Product description

Product Description

The Abendmusiken were a legendary concert series organised by Buxtehude in Lübeck. Even Johann Sebastian Bach travelled a long way to attend these concerts of sacred and instrumental music and met the master Dietrich Buxtehude, the most famous organist in Europe. To mark the 500th anniversary of the Lutheran Reformation, Vox Luminis and the Ensemble Masques have come together to perform a programme of cantatas (Gott hilf mir, denn das Wasser geht mir bis an die Seele, BuxWV 34 | Befiehl dem Engel, dass er komm, BuxWV 10 | Jesu, meine Freude, BuxWV 60 | Herzlich lieb hab ich dich, o Herr, BuxWV 41) and instrumental pieces (Sonatas BuxWV 255 and 261). The recording assembles leading specialists of this repertory, with the expert voices of Vox Luminis combining with the vitality of the instrumentalists of Ensemble Masques.

Review

Vox Luminis's BBC Music Magazine Award-winning disc commemorating the quincentenary of the Lutheran Reformation contained one eyebrowraising lacuna: there was nothing by Buxtehude. Perhaps the mystery is explained by this alluring postscript devoted exclusively to the music of an organist JS Bach arguably admired above all others. He esteemed him as a composer too, and must have devoured the AdventAbendmusiken concerts that made the Marienkirche the toast of musical Lubeck. Lionel Meunier's crack consort teams up with the equally estimable Ensemble Masques to explore some of the music that might have been performed during those December divertissements. And they mix cantatas and trio sonatas with ajudicious flair that, for instance, contrasts the gentle balm of J esu, meine Freude, with an exquisitely characterised account of the perky B flat Trio Sonata from Op.1, or balances Cantata BuxWV 41 (whose consoling final section is perfectly shaped so that its elements coalesce delectably), with a dark-hued sonata for gamba and violone. The waters that shimmer and lap around the opening Sonata of Gott InY mi r, and the gentle palpitations that launch the ensuing aria are so naturally, easefully achieved, that rival versions such as those by Ton Koopman and Roland Wilson sound almost prosaic by comparison. Nothing is over-stated or under-nurtured; and Meunier always finds a deeply human dimension to Buxtehude's piety that taps into the biirgerlich bonhomie of the sonatas. Rich, lively and truthful, the recorded sound consummates a seductively considered disc that pretty much never puts a foot wrong.RECORDING *****/PERFORMANCE ***** --BBC Music Magazine
