Musik in Alten Städten & Residenzen, EMI Germany published recordings of Early Music

Posted on 12 May 2013 by admin

The recordings in this 10 CDs box-set are delightful documents of early music , published between 1972 and 1983, ranging from the Middle Ages to the Classical era. It is in the legendary series REFLEXE-Music of old Cities and Royal Courts. Each recording in the series focused on a particular composer or group of works, or a particular place or period. The idea per se wasn’t new: Producer Gerd Berg himself had already tried it out with the series Musik in alten Städten und Residenzen  in the 1960’s, which is now being re-released for the first time in a single box set. Historic performing practice was still in its infancy when these recordings were made, between 1961 and 1967.

Now the new album of instrumental music by Renaissance composer Alexander Agricola ‘Colours in the Dark’ is due for release on April 8 on the Christophorus label. The disc features a number of recorded premieres, including a setting ofLe serviteur by Agricola, based on Dufay’s famous chanson, and an untitled joint-composition, which Agricola is thought to have written together with Johannes Ghiselin. Also on the album are several chansons which formed the basis of Agricola’s instrumental re-workings, and two new pieces byGramophone critic Fabrice Fitch, inspired by Agricola and designed for a modern-day audience. The album also includes the first recorded reconstruction of a 15th-century Italian cetra, the only known metal strung instrument in Europe of that time, and a cornetto, which, despite being widely used throughout the 15th century, is rarely heard in modern period performances.

And an album dedicated to the Medieval Minnesinger Neidhart on Naxos. ‘Colours in the Dark’ is due for release on April 8, 2013.
