28 Chorlieder für gemischte Stimmen (Ersteinspielung)
||Robert Fuchs (1847 - 1927)
Kammerchor CONSTANT Köln, Ltg. Harald Jers
Robert Fuchs was a highly respected professor of Harmony, Counterpoint and Composition at the Vienna Conservatory. His students included such renowned personalities from the world of composition as Hugo Wolf, Gustav Mahler, Alexander von Zemlinsky, Franz Schreker and Jean Sibelius. Johannes Brahms, who was often highly critical in his judgment of new musical works, held Fuchs’s compositions in high regard, and on several occasions lent him vigorous support.
The part songs for four mixed voices are characterized by haunting melodies which on occasion are reminiscent of Franz Schubert, and a sophisticated compositional technique. The somewhat inward looking musical language, with its highly skilful handling of detail, reveals the sensitive nature of the composer.
This CD contains all part songs for mixed voices, interpreted by the chamber choir CONSTANT directed by Harald Jers.
