Info for Edward Elgar: Partsongs - From the Bavarian Highlands



From the Bavarian Highlands – mit diesem Chorliederzyklus setzte der britische Komponist Edward Elgar seiner Begeisterung für bayerisch-alpenländische Volksmusik nach einem Ferienaufenthalt in Garmisch ein klingendes Denkmal in der typisch englischen Kunstform der Partsongs. Diese mehrstimmigen weltlichen Chorlieder hatten sich im 19. Jahrhundert als Kernrepertoire der weit verbreiteten Laienchorbewegung herausgebildet.

Neben den Bavarian Highlands präsentiert der Künstlerische Leiter des BR-Chores Howard Arman eine Auswahl weiterer Partsongs, die Elgars große stilistische Bandbreite innerhalb dieser Gattung dokumentieren.

„Ein zauberhaftes Elgar-Programm ... Der Chor singt ... auf sehr hohem Niveau, mit bewegender Geschmeidigkeit und wunderschöner Intonation.“ (pizzicato.lu)

"As a composer of English-language choral songs, Elgar is still little-known on the European mainland; in the United Kingdom, however, the situation is very different. The country has long had a lively choral scene, focusing primarily on English music – from Purcell and Handel to Hubert Parry, Charles Villiers Stanford and Elgar, all the way to Benjamin Britten and today’s contemporary composers. The program on this CD has been compiled and conducted by the Englishman Howard Arman, one of today’s most knowledgeable experts on British choral music and artistic director of the Bavarian Radio Chorus, and these recordings should do much to boost the popularity of this highly appealing music on the European mainland as well. In addition to the six songs of the cycle “From the Bavarian Highlands” op. 27 (1895), the CD also contains Elgar's “Spanish Serenade” op. 23 (1891), the “Two Partsongs” op. 26 (1894), “As Torrents in Summer” from op. 30 (1896), “Five Partsongs from the Greek Anthology” op. 45 (1902), “Weary Wind of the West” (1902/1930), “The Reveille” op. 54 (1907), “Go, Song of Mine” op. 57 (1909), the elegy “They Are at Rest” (1909) and “The Prince of Sleep” (1925)."
