About

With their latest recording, Frieder Bernius and the Kammerchor Stuttgart reach a new pinnacle in the art of interpretation.

The Cinq Rechants for 12 mixed voices by Olivier Messiaen, with their rhythmically striking onomatopoeias, pose an enormous challenge for the performers. Since the novel and extremely complex rhythms which are composed of small cellular units cannot be fitted into traditional schemes, the time signatures change constantly. Melodically, Messiaen draws not only from traditional Andean love songs, but also from the medieval Dawn Song, in which a night watchman warns the secret lovers of discovery.

The production is complemented by 20th-century French vocal music for soloist ensembles. Outstanding!
