The Monteverdi Choir and English Baroque Soloists celebrate Christmas with a mixed programme of J.S. Bach’s sacred choral works. As we approach the 500th Anniversary of the Lutheran Church, these works transport listeners to 18th-century Leipzig for a traditional Christmas celebration. The programme moves from the intimacy of “Süßer Trost” to the vast celebration of joy that is Bach's Magnificat. The Bach at Christmas project is dedicated to the memory of philanthropist and patron of the Monteverdi choir, Sir Ralph Kohn. The concerts from which these recordings were taken took place at the Alte Oper, Frankfurt, in December of 2016.

The second longplayer by Wucan. With "Reap The Storm" Front woman Francis Tobolsky and their men stay true to the Wucan sound and have even refined and intensified it: powerful intelligent rock sprinkled with folkloristic elements. The band celebrates their brew from different styles and cites from many common genres - from psychedelic rock, blues and acid folk up to classic and heavy rock of the 1970's as well as from the insatiable krautrock and experimental phase of German bands during that time. With their debut "Sow The Wind" having been released in autumn 2015, Wucan has easily passed the magic threshold from an inside tip to an acclaimed newcomer. Two years, several tours and many festivals later, the band has established itself as a constant in the rock business…

The Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra and conductor Daniele Gatti join with the Netherlands Radio Choir and soloists Chen Reiss and Karen Cargill for a vibrant live recording of Mahler's Symphony No. 2 in C Minor "Resurrection”. The history of the world-famous orchestra is interlinked with that of Mahler's own, and the Concertgebouw musicians certainly appear to have an affinity for this music, offering up a rousing and intense interpretation of this well-known symphony with sparkling vocal contributions from Reiss and Cargill.

This new release by the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra conducted by Hannu Lintu is an all-Sibelius programme featuring internationally acclaimed mezzo-soprano Anne Sofie von Otter. The album includes two major tone poems by Jean Sibelius, Tapiola and En Saga, combined with a set of songs orchestrated by Aulis Sallinen (b. 1935) in 2015. Sibeliuss tone poem Tapiola, written shortly after the 7th Symphony, may be regarded as the culmination of a period that began with the Fifth Symphony, a period where Sibelius created music that grew organically out of tiny germs into huge processes. It was completed in 1926 and remained Sibeliuss last great orchestral work.

After a lengthy tenure, Germany’s Gothminister have returned with a new recording. Having been smitten with their last album and stageplay Utopia nearly half a decade ago, The Other Side seems to follow perfectly with the mixture of weighty industrial and melodic Goth rock that the band have been pursuing for several years now…

Hardly any other composer of his era was as deeply rooted in the German and European choral traditions as Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy. Strongly influenced by the art of Johann Sebastian Bach, which he had encountered in the Berlin Singakademie under his teacher Carl Friedrich Zelter, the young composer wrote a series of eight chorale cantatas, including Verleih uns Frieden gnädiglich (Give us Thy blessed peace, 1831) - a short prayer for choir and orchestra set to words by Martin Luther. Mendelssohn's five wide-ranging and large-scale psalm settings became even more famous, and three of them can be heard here.

Fernando Express ist eine deutsche Schlagerband aus Baden-Württemberg. Die Gruppe wurde 1969 unter dem Namen Skippies von dem Speditionskaufmann Josef Eisenhut (verheiratet, zwei Kinder), dem Industriekaufmann Hans Olbert und Klaus Lorenz als Trio gegründet. Die Band trat im regionalen Kreis bei verschiedenen Festen auf. In der Folgezeit wurde die Gruppe um einige Musiker erweitert. Im Jahr 1982 erfolgte die Umbenennung in Fernando Express. Ende der 1980er Jahre gab es weitere Umbesetzungen. Schließlich engagierte das Trio 1990 die Leadsängerin Birgit Langer (* 5. April 1968 in Weingarten (Baden)), die in der Rudi-Carrell-Show als Mandy-Winter-Double aufgetreten war. Seither tritt Fernando Express als Quartett auf und hatte zunächst im süddeutschen Raum zahlreiche Erfolge.

Is it too much to announce yet another CD world premiere for a singer with such a vast discography as Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau (1925-2012)? No, it truly is not. That is because the undoubtedly most important singer alongside Maria Callas and Enrico Caruso of the twentieth century (according to Die Welt newspaper) had originally forbidden a release of this live recording. The most likely reason is that this recording made on February 26, 1989 in the Deutsche Oper in Düsseldorf and featuring his fourth wife, soprano Julia Varady (born in 1941) included songs that the baritone, who was to retire from active performance in 1992, planned to record in the studio.

The title of this album comes from the first song Luther wrote. In this recording Camerata Trajectina highlights Lutheran melodies in the Low Countries in the 16th century. In this way the ensemble commemorates the 500th anniversary in 2017 (on October 31) of the day when Luther publicly posted his 95 Theses in Wittenberg, which sparked the Protestant Reformation.

The roles featured on this CD are, in more ways than one, truly great ones; the vocal and interpretational demands on the artist are of an equally high calibre. The fact, as J. M. Fischer writes in the booklet text, that the term 'heroic baritone' has established itself in connection with these roles is recognition of the highly technical challenges – and simultaneously an understatement. The parallels with Wagnerʼs 'heroic tenor roles' can be seen in the truly supreme vocal challenges, and yet the bass-baritone protagonistʼs role in each of these works also demands even greater control of the dramatic character and, therefore, a more complex musical approach. The enduring fascination of these demanding roles can also be sought in their 'tragic awareness'.

An original psych/ folk project directed by the esoteric Swiss writer Sergius Golowin. It is in the mood of Rolf Ulrich Kaiser’s « Cosmic couriers » series, including many musicians of the krautrock scene for psychedelic improvisations recorded in three epic pieces. Conceptually this album deals with India mysticism, ecstasy and undirectly with drugs experiences, put in music to create a unearthly, beautiful journey through the cosmos and the hidden side of the Humanity. It contains ravishing, odd, spiritual recitations in German taken from Sergius’ personal writings.

This live concert recording features sacred compositions by Telemann and Bach written about the same time for Hamburg. Among Telemann’s contacts, those with his godson and later successor Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach are especially significant. A great part of the church compositions brought together here, all of them connected with the liturgical performance of music at Hamburg’s five principal churches, number among the documents attesting to their relationship.
