Philipp Lachenmann: DELPHI Rationale

 

The St. Mark's Passion by Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach

2006-04-14, Berlin Philharmonic Hall, Berlin | Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach (1714–1788), the second and best-known son of Johann Sebastian Bach, composed the St. Mark's Passion in 1786 while musical director of Hamburg's five main churches. The St. Mark's Passion performed by the EuropaChorAkademie and the Mendelssohn-Symphonia under the direction of Joshard Daus continues the series of premières of passions by Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach from the archives of the Sing-Akademie. 2003 and 2004 already saw the performances of the St. John's Passion and the St. Matthew's Passion, respectively.

An additional highlight of this concert evening is the Great Mass in C Minor by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in a new, revised version by the American Mozart scholar Robert D. Levin, who tries to complete the mass left uncompleted by Mozart. Levin's version of the mass was first performed at Carnegie Hall in New York in 2005.

The Berlin Sing-Akademie, founded by Carl Christian Friedrich Fasch in 1791, until the early 20th century was not only an outstanding institution of choral music, but also an important intellectual and cultural center in Berlin, whose influence radiated throughout Germany. Its members included Mendelssohn-Bartholdy, Meyerbeer and many other composers. Goethe, Schadow, Hegel, Wilhelm von Humboldt and other prominent figures were closely associated with the Sing-Akademie. The archive of the Berlin Sing-Akademie—taken to Kiev after the Second World War—was returned to Berlin only in 1999.
