Die Schöpfung by Joseph Haydn( )

38 editions published between 1986 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 554 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Haydn gave birth to a new type of oratorio that reflected perfectly the spirit of his time. With German texts, direct expression of feelings and many grand choruses, it stood for the transition from the aristocracy to a bourgeois society, in which music-making in a group was seen as an expression of civil pride. Extremely popular with amateur choirs, performances with a large ensemble became the rule until well into the 20th century. And the 1960 Electrola recording represents this tradition, with a top-class trio of soloists consisting of the great Elisabeth Grummer, outstanding tenor Josef Traxel and Gottlob Frick, "the blackest of all bass singers"

Musik als Klangrede : Wege zu einem neuen Musikverständnis : Essays und Vorträge by Nikolaus Harnoncourt( Book )

80 editions published between 1982 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 416 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wenn Nikolaus Harnoncourt seine Sammlung von Aufsätzen, Vorträgen und Vorlesungen "Musik als Klangrede" nennt, bekennt er sich damit zur Wiedergewinnung beredten Musizierens, für das er selbst mit seinem Ensemble "Concentus musicus" seit 1953 wegbereitend gewirkt hat. Harnoncourt geht mit dem gegenwärtigen Musikleben streng ins Gericht: Es erscheint ihm als ein aufwendiges Ornament, um über die kulturelle Leere des Lebens hinwegzutäuschen. Dem stellt er die Rückbesinnung auf ein verstehendes Hören entgegen, mit dem Interpreten und Hörer gemeinsam versuchen, sich die vielen Sprachen und Stile der Musik vergangener Jahrhunderte wieder zugänglich zu machen. Doch er verordnet nicht etwa den nostalgischen Rückblick auf "originales" Barockspiel mit "historischen" Instrumenten: Hier ist Harnoncourt oft missverstanden worden. Vielmehr setzt er sich mit der Alten Musik, ihrer Spielweise und ihren Instrumenten auseinander, um Impulse für die heutige Musikpraxis zu gewinnen. Nikolaus Harnoncourt erläutert in diesem Buch die Grundprinzipien seiner musikalischen Praxis, die ihn in der gesamten Musikwelt berühmt gemacht haben. Dabei geht es ihm nicht um die museale Interpretation Alter Musik, sondern um eine moderne Interpretation der Meisterwerke der Vergangenheit, deren Impulse unsere Hörgewohnheiten auf neue Fundamente stellen.
