Notes & Reviews:
After the prize-winning first recording of Franz Schubert's opera Sakontala, Frieder Bernius has now turned to his oratorio Lazarus (D 689). Although it only survives as a fragment, Lazarus is often regarded as a forerunner of Wagner's Parsifal because of its recitative-arioso form, and still retains its place in the repertoire. For this live recording from the Bachfest Leipzig 2013, Bernius was joined by a distinguished line-up of soloists, the Kammerchor Stuttgart and the Hofkapelle Stuttgart.
American Record Guide, November/December 2014
The performance, taken from a concert at the 2013 Leipzig Bach Festival, is fine in every way. All the soloists are good. Bernius paces the work very well. The performance is first rate, and the notes include the text.
Recording information: Nikolaikirche Leipzig (06/18/2013).
