Notes & Reviews:

Composer Johann Adolf Hasse (1699 - 1783) was the uncontested idol of the late baroque era. Although today he is known primarily as an opera composer, he left behind numerous sacred works. At last, the sacred music he composed for the court of Dresden is being made accessible in recorded form. The Dresdener Kammerchor and the Dresdner Barockorchester, under the direction of Hans-Christoph Rademann have devoted this album to the recording of Hasse's Requiem in C major and the Miserere in C minor.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Ev. St. Marienkirche, Marienberg (09/04/2010-09/06/2010).



Reviews

A royal send-off
For whatever reason, I’m aware of fewer Requiem Masses from the Baroque than from any other period. Not only did Johan Adolf Hasse write two of them—for titled patrons who died within months of each other--both are in major keys! The opening section’s stately and measured pace at once evokes the image of a casket being ceremoniously brought into the church, and it is repeated exactly at the end. (In between are some lovely, and not particularly gloomy, movements.) No fewer than six soloists are deployed in various combinations, and two sections are sung only by the men of the chorus. The companion piece on the disc is a setting of one of the penitential psalms, though again a somber beginning gives way to more hopeful music. Except for one of the altos (and I can’t tell which one because the booklet is not clear about who sings what), I liked the young team of soloists, and the orchestra and choir are fine. The director’s introductory essay says the recording is live, but there’s no applause or any other distracting sounds. Notes and texts in English.
