Joy & Gladness in Abundance: Christmas Music from the Marktkirche Hannover - works of Telemann, Bach, Franck, Vivaldi, Olssen, Altenburg, Monteverdi & Eyck / Ulfert Smidt, organ; Ute Engelke, soprano; Elisabeth Schwanda, recorder

Notes & Reviews:

Music by Telemann, Bach, Franck, Vivaldi, Olssen, Altenburg, Monteverdi and Eyck Intricate Music in compelling arrangements for soprano, recorder, and organ. Three musicians from Hanover – one project: organist Ulfert Smidt, recorder player Elisabeth Schwanda, and soprano Ute Engelke explore the fascination of Advent and Christmas in an unusual, but all the more delightful musical setting on their CD ‘Joy and Gladness in Abundance’. They have arranged a number of works, mainly of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, for soprano, recorder, and organ, generating unheard-of, exceptionally stunning musical layers of nuance. The three musicians demonstrate all possible combinations of joint music-making full of inspiration and nuance, exemplifying in highly virtuosic and successful manner the essence of chamber music-making during Advent and Christmas: the expression of our joyful anticipation of redemption through the saviour’s coming into the world.
