Felix Mendelssohn: Die erste Walpurgisnacht

Add To Wish List + $17.09 ($18.99) - Out of stock

Goethe’s dramatic ballad Die erste Walpurgisnacht inspired Mendelssohn to compose a magnificent and vivid portrayal of the conflict between an old pagan community and the new aspirations of Christianization, between belief and superstition and the witches’ sabbath, steeped in legend. The composition became one of his most successful choral works. Now Frieder Bernius has recorded the work on album with the Kammerchor Stuttgart, the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, and Renee Morloc, David Fischer, Stephan Genz, and David Jerusalem in the solo parts. The recording also includes excerpts from Mendelssohn’s incidental music Oedipus at Colonos to Sophocles’ tragedy. With this recording Frieder Bernius once again demonstrates why his Mendelssohn recordings have achieved benchmark status worldwide.
