Schutz: Psalmen & Friedensmusiken / Rademann
Dresdner Kammerchor, Hans-Christoph Rademann
This new release is a brilliant conclusion to the first Heinrich Schutz complete recording. With the "Psalms & Peace Music" Hans-Christoph Rademann and the Dresdner Kammerchor set the magnificent climax of this ten-year project. The works, most of which are almost unknown, unite particularly splendid polychoral pieces, which Schutz wrote between 1618 and 1648 for important political occasions or commemorative celebrations. Soloist and choir groups create a colorful sound experience in interplay with strings, trombones, cornets and viols. This is a truly worthy finale to this award-winning series. Hans-Christoph Rademann is one of the most sought after choral conductors and widely acknowledged specialists of choral sound in the world. His concerts and recordings are pioneering, and his interpretations have been highly acclaimed.
