with trumpet; a giddy sopran

Theodora was Handel's next-to-last oratorio, and though it was a failure at its premiere, Handel preferred it above all his others. It tells of the martyrdom of the Christian Theodora (soprano) and her beloved Didymus (countertenor) at the hands of the Romans, with the villainous Valens (bass) in charge. Septimius (tenor) is a sympathetic Roman soldier and Irene (soprano) is Theodora's pious friend. This new recording presents the 3-hour work complete and is simply beautiful: Sophie Daneman sing

Well, we'll need a new straw man: this performance is WONDERFUL. Jon Vickers and

Susan Graham ~ Berlioz - Les nuits d'été
4.9 out of 5 stars with 24 reviews
1997,11 songs On casual listen, Graham can seem like yet another pretty voice. And it is extremely pretty. But there's an intelligence and learnedness that can only make her more interesting as time goes on. As is, her performances are slightly undercooked, though there are some moments during Les Nuits d'été as passionate and committed as one could want. The arias added to fill out the disc aren't heard in optimal performances, but show what riches lie in Berlioz's neglected operatic output,
Lorraine Hunt Lieberson - Handel Arias

4.4 out of 5 stars with 60 reviews
Grammy Nominee! If you think you've heard Handel's ''Ombra mai fu'' (known as his ''Largo'') so often, and in so many different arrangements, and sung by so many different voices, that you can no longer be moved or surprised by it, think again. This CD of Handel arias, mostly from his Theodora or the cantata La Lucrezia, ends with ''Ombra mai fu,'' and as sung by Lorraine Hunt Lieberson, it is so tender, so beautiful, so impeccably shaded, that you'll think you're hearing it for the first time.

Carols for a Victorian Christmas
4.7 out of 5 stars with 37 reviews
Victorian Carols - Christmas Songs and Music from Victorian England. The Victorians almost re-invented Christmas trees and carol singing after decades of neglect of our major festival. Queen Victoria and Prince Albert led the changing style of Christmas as it became a real family occasion for the first time, with presents around the tree and carol singing in the home and on the street. This recording assembles a variety of Victorian Christmas music from the sounds of street musicians to drawing
Stravinsky: Oedipus Rex ~ Salonen
4.2 out of 5 stars with 50 reviews
Oedipus Rex is one of the most remarkable and successful of Stravinsky's ''neoclassical'' pieces. With text set in Latin, a narrator explains what is about to happen, and invites the audience to observe the action objectively, without becoming emotionally involved. The result is music which has the same monumentality and ''spatial'' quality as a sculpture garden. Esa-Pekka Salonen has rapidly gained a reputation as one of our finest Stravinsky conductors. Together with his stellar lineup of solo
