About the album

Volume 17 of the Buxtehude Opera Omnia series.

Dieterich Buxtehude’s vocal compositions represent all major genres that were current in Lutheran church music of the later 17th century. They included in particular chorale settings, concertos on biblical texts, arias on contemporary sacred poetry, dialogues, and composite forms such as concertoaria cantatas. Preeminent among them were various kinds of settings based on traditional songs from the church hymnal, i.e., “chorales” in Lutheran terminology.

This Volume includes chorale settings ("All solch dein Güt' wir preisen", "Herzlich tut mich verlangen"), arias like "An filius non est Dei, fons gratiae salus mei", which constitue an important and characteristic part of his sacred music, Ciacconas ("Laudate, pueri, Dominum", "Quemadmodum desiderat cervus") Concertos, which were the most prominent type of vocal-instrumental church music in the 17th century, and Cantata.
Emotionele vocale en instrumentale muziek van Buxtehude

Deel XVII van de Opera Omnia serie is het 7e album met vocale werken van Dieterich (Dietrich, Diderich) Buxtehude. Ook instrumentaal valt er veel te genieten, zoals bij de mooie klanken van de sonates als inleiding. Ton Koopman en het Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra & Choir zorgen weer voor een wonderschone uitvoering, waarin de rijke en kleurrijke muziek van Buxtehude prachtig tot uiting komt. Vooral het Klaaglied Mit Fried und Freud, springt eruit, aangrijpend gezongen door Maarten Engeltjes. Buxtehude schreef dit Klaaglied als treurmuziek voor de begrafenis van zijn vader. "Quite simply, a must hear.", BBC Music Magazine, februari 2014.

Buxtehude stond in zijn tijd, de late 17e eeuw, bekend om zijn grootschalige oratoria, die hij componeerde voor zijn Abendmusiken. De concerten die hij in de wintermaanden organiseerde voor de rijke kooplieden van de stad. Deze oratoria zijn helaas niet bewaard gebleven. Dat gold wel voor zijn andere vocale werk.

Buxtehude was een Deens-Duitse organist en een door velen bewonderde componist uit de barokperiode. Hij componeerde vocale en instrumentale muziek. Het grootste deel van zijn oeuvre bestaat uit divers vocaal werk, zoals geestelijke concerten, aria's, koralen, cantates en canons, weelderige en rijke muziek. Zijn orgelwerken omvatten een aanzienlijk deel van het standaard orgelrepertoire van onze hedendaagse kerkdiensten. Buxtehude wordt beschouwd als de belangrijkste Duitse componist in de periode tussen Heinrich Schütz en Bach. Zijn stijl heeft veel componisten sterk beïnvloed. Hij was één van de grote voorbeelden van Johann Sebastian Bach. Het verhaal gaat dat Bach, toen 20 jaar, in 1705 helemaal naar Lübeck liep - 400 km - om Dieterich Buxtehude daar in de Marienkirche te horen spelen.

Wellicht dat die anekdote Ton Koopman inspireerde tot zijn project Opera Omnia om het gehele bewaard gebleven oeuvre van Buxtehude uit te voeren en op te nemen. Er was hem veel aan gelegen Buxtehude als het brein achter de vocale muziek van Bach te erkennen. Koopman is een van de meest vooraanstaande uitvoerders van oude muziek en voorzittter van het Internationale Buxtehude Gesellschaft.
Arien, Choräle und Geistliche Konzerte - Volume 7 in der Buxtehude-Gesamtaufnahme mit Ton Koopman.

Ton Koopman setzt seine herausragende Edition sämtlicher Werke von Dietrich Buxtehude mit einer weiteren Doppel-CD fort. Unterstützung erfährt er nich nur durch das einmalige Amsterdam Baroque Orchester sondern auch durch die erstklassige Sängerriege.

Biber. The recording of both of these works won the Cannes Classical Award for the best performance of 17th/18th century choral music. For its rare combination of textural clarity and interpretative flexibility, the Amsterdam Baroque Choir is considered among today’s most outstanding choirs. In 1994 Ton Koopman and the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra & Choir embarked upon the most ambitious recording project of the last decades: the integral recording of Bach’s secular and sacred cantatas. For this extraordinary project Koopman and his ensemble received the Deutsche Schallplatten-Preis Echo Klassik. Next to the CD recordings three books have been edited and published by Ton Koopman and the musicologist Christoph Wolff and a series of six documentaries was produced and broadcasted by various TV stations.
Alongside Bach’s music the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra & Choir has recorded all major baroque and classical works. Major recognitions include the Gramophone Award, Diapason d'Or, 10-Repertoire, Stern des Monats-Fono Forum, the Prix Hector Berlioz and two Edison Awards. In 2008 the ensemble and Ton Koopman have been honoured with the prestigious BBC Award. Since March 2003 “Antoine Marchand”, a new sub-label of Challenge Classics, took over the release of Koopman’s new recordings and among many others has published 22 CD boxes of the Bach Cantatas, a new recording of the St. Matthew Passion (on CD and DVD) and St. Markus Passion of J.S. Bach (DVD), live recorded in Milan, as well as the first seven volumes of the Buxtehude Opera-Omnia Edition. Ton Koopman and the ABO & ABC are regular guests at the major concert halls of Europe, the USA and Japan. In the 2008/09 season they will tour extensively in Europe (Amsterdam, Paris, Madrid, Vienna, Milan, Cologne, Dresden, Düsseldorf etc) and in Far East with concerts in Hong Kong, Seoul and Tokyo.

Composer(s)

Dieterich Buxtehude

Among the general public, Dieterich Buxtehude is mostly known due to the admiration Johann Sebastian Bach had for his organ and composing skills, for which Bach traveled to the North German city of Lübeck to stay with him for four months, no less. This says quite something about the quality of Buxtehude's performance, but even more so about the influence it had on Bach and all composers after him. Yet, nowadays Buxtehude's music does not need Bach to survive, as a matter of fact it is extraordinarily beautiful just by itself!

Yet, nowadays Buxtehude's music does not need Bach to survive, as a matter of fact it is extraordinarily beautiful just by itself! Buxtehude was originally Danish, but he spent most of him life in Lübeck. His so-called 'Abendmusik', which was a series of evening concerts outside of the liturgy, grew famous. In the works he wrote for these occasions, his enormous fantasy and creative freedom truly shows. As an organ player, Buxtehude was widely famous. If you would listen to his Organ Preludes, you would quickly know why. Buxtehude manages to combine an unprecedented virtuosity with a large variety of styles and techniques. No wonder Bach traveled all that way to see him!

Quite simply, a must-hear.
BBC Music Magazine, 01-2-2014

(...) the performances (...) clearly made with love (...)
Gramophone, 01-1-2014

These two discs mix the well-known with the obscure, and the small-scale with the grandiose in glorious performances that serve only to remind us what a great composer Buxtehude was, no matter to which medium he has turned his hand.
Early Music Review, 01-12-2013

"In the meantime, enjoy this latest episode that again excels in instrumental and vocal splendor on the basis of coherence, balance, diction, phrasing, rhythmic foundation, fantastic panorama that unfolds through a phenomenal insight into what was there and what was to come"
