Product Description

CD Description

Antonio Rosetti, who was almost always mentioned in the same breath as Mozart and Haydn by his contemporaries, composed over 40 symphonies, about six dozen solo concertos and chamber music and a considerable number of sacred vocal works. Ranked amongst his greatest achievements in the latter genre are the large-scale passion oratorio ''Jesus in Gethsemane'' and the "Hallelujah" cantata. Both show the virtuoso mastery of a whole array of musical techniques. Thanks to their melodic ingenuity, sophisticated harmony, distinctive sense of proportion and the, accomplished manipulation of orchestral tones, both of these late works are counted among Rosetti's most meaningful creations. There is no better conductor for this disc of Rosetti masterpieces than Johannes Moesus who is president of the International Rosetti Society.

The music of Anton Rosetti, an almost exact contemporary of Mozart, has seen something of a revival on disc over the past decade or so; recordings so far have concentrated primarily on his orchestral output so this CPO release containing two large scale works somewhere between cantata and oratorio provides a very welcome opportunity to hear some of his vocal music. And it doesn't disappoint - many of the stylistic fingerprints that were so notable in Concerto Köln's survey of his symphonies* are to be found here also: imaginative scoring, harmonic resourcefulness and a gift for appealing and memorable melodic lines.

Both works are products of the 'Empfindsamkeit' movement, eschewing a dramatic approach in favour of a more contemplative one, in which the music attempts to evoke an emotional response in the listener appropriate to the content of the text; the opening chorus of 'Jesus in Gethsemane' provides a good example of how Rosetti achieves that, particularly in his imaginative and atmospheric scoring - the latter a feature throughout both cantatas.
