With Bach's music for solo violin
Thomas Gould violin
Soprano Emma Walshe
Baritone Stephen Kennedy
Nigel Short conductor
Fauré Requiem 36’
Bach Partita No.2 in D for solo violin 30’
and chorales from cantatas and the St Matthew and St John Passions
Fauré’s Requiem favours serenity, joy and liberation over the dread and terror employed by most composers in settings of the Mass of the Dead. By adopting a more comforting approach, he crafted music of astonishing beauty and tenderness. As on Tenebrae’s acclaimed recent recording they preface it with Bach’s totemic work for solo violin, interspersing its vitality and intricate design with the deceptive simplicity of Bach’s contemplative chorales, highlighting the hidden themes within this fascinating work.
