Super Jewel Case (SACD)
Framed by Bachs festive New Years Day Cantata and his double-choral motet on Psalm 98, this recording by the instrumentally and vocally multifaceted Salzburg ensemble presents works by Buxtehude, Telemann, and Handel. As a special treat two previously undiscovered solutions to Mozarts Puzzle Canon on the same text is also included. Along with this premiere, two other recording firsts enrich this meticulously produced Super Audio CD. Telemanns cantata has never been released in recorded form before. Gordon Safari, the ensembles founder and leader, has completed the Cantata BWV 190, a work transmitted in fragmentary form. This versatile conductor is now presenting this festive work for the first time on Super Audio CD. Handel designed his English version of Psalm 98 just as festively, though with clearly more modest means. What this well-versed stage composer does with the few instruments that the patron who commissioned the work could accommodate once again demonstrates the masterful instrumental artistry of this German resident of England. As we gather from Buxtehudes Latin psalm setting, both Handel and Bach learned from him. This virtuosic piece for three voices seems to have been tailor-made for the throats of the BachWerkVokal. The remarkable room impression of this three-dimensional recording shines with Baroque splendour even in the secular setting of the home and lends Bachs double-choral motets the radiance of a live performance.
