Bach, J.S.: Easter Oratorio / Gottes Zeit ist die allerbeste Zeit, "Actus tragicus" (Monteverdi Choir, English Baroque Soloists, Gardiner)


John Eliot Gardiner, the Monteverdi Choir and English Baroque Soloists bring thier authoritative period-performance interpretation to J.S. Bach's Easter Oratorio BWV 249, a less-performed choral work. Originally composed as a simple cantata, the Easter Oratorio was later revised into a more polished piece, with a meditative emphasis and underlying narrative flavour. The work is paired with Bach's Actus tragicus BWV 106.
Chandos: CHAN9862
Gade: Symphonies, Vol. 1


Fans of Schumann and Mendelssohn would do well to become acquainted with the music of Danish composer Neils Gade, whose dramatic symphonies are distinctive and melodic, with intriguing Nordic elements. Two of his symphonies are beautifully recorded here, plus the welcome addition of his Scottish Overture.
Naxos: 8.572222
Fuchs, R.: Serenades Nos. 1 and 2 / Andante grazioso and Capriccio (Cologne Chamber Orchestra, C. Ludwig)


Robert Fuchs all but vanished from public consciousness after his death in 1927, yet here is a composer whom Brahms held in the highest esteem, and whose pupils included Mahler and Sibelius. This selection of music for string orchestra, gives us an opportunity to reassess a neglected and influential figure of Austrian Romanticism.
