http://to.goclassic.co.kr/newrelease/2550

Karl Richter가 Archiv를 통해 녹음한 75개의 칸타타가 모두 Blu-ray로 재 출시되는 군요.

비록, 전집을 완성하지 못하고 타계해 아쉬움을 남긴 그의 명작이 이제 고음질로 리마스터링되어

그것도, 매우 저렴한 ($50 ~$75 내외) 가격에 재 출시되어 참으로 기쁩니다.

 

Release Date: 29th Jun 2018
Catalogue No: 4835037

검색을 해 보니, 일단 2장의 블루레이 디스크에 75개의 칸타타를 모두 수록하고 있고, 아울러 Text도 빠짐없이 수록해 한권의 책자형태로 배포되며, 플래스틱 수납부를 갖춘 디지팩 형태로 배포되 디스크 손상의 걱정도 없는 말끔한 디자인으로 출시가 되는군요.^^

 

Karl Richter’s legendary recordings of the complete Bach cantatas, newly remastered in 24bit/192kHz and presented on two high fidelity Blu-ray Audio discs in a luxury hardcover edition. In the 1950s, when Karl Richter made his earliest recordings of sacred vocal music by Bach, his disciplined and vital approach was hailed as revelatory. Richter’s firm grounding in Lutheran theology, his intuitive feeling for the nobility of Bach’s music and his pronounced gift for eloquent phrasing all contribute to a performing style which possesses not only a warmth of sentiment and a distinctive expressive fervor but also a supple inner strength, strikingly evident in the chorale-based choruses which, in so many instances, provide the focal point of Bach’s cantatas.

Karl Richter’s recordings on Archiv of the complete Bach Cantatas are reference recordings of the repertoire through the genius combination of Richter’s leadership and the assembled forces of his meticulously trained choir, his handpicked group of instrumental obbligato players and leading Bach soloists. Now DG presents all 75 cantatas remastered in 24bit/192kHz on just TWO high-fidelity Blu-ray Audio discs in a 252pp hardcover book with the complete sung texts. Five HD Digital Albums are also being made available which together represent the entirety of the physical set.

This edition presents reference recordings of the 75 Cantatas from one of the most appreciated Bach performers of the 20th century and the assembled forces of leading Bach soloists including Julia Hamari, Edith Mathis, Ernst Haefliger, Peter Schreier, Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, Theo Adam and many more!

The 252 page booklet includes: Complete sung text in German and English; Essays by Nicholas Anderson about Richter as an interpreter of Bach; and by Walter Blankenburg about the genre of cantatas in the times of Johann Sebastian Bach; and new notes by Edith Mathis and Peter Schreier

In the 1950s, when Karl Richter made his earliest recordings of sacred vocal music by Bach, his disciplined and vital approach was hailed as revelatory. Richter’s firm grounding in Lutheran theology, his intuitive feeling for the nobility of Bach’s music and his pronounced gift for eloquent phrasing all contribute to a performing style which possesses not only a warmth of sentiment and a distinctive expressive fervour but also a supple inner strength, strikingly evident in the chorale-based choruses which, in so many instances, provide the focal point of Bach’s cantatas.

Richter’s Bach recordings spanned a period of almost 30 years. At first he played continuo under Ramin, then he directed his own performances before becoming, in 1958, a major artist for the Archiv label. But it was in the early 1970s that Archiv provided him with an opportunity of recording a cantata for every Sunday and Feast Day of the Lutheran church year.

The project, embracing 64 cantatas, most of them newly recorded for the Archiv cycle, was one which gave Richter particular pride and deep satisfaction; and it is here, above all, at the very heart of Bach’s creative world, that we can admire Richter’s skill in blending component parts to form a unifying whole. The most important of these were his meticulously trained choir of women’s and men’s voices, his handpicked group of instrumental obbligato players, and an outstanding line-up of soloists to whom he expressed the strongest artistic commitment and for whom he demonstrated undying loyalty.

기존, 시디의 다소 열악한 음질에 답답함을 느끼던 차에, 설레이는 마음으로 이 명연들을 다시 감상할 수 있다니, 기쁘기 그지없습니다.

 

*절판된 과거 명연들을 구할 수없어 해외 사이트를 돌며 구판 음반들을 고가에 매입하며 아쉬움을 달래던 것이 엇그제 같은데, 점차, 개선되 고음질 포맷으로 다시 재출시되거나, 전집형태로 묶여 다시 나오는 현상... 앞으로도 계속 진행되리라 확신합니다. 점차 축소되고 시장성을 잃어가는 클래식 음반업계가 수익성을 개선할 수 있는 활로로 모색한 것이 과거 검증된 명반들 중심으로 고음질포맷으로 재 출시하는 것이라 생각되는데, 아마도 이런 출시 행태는 계속 되리라 생각됩니다. (참으로 반가운 일이기도 하지요^^. 이젠, 절판된 과거 구반들 고가에 중고반이라도 찾으러 다니는 고행을 중단해도 되겠다는 확신이 섭니다.)
