PANM 360 OTTAWA BACH CHOIR – SIX MOTETS par Elena Mandolini Les six motets de Jean-Sébastien Bach font partie du répertoire très connu de la musique chorale. Malgré (ou peut-être grâce à) leur grande popularité, de nombreux enregistrements de ces œuvres existent, offrant toujours une expérience d’écoute renouvelée. L’Ottawa Bach Choir, sous la direction de Lisette Canton, en présente justement une interprétation exceptionnelle dans son plus récent album, paru sous […]

HANDEL Dixit Dominus BACH & SCHÜTZ Motets Showing that Toronto is not the only Canadian city capable of producing superb period ensembles, the Ottawa Bach Choir, conducted by founding director Lisette Canton, have combined with Matthias Maute’s Ensemble Caprice from Montreal in eloquent, persuasive performances of Handel, Schütz and Bach.

Critique « Fanfare »

septembre 1st, 2019

HANDEL: Dixit Dominus BACH & SCHÜTZ: Motets It seems to have become fairly common nowadays for choruses, some new, some long-established, to issue discs that either show off a particular program or ensemble. Never mind that downloads and sites such as YouTube may be more accessible to the public at large, but the compact disc is not yet on the same path as the dinosaurs in terms of relevancy. These […]

HANDEL: Dixit Dominus BACH & SCHÜTZ: Motets ATMA The recent flow of recordings of Handel’s Dixit Dominus has brought the recognition that this Psalm setting of 1707 was the composer’s first great choral masterpiece. I have lost track of how many recordings it has been given, but I can say that this new one is among the very best. The Ottawa Bach Choir, a 21-member mixed-voice group, digs into the […]

Critique « Classical Recordings – Jesu, meine Freude »

octobre 28th, 2016

Soloists, Ottawa Bach Choir, Lisette Canton, conductor (OBC) January 24, 2009 Two of J.S. Bach’s best known choral cantatas make up this collection, together with the eponymous motet Jesu, meine Freude. Four excellent soloists — soprano Agnes Zsigovics, counter-tenor Daniel Taylor, tenor Benjamin Butterfield and bass Daniel Lichti — make substantial and individual contributions to the enterprise, with Butterfield’s ever-beautiful singing a particular pleasure. A fine little baroque orchestra was […]
