Notes & Reviews:

Frank Martin was on the program of Peter Dijkstra's inaugural concert in October of 2005, when he - an authentic shooting star on the choral scene - assumed the direction of the Chor des Bayerischen Rundfunks at the sensationally young age of 0nly 26. The same composer is now also featured at the beginning of a-cappella production for the BR-KLASSIK label, on which the chorus presents itself under its director Peter Dijkstra. Frank Martin's Mass for Double Chorus, which was not given its world premiEre until 40 years after it was composed, has nevertheless ranked since then as one of the Swiss composer's major works. ZoltAn KodAly's Missa brevis is directly marked by powerless despair over the horrors of World War II. Francis Poulenc's Litanies A la Vierge Noire was prompted by a far more personal motivation. He composed the work on the death of his composer friend Pierre-Octave Ferroud in 1936, a short time after Poulenc had found his own way to religion on a pilgrimage.
