About the album
J. S. Bach's cantata "Christ lag in Todesbanden" provided a context for "Morimur", the celebrated Christoph Poppen/Hilliard performance of Bach's "Ciaconna" which reveraled "hidden chorales." The cantata is now at the centre of a new recording focussed on connections between Bach and Anton Webern. Christoph Poppen is the "spiritus rector" of the project, directing the Munich Chamber Orchestra and contributing his own, remarkable orchestration of Webern's revelatory String Quartet 1905.
