Product description

Product Description

Period-instrument pioneer Andrew Parrott conducts his Taverner Consort and Players and a superb vocal roster of baroque specialists, in the first recording of his own reconstruction of J. S. Bach's Trauer-Musik: Music to mourn Prince Leopold. Andrew Parrott is a master of musicological detective work known for his adventurous and uncompromising scholarship. He is also internationally known for his pioneering historically informed performances and recordings of pre-classical repertory. This new release combines the best of both, resulting in the first full reconstruction and recording of the funeral music for J. S. Bach's patron, Prince Leopold of Cöthen. Bach's years in Cöthen were musically fertile and Prince Leopold was a knowledgeable and committed supporter of music and the arts, so it's ironic that much of Bach's output during those years has been lost or even destroyed. The score for Trauer-Musik, written in 1728 on the occasion of the Prince's sudden death at the age of 34, has almost completely disappeared, yet through the discovery of numerous clues in other works and writings, Parrott has been able to recontruct what was clearly a heart-felt homage. Parrott conducts the renowned Taverner Consort and Players, the organisation he founded in 1973, and a superb roster of baroque vocal soloists. A unique document and superb performance make this a recording for classical music aficionados and lovers of Bach's music alike. Personnel: Andrew Parrott (conductor), Emily Van Evera (soprano), Clare Wilkinson (mezzo), Charles Daniels (tenor), Tom Meglioranza (baritone) Critical acclaim for Andrew Parrott and the Taverner Consort and Players: "Parrott, who has had broad experience working with substantial choruses, knew precisely what to do, drawing a rich, full-bodied sound from the singers. His allocation of vocal solos to the choristers was clearly a matter of spreading the wealth rather than submitting to any academic constraint." - The New York Times

Review

(4 stars) Bach would surely have approved...it's beautifully performed.
-- BBC Music Magazine, (George Pratt), December 2011

(4 stars) Clearly the work of a Bach genius...it's wonderful, famous music, and it's an emotive, crisply beautiful performance. -- Classic FM Magazine, (Charlotte Gardner), December 2011

(4 stars) The blend of familiar music and unfamiliar poetry is fascinating. -- The Independent On Sunday, (Anna Picard), October 9, 2011

A fascinating piece of musical archaeology by Parrott and his Taverner Consort and Players.
-- The Observer, (Fiona Maddocks), December 18, 2011

Exceptional recorded sound from Avie...a recording of Bach which stands up among the finest...these are outstanding performances. -- International Record Review, (Marc Rochester), January 2012

Parrott's critical uncovering of new meaning and intention is always thought-provoking and especially so in this compelling curiosity. -- Gramophone, (Jonathan Freeman-Attwood), December 2011

Places the Taverners firmly back where they belong, at the vanguard of stimulating research-driven concepts interpreted with enthralling musicality. -- Gramophone (Critic's Choice), (David Vickers), December 2011
