Rezension

Yet Linn s on-going commitment to SACD pays off handsomely, with three-dimensional crowds and vocal soloists standing forward of their accompaniment all confirmation of this as my new benchmark. --BBC Music Magazine, April 2008

Butt's St Matthew is truly original in spheres resonating beyond established parameters. --Gramophone

One of the finest available one-voice-per-part Bach performances. --Independent on Sunday

Biographie der Mitwirkenden

Founded in 1996 by Susan Hamilton and Ben Parry, the Dunedin Consort was soon hailed by the critics as a group that has done so much to transform the vocal life of Scotland.The dynamic ensemble has rapidly established its presence in the artistic life of its home country, appearing in venues throughout Scotland, from remote Highland churches to major concert halls.It has performed a diverse repertoire that ranges from Medieval and Renaissance music to contemporary works such as Stockhausen's Stimmung,together with a range of commissions from composers both in Scotland and beyond.Since Ben Parry's departure in late 2003,John Butt has joined Susan Hamilton as co-artistic director and is now musical director of all the larger projects. With John Butt's particular expertise in Baroque music and performance practice,the group has consolidated its existing strength in the Baroque repertoire,together with developing the Dunedin Players as an ensemble dedicated to performance with historical instruments.Since the release of Dunedin's recording of Handel's Messiah in its first performed version(Dublin, 1742)in late 2006(Linn Records),the group has reached a new level of critical acclaim,culminating in the Classic FM/Gramophone Award for the best recording in the Baroque Vocal category in October 2007.In January 2008 the group achieved further success by being presented with the best Baroque Album award at the Midem Classical Awards in Cannes,France.This is the only such award to a Scottish group in recent years(and the first to an ensemble that is not a Scottish National Company or BBC orchestra)and now gives Dunedin a truly international reputation.Dunedin's next release,of Bach's Matthew Passion,has already been recorded and will be appearing on Linn in March 2008.One particular speciality of the group is to perform familiar works from the Baroque era in unusual ways:for instance,presenting Handel's Messiah successively in the variety of versions that Handel himself developed in nearly 20 years of performances; presenting Bach's Passions in the lean vocal scoring of their original performances(the new recording presents the work for the first time in Bach's last performed version).Another direction is to commission new pieces to complement and play off the old: William Sweeney,Errollyn Wallen and Peter Nelson have,for instance,written works to complement the era of George Buchanan,the Song of Songs settings of Heinrich Schütz and the motets of Bach. The Consort has appeared at festivals in Belgium,Canada,France,Italy,Spain,Northern Ireland and the Channel Islands as well as at the Edinburgh International Festival.It has worked in collaboration with ensembles including the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra,Sinfonia 21,Scottish Ensemble,Mr McFall's Chamber,Paragon Ensemble,Florilegium,La Serenissima and the Scottish Chamber Orchestra,has appeared on BBC 2 and BBC 4 television and been broadcast on BBC Radio 3 and BBC Scotland.
