Barockens mästare

Philippe Herreweghe

Grattis Philippe Herreweghe, 70!

Den belgiske dirigenten Philippe Herreweghe grundade sitt Collegium Vocale i Gent 1970. Som den stora uttolkare av barockmusik han är har han givit ut otaliga inspelningar med renässansens och barockens mästare, men även nyare musik, på olika bolag. 70 år (ung) är han still going strong, med ständigt nya skivinspelningar och konsertserier. Vi firar med specialpriser på några uppmärksammade inspelningar från de senaste åren.

Vi firar med kampanjpris på ett urval av hans skivor, se nedan!

Brahms, med Ann Hallenberg som solist

Although the symphony was the most prestigious instrumental genre of his time, Brahms avoided it for many years. In 1872, when he was already more than forty years old and was widely acknowledged for his chamber and choral music, he observed: ‘I will never write a symphony! You can’t imagine what it’s like to hear a giant treading behind you.’ The giant was of course Beethoven, at once an inspiration and a source of intimidation for composers of Brahms’s generation. Fortunately, however, he went back on his promise a few years later with his First Symphony, followed by three more composed between 1876 and 1885. The two works presented here are the Second Symphony, sometimes sombre, sometimes radiant, and the Fourth, a genuine masterpiece of the genre. This disc, recorded on period instruments under the masterly direction of Philippe Herreweghe, is released to coincide with a double anniversary: as a prelude to the Flemish conductor’s seventieth birthday, it also celebrates the twenty-fifth year of existence of one of his favourite ensembles: the Orchestre des Champs-Élysées.

Gesualdo, madrigaler

A personality has who provoked considerable controversy over the centuries, Carlo Gesualdo (1566- 1613), aristocrat, musician and murderer of his first wife, is no less a composer whose music is marked by subtlety and refinement. His innovative Sixth Book of Madrigals, written two years before his death, exploits all harmonic, chromatic, and textural possibilities to meet the texts’ expressive requirements and proves to be a veritable masterpiece of the genre. After a first release devoted to the Italian composer’s sacred works, the Tenebrae Responsoria, Philippe Herreweghe and his Collegium Vocale Gent invite us to (re)discover his secular music for the 450th anniversary of his birth. In masterful fashion, they propose a delicate, expressive reading of this complex music, doing justice to the modernity of the musical language of the Prince of Venosa. The acoustics of the church in the little Tuscan village of Asciano, where the programme was recorded in 2015, provides an ideal sound setting for this music.

Philippe Herreweghe, conductor


Impressed by the Handel works that he heard in London, Haydn felt the need to compose oratorios. First came Die Schopfung (The Creation) Which met with resounding success; then Baron Gottfried van Swieten proposed to Haydn an arrangement of James Thompson's poem 'The Seasons'. Initially, Hadyn was little attracted by the text, which deviates from the classic oratorio based on a religious text, but subsequently let himself be convinced. The result, for three soloists, chorus and an orchestra, is a vast pictorial fresco of Nature that describes landscapes and the feelings that they arouse. For the first time, Philippe Herreweghe gives us his own vision of an oratorium by Haydn. This recording is also the first in a Haydn cycle with Philippe Herreweghe for Phi, of which the next project is... Die Schopfung!

Bach-kantater med Collegium Vocale

For the second time on the Phi label, Philippe Herreweghe presents four Bach cantatas written during the first year the composer spent in Leipzig.

In relation to the repertoire composed in Weimar, the instrumentarium is enlarged to adapt to the size of the churches of Saint Thomas and Saint Nicholas.

But, above all, the instrumental virtuosity is much greater, as are the vocal demands confronting the choirs and solo singers, trained at the time by Bach himself.

The Collegium Vocale Gent, under the direction of Philippe Herreweghe and in the company of top-notch soloists (Dorothee Mields, Damien Guillon, Thomas Hobbs and Peter Kooij), show us in dazzling fashion to what point the composer endeavoured to create veritable musical sermons going far beyond a simple musical setting of the text. By way of a bonus, the album contains a magical little piece, Komm, Jesu, komm by Johann Schelle, one of Bach's predecessors in Leipzig.

Mendelssohn, med Monica Groop som solist

'I was won over by the sheer beauty of the reading expressed in choral singing of he utmost accuracy and by orchestral playing in which every strand is clear...The soloists are happily on a par with the choir and orchestra. Salomaa is a deeply expressive, vital and exact Elijah...Isokoski sings the most radiantly attractive 'Höre, Israel' since Ameling and makes an urgent Widow. John Mark Ainsley is a great improvement on his Teldec counterpart...Monica Groop is a euphonius, fluent alto soloist. The recording, made in Metz Arsenal, is warm and properly balanced...It matches the flowing, unsentimental yet always sensitive conducting of Herreweghe, who ensures that the interpretation is all of a piece. In consequence this is a version that must lie alongside those of Masur and Sawallisch as a recommendation' Alan Blyth Gramophone [11/1993]
