Descrizione prodotto


Was auf den ersten Blick vielleicht etwas gewagt anmutet, nämlich die Musik des Renaissance-Komponisten Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina unmittelbar mit derjenigen des zeitgenössischen estnischen Komponisten Arvo Pärt zu koppeln, macht bei näherer Betrachtung tatsächlich sogar viel Sinn, denn für beide Komponisten ist das vertonte, zu verkündende Wort Gottes zunächst einmal wichtiger als die Musik, die stets Dienerin des Wortes sein soll. Für beide standen bzw. stehen zudem geistliche Werke im Mittelpunkt ihres Schaffens. Der Nederlands Kamerkoor unter Risto Joost wagte für GLOBE das Experiment, das man in seinem klingenden Ergebnis nur als ausgesprochen geglückt bezeichnen kann.


Many music-lovers know the story of how Palestrina saved polyphony from extinction at the hands of the Council of Trent. It's a nice story, even if it is untrue. The Council was concerned that complex counterpoint made it extremely difficult to follow the religious texts, which the delegates understandably considered to be of paramount importance in church music. It was also unhappy about the centuries-old practice of weaving the tunes of secular songs, sometimes downright profane, into the Mass music, and the florid, self-aggrandising ornamentation employed by many singers. Palestrina's Missa Papae Marcelli showed that clarity and beauty could successfully co-exist even in a contrapuntal context, but it is no longer believed this work directly modified the Council's attitude. This CD presents the Mass twice: the last five tracks take us straight through, but before that the sections of the Ordinary of the Mass are interspersed with four compositions by Pärt, using texts from the Gospels. If any composer can be credited with perfectly melding celestially radiant beauty and almost ascetic simplicity, it is Pärt. It's not difficult to tell the two composers apart stylistically, but their similar spirit, sense of reverence and pristine vision make them perfect musical partners. Made in Amsterdam's Waalse Kerk, this recording gives an excellent impression of space and airiness, and does full justice to the beautiful performance of the choir. - Barry Witherden --BBC Music Magazine
