Mendelssohn: Motets & Piano Trio

CD’s rarely contain both chamber and choral music, but in the case of Felix Mendelssohn, the juxtaposition is justified. For which is the more Bach-inspired? The a cappella works which breathe Bach in every note, or the Piano Trio no. 2 with the choral Herr Gott dich loben wir, which also motors Bach’s cantata 130? An exceptional trio featuring violinist Pekka Kuusisto, cellist Pieter Wispelwey, and pianist Alasdair Beatson, as well as the acclaimed Flemish Radio Choir and conductor Hervé Niquet, bring homage to the composer who gave second life to Bach, and grace and poetry to the romantics.
