Ein deutsches Requiem : op. 45 by Johannes Brahms( )

Das Deutsche Requiem von Brahms gehört in der Musikgeschichte zu den bekanntesten und umfangreichsten Requiem-Kompositionen. Die Texte sind der Luther-Bibel entnommen und setzen den Schwerpunkt auf den Trost der Lebenden für ihren Verlust und die Hoffnung auf Auferstehung. Marin Alsop gehört inzwischen nicht nur zu den bekanntesten NAXOS-Dirigentinnen sondern hat auch weltweit einen hervorragenden Ruf als Meisterin ihres Fachs. Diese Aufnahme gibt eindrucksvoll die heraus-ragende Zusammenarbeit Alsops mit dem Leipziger MDR Rundfunkchor- und Orchester wieder. Sopranistin Anna Lucia Richter ist Preisträgerin zahlreicher Wettbewerbe und hatte zuletzt großen Erfolg in Aufttritten u.a. mit dem Gürzenich Orchester Köln, dem WDR Rundfunkorchester, und dem HR Frankfurt. "Die Dirigentin, die heute das Baltimore Symphony Orchestra leitet, gab ihr Europa-Debüt 1993 beim Schleswig-Holstein-Festival. Seitdem ist sie hier immer wieder gern unterwegs, vorrangig mit den Werken zeitgenössischer amerikanischer und deutscher Komponisten. Dass ausgerechnet Johannes Brahms auf dem Programm des "Zauber der Musik" steht kommt nicht von ungefähr. Marin Alsop arbeitet gerade an einer Brahms Gesamteinspielung, die demnächst erscheinen wird. Für "Ein deutsches Requiem" hat sie sich für die Ensembles des MDR entschieden" (mdr.de)

St Matthew Passion : BWV. 244 by Johann Sebastian Bach( Recording )

4 editions published in 1989 in 3 languages and held by 430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although Bach wrote four (or five) settings of the Passions only two have survived; the St. Matthew Passion (Matthäus-Passion) and the St John Passion. The St. Matthew Passion was probably first performed on Good Friday (11 April) 1727 in the Thomaskirche in Leipzig, where Bach was the Kantor of the School and Directoris Chori musici of Leipzig. He revised it by 1736, performing it again on 30 March 1736, this time including two organs in the instrumentation. He further revised and performed it again on 24 March 1742. Considered to be one of the greatest pieces of sacred music in Western music, it has been recorded many times, and this version, recorded in July 1964 has remained one of the reference recordings of the work, not least for the inclusion of Fritz Wunderlich as performer of the tenor arias, as well as the rest of the supreme vocal cast which includes Pears, Prey, Ameling and Krause. Booklet notes are by the producer of this recording, the great Ray Minshull, and full texts, together with a new English translation are included
