Vejam bem, meus amigos, nada tenho contra CDF Bach, muito pelo contrário! Só que costumo postar o que ouço e estou em pleno período — alguns diram crise — moderno. Espero não provocar a ira cedeefiana.
Um comentarista escreveu algo muito interessante sobre o Credo de Penderecki: aqui, ele não utiliza estilos de empréstimo de outros compositores; aqui, é a própria voz de Penderecki numa composição que une coral e solistas de forma absolutamente natural. O compositor teve a fortuna de contar com Helmuth Rilling e um notável grupo de solista na estreia que apresentamos, mas o que interessa realmente é a espetacular música de indiscutível religiosidade que nos faz pensar em alguns grandes autores do passado, como nosso papai.
Deixo-vos com o entusiasmado comentário de um músico:
A masterpiece for this century in a superb recording
In June 1999 I had the privelege of performing a recently written work by Polish composer Krzysztof Penderecki, under his direction. By that time I had no idea who was Penderecki, but as soon as I heard that piece I was enchanted by his music: the piece was Credo. Since then, I have been studying his art and atracted even more to his music. Credo is definitely a masterpiece for this century, from the beginning till the end. As soon as it begins, with the choir, in the powerful main theme it captures all your attention. Particularly expressive is the place where the theme comes back, with the soloists. The second movement is very beautifull and rich in textures and solo melodies that express the happening of the Lord’s birth. But the focus point should be the third movement, with it’s Latin, Polish and German interpolations. The quasi aria Pangue Lingua (Mz) is rich in power and virtuosity, but it is enriched by the glorious appearance of the hymn Ludu moj ludu, for me, the most beautiful moment in the whole piece. The 4th movement is incredibly dramatic and rhythmic. The 5th, brings again the main theme with virtuoso parts for the soloists. I must take notice of the powerful harmonies in the brasses in “visibilium omnium” and the beautiful melody in the choir in “unum Dominum…” After a big dramatic section, it begins to push toward the ending, only interrupted by an Alleluia in the children’s choir that resembles the Gregorian chant. The finale is amazing: three big Amens, but…, wait…, a soft chord in the offstage brass remind us that Credo is supposed to be part of a BIG Mass to be completed soon. So this is not really THE END. This recording is great: the choirs, the orchestra, the soloists, the CONDUCTOR, but the one who should REALLY be praised is the composer. Bravi!
