zeitfenster - VI. Biennale Alter Musik Festival: Trauer und Trost (28.04.2012, Konzerthaus Berlin)

Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin 

RIAS Kammerchor 

Olof Boman 
Berit Norbakken Solset Sopran
Anders J. Dahlin Tenor
Andreas Wolf Bass

Johan Helmich Roman "Herren känner de frommas dagar" - Begräbnismusik für König Frederik I. (1751)

Ingvar Lidholm "... a riveder le stelle" für Chor a cappella

Georg Friedrich Händel Concerto grosso F-Dur op. 6 Nr. 2 HWV 320
Johann Sebastian Bach "Ich hatte viel Bekümmernis" - Kantate für Soli, Chor und Orchester BWV 21

I'm not really into the whole festival, but I got a chance to watch a highlight concert of it: Trauer & Trost. Conducted by young-talented conductor, Olaf Boman, the concert delivered a very interesting repertoire. the choir piece by Ingvar Lidholm is truly a moment for life - you can't get it from a CD. Berit Solset shined during the sopran part.  

Both parties of the concert, the famous choir and award-winning orchestra, are well to be celebrated. Such a proud night.

Rating: 8/10
