Product description

Product Description

Following their 11-disc cycle of Mozarts piano concertos recorded with Ronald Brautigam, Die KölnerAkademieand Michael Alexander Willensin 2017 released a disc with two of Mozarts best-loved serenades: the PosthornSerenadeand EinekleineNachtmusik. The result was warmly received, for instance in the French magazine Classicawhere it was described as a truly attractive disc to chase away the gloom and on Die KölnerAkademie demonstrate once again that they are amongst the best groups in the world of period performance. Joined by the tenor John Heuzenroederand the male voices of the KölnerAkademieChoir, the team has now recorded the music that Mozart wrote for performance at Masonic gatherings. Mozart was himself a Mason during the last seven years of his life, and composed a number of songs and cantatas for various occasions. Best-known is probably the Masonic Funeral Music, K 477, heard here in a version Meistermusik devised by the Mozart scholar Philippe Autexierin an attempt to reconstruct the original performance of the piece. Also included are the four orchestral interludes to the play Thamos, Königin Ägypten, fine examples of Mozarts music in the Sturm und Drang tradition. Thamoswas written by the poet and Mason Tobias von Gebler, and parallels have frequently been drawn between it and the more overtly Masonic Magic Flute.


The songs especially find their verse structures echoed in The Magic Flute- the Masonic work par excellence. Recommended with a handshake. --Gramophone, June'18
