Catalogue Number: 09N045
Reference: 937 1677-6
Description: We offer this new release both for SACD collectors and for the fact that it contains only the second available recording of the Bach Corali ("Nun komm der Heiden Heiland", "Meine Seele erhebt den Herren" and "Wache auf, ruft uns die Stimme") of 1931, the first masterfully using a large group of strings, the second assigning the chorale melody to a solo trumpet and the third giving the melody to a solo horn while using a double bassoon with the strings, which gives the impression of organ pedals. Beethoven Orchestra Bonn; Stefan Blunier. SACD hybrid.
