Notes & Reviews:

This, the second release of the highly anticipated Retrospect Ensemble series, features the Easter Oratorio, one of Bach’s best-known oratorios and a monumental work, as well as the Ascension Oratorio. Originally released in 2011 ‘J.S. Bach: Easter and Ascension Oratorios’ has been re-issued as part of Linn’s ECHO series which offers a second chance to enjoy the best of the label’s award-winning catalogue. Retrospect Ensemble employs large-scale forces for this recording including four-part choir and orchestra (including timpani), and is joined by Carolyn Sampson (soprano), Iestyn Davies (countertenor), James Gilchrist (tenor) and Peter Harvey (bass). This dynamic recording highlights the skill and brilliance of Bach's writing through the inspired story telling of its star soloists and the passion of the Ensemble. Named a Finalist in the ‘Baroque Vocal’ category at the 2011 Gramophone Awards, the recording received many five star reviews in addition to being named The Sunday Times’ ‘Classical Record of the Week’. Founded by Matthew Halls, Retrospect Ensemble takes its musicians and audiences on an exciting journey, exploring the repertoire of four centuries and embracing the practices, styles and aesthetics of former ages with renewed vigour and a fresh approach. Retrospect has appeared at major UK festivals including the Edinburgh International Festival and Norfolk and Norwich Festival and performed at Wigmore Hall and Cadogan Hall, London. Matthew Halls, Artistic Director of the Oregon Bach Festival, has established himself as one of today’s leading young conductors, working with Toronto Symphony, Washington, D.C.’s National Symphony, Cleveland Orchestra, Colorado Symphony Orchestra, Houston Symphony Orchestra, Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, Ottawa’s National Arts Centre Orchestra, and the Seattle Symphony Orchestra.
