Product Description

The narrative of Christ's Passion as retold by Barthold Brockes (a dominant figure in early 18th-century German literature) is of such dramatic power that it was set to music by thirteen different composers (including Handel, Keiser and Mattheson). Telemann's version, premiered in April of 1716, became so famous that JS Bach, no immature youngster at the time, copied it out in full 23 years later. René Jacobs has striven to restore this quite extraordinary score to life in all its rich complexity.
--------

Le récit de la Passion du Christ rédigé par Barthold Brockes (figure dominante de la littérature allemande en ce début du XVIIIe siècle) était d'une telle puissance dramatique qu'il fut mis en musique par 13 compositeurs différents (entre autres Haendel, Keiser et Mattheson) ! Créée le 2 avril 1716, la version de Telemann acquit une telle renommée que le déjà très mûr J. S. Bach en ferait une copie intégrale de sa propre main 23 ans après... René Jacobs s'est appliqué à faire revivre dans sa densité première cette partition tout simplement extraordinaire !

5.0 out of 5 stars Brockes Passion Aug. 27 2011
By Bjorn Viberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Brockes Passion is a 2009 harmonia mundi s.a. under the direction of René Jacobs who leads the Akademie fur Alte Musik Berlin. We also have the privilege to listen to RIAS Kammerchor. The booklet is quite massive, i.e., close to 130 pages. Carsten Lange has written the music notes and these have been translated into English by Charles Johnston. The lyrics are available in German, French and English. Included are also short biographies of the conductor, soloists, the choir and the orchestra. Also included are portraits of Telemann himself and Bartold Heinrich Brockes. Highly recommended indeed. 5/5.

5.0 out of 5 stars PASSION PASSIONNEE ! ! ! April 25 2011
By PVP - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Ahhhh... un peu de débats sur Amazon pour ce disque qui a fait une grosse publicité pour sa sortie. Commentaires animés et opinions partagées... je ne m'en męlerai pas : j'aime ce double cd que j'écoute souvent. Telemann n'a pas la męme notoriété que Bach, Handel ou Vivaldi, mais il en a eu davantage qu'eux de son vivant. Telemann est un mélodiste génial et son énergie créatrice n'a rien à envier aux précités. La passion du Christ est un sujet baroque par excellence, Telemann l'écrit aussi bien que Bach : cette musique fond dans l'oreille, pas dans la main !
