REINHARD KEISER (1674-1739): Brockes-Passion.
Catalogue Number: 05P023
Reference: RAM 1303
Description: Handel, Telemann, Stölzel, Fasch and Mattheson are just some of the composers who set this text and Keiser's, of 1712 - the year Brockes' text was published, is the earliest. It was ideally suited for an opera composer with its pictorial language designed to move the reader/listener emotionally and Keiser probably had the Hamburg opera's soloists in mind for his arias. 2 CDs. German-English texts. Zsuzi Tóth (soprano), Jan Van Elsacker (tenor), Peter Kooij (bass), Vox Luminis, Les Muffatti; Peter Van Heyghen.
