Notes & Reviews:
Telemann made use of all aspects of tone painting when he composed the music to the poetic text Der Tag des Gerichts in 1761. The graphic descriptions of nature in Christian Wilhelm Alers' libretto were ideal for Telemann's colorful compositional style. The results were four musical paintings which the Bach Consort Leipzig, with soloists Siri Karoline Thornhill, Susanne Krumbiegel, Tobias Hunger and Gotthold Schwarz, and the exceptional instrumentalists retrace on this CD.

This is the fourth recording of this oratoriocantata, The Day of Judgement. First presented in 1762, it is the last of Telemann's works on this scale. It sets a poem by one Christian Wilhelm Alers, a young theology student at the time. Its rhymed text was meant for musical setting. This is a recording meant for international circulation.
Recording information: Schlosskirche Torgau (11/21/2009-11/23/2009).
