Haydn's Seven Last Words... and London Symphonies released on CD
Following the appearance of our live concert recording of "The Seven Last Words of our Savior on the Cross", with interpolated texts by Luise Rinser, from Good Friday 2008, our first recording of three of Haydn's London symphonies will be released on the Ars-Produktion label in the summer of 2009. The new SACD contains the symphonies No. 96 in D major, No. 95 in C minor, and No. 93 in D major. On a bonus CD, the introductory remarks by Bruno Weil for the individual symphonies can be heard, just as they were presented in concert. Listening examples will soon be available at this site.
Haydn’s Seasons and Beethoven’s Missa solemnis
Concerts on 21 March and 6 June 2010 in the Essen Philharmonie
Following the outstanding success of our anniversary concert for the Essen Philharmonie at the beginning of June, the Cappella Coloniensis is making plans for the next season as well as the season after that.
In 2010, two concerts are scheduled in the Essen Philharmonie:
On 21 March 2010 the Cappella Coloniensis will perform Haydn's oratorio "The Seasons" to close their Haydn cycle in the Essen Philharmonie. The soloists will be Sibylla Rubens - soprano, Jan Kobow - tenor, and Hanno Müller-Brachmann - baritone. The Tölzer Boys Choir will sing, and the conductor will be Bruno Weil.
On 6 June 2010, in connection with Essen's activities as the European Capital of Culture 2010, the "Missa Solemnis" by Ludwig van Beethoven will be performed. The singers will be Simona Saturová - soprano, Gerhild Romberger - alto, Christian Eisner - tenor, and Georg Zeppenfeld - bass. The conductor will be Bruno Weil.
Both concerts will begin at 18:00h. Further information concerning both concerts may be found at: www.philharmonie-essen.de
Plans for the next concerts and the seasons 2010/11 and 2011/12 are already underway. We would be very pleased if in the coming season you would keep us in mind.
