About the album

Verrukkelijke bekende en onbekende liederen van Mendelssohn
Dit album bevat een absoluut verrukkelijk programma met liederen van Mendelssohn, waaronder alle ‘veteranen’ als Auf Flügen des Gesanges, plus een aantal Liederen die onterecht wat minder bekend zijn. Sopraan Suze van Grootel, met haar prachtige stem en grote interpretatieve inzichten, geeft absoluut betoverende uitvoeringen die tot aan de kern van de liederen gaan. Haar gebruikelijke begeleider Kees Schul bewijst nogmaals dat hij eersteklas is. Het gebruik van een originele Erard piano uit 1842 (het instrument dat de componist ook bezat), geeft de uitvoeringen net dat extra vleugje authenticiteit waarmee dit album zich onderscheidt van de rest.

Suze van Grootel is vooral bekend als de vooraanstaande eerste sopraan van het vermaarde ensemble Camerata Trajectina. Kees Schul is bekend als hooggeachte musicus op het gebied van kamermuziek en begeleider voor zangers, en was een leerling van Jan Wijn en Aloys Kontarsky in Keulen.

Felix Mendelssohn

Jakob Ludwig Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy born and widely known as Felix Mendelssohn, was a German composer, pianist, organist and conductor of the early Romantic period.

Mendelssohn is often compared to Mozart. Both of them were child prodigies, both had a talented sister and they both died at a young age. Mendelssohn, who as a child also painted wrote poetry, was born in small family which converted to christianity from judaism. As a composer he preferred looking back, rather than forward: his main examples were Bach, Handel and Mozart. It was Mendelssohn who retrieved Bach from oblivion and pushed for a revival of his music, which still lasts today. One century after its premier, Mendelsson performed the St Matthew Passion for the second time ever, in 1829.

Three years, earlier, on his 17th, he had already composed his masterfully overture A midsummer night's dream op. 21, based on Shakespeare's play. Today, it is still considered as one of the absolute masterpieces in all of the orchestra reperoire. His Violin Concerto op. 64 belongs to the most beautiful works of the 19th century as well. During his travels through Europe, he wrote his brilliant Italian Symphony, Scottish Symphony and the overture The Hebrides.

Although Mendelssohn had a prosperous career, his weak physique made him emotionally vulnerable. The death of his favourite sister Fanny became fatal: Mendelssohn died in the same year, at the age of 38.
