Conductor Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Associate Conductor of The Sixteen, Eamonn Dougan, makes his full conducting debut on CORO in the first of an exciting new series exploring some of Poland's greatest choral composers. Bartlomiej P?ekiel was one of the most eminent Polish composers of choral music of the 17th century. He served at the court in Warsaw from around 1633, and became Kapellmeister from 1645 - 1655 - the first non-Italian to hold the post! Just 29 of his compositions survive today, and on this new album CORO presents 10 of his works for choir and orchestra.

The Observer, 26th May 2013
The sound world, very loosely, brings to mind Monteverdi. The exciting dissonances and strange harmonic colours set Pekiel in a category of his own.

The Times, 1st June 2013
The first native to break the Italian monopoly on top musical positions in 17th-century Poland, Pekiel wrote attractive (and harmonically daring) music in the style of Monteverdi and Buxtehude.

Sunday Times, 16th June 2013
The richness and sheer ambition of the latter pieces, such as the Missa Concertata La Lombardesca, testify to a talent worthy of standing alongside Monteverdi and Cavalli.

BBC Music Magazine, September 2013
The choral sound is well-focused in the men-only Ave Maria and the mini-duets for sopranos (Charlotte Mobbs and Alice Gribbin) are stylish. Apart from the edgy haute-conte (high tenor) solos in the Carissimi-influenced rhetoric of Audite mortals, it's a delightful performance.

International Record Review, September 2013
The Sixteen, here numbering 17 singers plus a 13-member instrumental ensemble, turn in polished performances, clearly enjoying the many opportunities for the solo work with which Pekiel provides them.

Gramophone Magazine, September 2013
This craftsman's masterful music is presented here with an assured charisma by the mighty Sixteen...[Dougan] draws typically golden performances from his vocalists and mixed instrumental ensemble...Sit back and relish this treasure-trove which has clearly been prepared with passion.

American Record Guide, November/December 2013
I have found the earlier recordings generally satisfactory and O'Reilly's really pleasing. Both the singing and the playing have more assertiveness and strength than any of the earlier recordings. This program advances Pekiel's multi-faceted musical personality more powerfully than ever before and is strongly recommended as an introduction to him.
