Orchestral Fantasies on Protestant Chorales by Christian Sprenger. This is a small glimpse into the recording with the Staatskapelle Weimar at the Weimarhalle, May 2016.
For centuries, Martin Luther’s chorales have been not just a pillar of liturgical song, but a source of strength and inspiration for many people and indispensable part of their lives. Now Christian Sprenger has given them a symphonic makeover, following in the footsteps of the great film music composers and conveying their emotional message in a way that speaks to us even more directly today. Sprenger himself leads the full-blooded and technically flawless Staatskapelle Weimar on this new GENUIN release. Here’s to an old love, discovered anew!
