The Arcis-Vocalisten Will Sing CARL LOEWE (on October, 22nd, 2018)

Once again, there will be a concert by the Arcis-Vocalisten. And as always, it is my pleasure to do some advertising for the choir. After all, I personally know at least two of the singers.

Ropes of Death – the passion oratory by Carl Loewe.

Most of the musically interested people will know Carl Loewe (1796-1869) as a prolific composer of songs and master of ballads who was quite adept at mirroring character. Only few people know that his major profession was that of cantor at Stettin’s main church, St. Jacobi, where he also worked as the town’s musical director. We have 17 clerical and secular oratories that document his work. The passion oratory “Das Sühneopfer des Neuen Bundes”, which he probably wrote in 1847, is one of the central pieces.

The Arcis Vocalisten will present this concise and penetrative music that is well worth re-discovery with an excellent set of soloists and the renown orchestra in original pitch “L’arpa Festante”. They will also make a recording with the Bayerischer Rundfunk and the label OehmsClassics in a time-consuming studio production.

Loewe’s language of sound expertly combines the power and suggestiveness of Händel’s choirs with the sound of Bach’s passions, especially in the words of Jesus, and with his own melodious and sensual song artistry in the arias and ensembles. The composer made a conscious effort at creating something meaningful that lies between opera and oratory.
