Notes & Reviews:

German conductor Helmuth Rilling (b. 1933) has long been acknowledged as one of the world's experts on the music of J.S. Bach. He founded the Gachinger Kantorei in 1954 and gained an international reputation. The choir has played a considerable part in the rediscovery and representation of the Romantic choral repertoire, especially works by Brahms and Mendelssohn. Since 1965 Helmuth Rilling has also been conductor of the Stuttgart Bach Collegium and has toured with both ensembles around the world. Maestro Rilling presents a program of sweeping German Romanticism inspired by the works of Goethe and represented by the immortal Alto Rhapsody of Brahms, Schubert's Gesang der Geister uber den Wassern, and an excerpt from the Brahms rarity Rinaldo. Rilling and his Gachinger Kantorei Stuttgart are joined by the world-class talents of alto Lioba Braun and tenor Carsten Suss in performances that unquestionably establish Rilling as the preeminent interpreter of the Germanic choral tradition. This program is further evidence of the continuing vitality of Helmuth Rilling's musical concept as well as the relevance of Goethe for the twenty-first century. Destined to become one of the great choral discs of the decade, this album will be a most valuable addition to any choral music collection.
