Johann Rosenmüller (1617-1684): In Exile / Jesse Blumberg, ACRONYM

Conductor Ensemble

Notes & Reviews:

Johann Rosenmüller was one of the mos ttalented and prolific young composers in Germany: he was organist at Leipzig's Nikolaikirche and all-but-assured the upcoming Thomakantor position, when in 1655 he was arrested due to a sex scandal. Rosenmüller escaped from prison and fled to Venice, where he spent mos tof the rest of his life, performing at Saint Mark's Cathedral and teaching at the Ospedale della Pieta. This recording presents music from the time of Rosenmüller's exile in Italy, and alternates large-ensemble chamber sonatas published in Venice in 1670 with the first recordings of unpublished bass cantatas - featuring the outstanding young baritone Jesse Blumberg - which ACRONYM has freshly transcribed from a manuscript collection.
