Catalogue Number: 10T052
Reference: 555 089-2
Description: Two recordings of this in five months? Really? See May’s catalogue for full blurb (05S002). We merely repeat the last sentences: “There are Lisztian leitmotifs, Handelian choruses, Bachian (or Regerian?) counterpoint... No longueurs or soggy piety here; the score moves and carries the listener along at an appropriate pace.” and note that both are performed by Polish forces but that this one is sung in Polish translation of the original German texts. 2 CDs. No texts. Wioletta Chodowicz (soprano), Robert Gierlach (baritone), Wojtek Gierlach (bass), Sławomir Kamiński (organ), Podlasie Opera and Philharmonic Choir, Poznań Philharmonic Orchestra; Łukasz Borowicz.
