Trauer-Music: Music to Mourn Prince Leopold
(Jewel Case Packaging)
Andrew Parrott is a master of musicological detective work, known for his adventurous and uncompromising scholarship. He is also internationally known for his pioneering historically informed performances and recordings of pre-classical repertory. This new release combines the best of both, resulting in the first full reconstruction and recording of the funeral music for J.S. Bach's patron, Prince Leopold of Cöthen. Parrott conducts the renowned Taverner Consort and Players, the organization he founded in 1973, and a superb roster of baroque vocal soloists. A unique document and superb performance make this a recording for classical music aficionados and lovers of Bach's music alike.
