Radical, daring and extremely refined: that’s how Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach saw his new path for the Oratorio, after his father’s Passions had marked the climax of the baroque era. Encouraged by his godfather Telemann and liberated from the yoke of the capricious Frederick of Prussia, he found himself in Hamburg with an audience hungry for new music. And he brought them his oratorios, no longer in churches but in concert halls, where he demanded the listener’s undivided attention for sudden changes of mood and colour.

Die Auferstehung und Himmelfahrt Jesu did indeed leave its traces: both Haydn and Beethoven showed great interest after a series of three performances conducted by Mozart in Vienna. Not only did it pave the way for Haydn’s oratorios, but there are also clear influences on the Pamina arias in Die Zauberflöte written a few years later. Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach wrote to his publisher Breitkopf, “I think this is the best work I have ever written”.

With over thirty years of experience in Baroque music, the remarkable Il Gardellino ensemble and the Flemish Radio Choir, directed by Bart Van Reyn, offer a superb version of Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach’s oratorio, The Resurrection and Ascension of Jesus. Written around 1774, this oratorio made a great impression on the composer’s contemporaries, including Mozart, who conducted it in 1788.

This work is divided into two parts of more or less equal length—the first devoted to the Resurrection of Christ, the second to his Ascension into Heaven. It differs from many oratorios of the time due to the almost non-existent dramaturgy of Karl Wilhelm Ramler’s libretto, which favours the expression of emotions and feelings over a picaresque vision of this biblical story.

The meticulous 1992 version performed by the Collegium Vocale Gent under the direction of Philippe Herreweghe left a lasting impression. Bart Van Reyn opts here for a slightly lower pitch and an accelerated tempo, and the result is a performance that really lives up to his predecessor! With its dramatic tension, this new approach is an undeniable success. – Pierre Lamy
