After the 5CD-Release with sacred choral music by Georg Philipp Telemann (C7215), Capriccio continues now with most impressive Cantatas and Oratorios by Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach. It's already shown that the famoust of the Bach-Sons has nothing to hide compare to his Fathers Masterworks. Since three decades, Hermann Max has been a major con­trib­u­tor to the canon of his­tor­i­cal­ly informed performance practice and makes these Rarities alive again.

ZEMLINSKY

A FLORENTINE TRAGEDY Opera in one act op. 16 (1916)

Oscar Wilde’s A Florentine Tragedy was written in 1893, but remained a fragment when the author was arrested for ‘sodomy’. But the material was in the air, so to speak, and Alexander von Zemlinsky, who may have had Richard Strauss’ recourse to Wilde’s Salome in mind and hoped for a similar success with A Florentine Tragedy, finally converted the play into a one-act opera. Puccini had also been interested in the material, but the publisher Tito Ricordi advised him against it. Other potential takers also included Ferruccio Busoni who also found the ending too hackneyed. However, such alleged triviality did not deter his colleague Alexander von Zemlinsky, who celebrated success with his opera. Alban Berg admired the work so much that musical parallels to the Florentine Tragedy can be found in his Wozzeck, premiered eight years later.

Hermann Reutters compositional talents were already being recognised in 1923 when he became acquainted with musical modernity at the festivals in Baden-Baden and Donaueschingen, where he met Paul Hindemith. In 1956 he assumed the post of Rektor at the Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst in Stuttgart, which he retained until his retirement.
Reutter's early compositions reflect the stylistic influences of the romantic models of Anton Bruckner and Hans Pfitzner. However, the impressions made by Bartók, Stravinsky, and Hindemith  resulted in a change in Reutter's musical language. In the context of a dialogue with the music of  his own time, he learned to express his own ideas and develop his own individual style. The works of this recording, although stylistically and chronologically distant from one another, present an unmistakeable manifestation of a strong and deeply human musicality, which discovers an authentic and sincere voice beyond any stylistic or national borders.

DORA DELIYSKA THE B-A-C-H PROJECT

BACH · CHOPIN · SHOSTAKOVICH
Dora Deliyska, piano

C5335 PC: 21 845221053356

Based on a thorough musical analysis, I have tried to make a selection of pieces that will not only respond musically to one another, but also represent part of an overarching concept, the structure of B-A-C-H. The core of my concept is based on the idea of how musical compositions, written in different centuries with different compositional styles, can find a connection between one another, giving rise to very new and unique reflections. This way, the three composers (Bach, Chopin, Shostakovich) ‘communicate’ with one another, mutually influencing their artistic ideas. Dora Deliyska

"Lulli is given praise, Corelli great acclaim; Telemann alone is above all fame", wrote the music author Johann Mattheson in 1740. Mattheson's claim was quite accurate: the director of music in Hamburg had less need to fight for recognition than ever. His leading role in the musical life of northern and central Germany was undisputed. With this 5CD-Collection Capriccio presents some most important Sacred Music Masterpieces from his early age to the later period.  Telemann attempted to give each poem the music that "it could endure": each new "musical poetry" consequently stimulated an attempt at an artistically suitable musical realisation.
