FRANZ SCHUBERT: Landler in Ges-Dur
For music lovers and connoisseurs the name Neubeuern is inseparably connected with the now internationally celebrated choral society of that town. Both German and international press have commented on the achievments of this ensemble as "The Neubeuern phenomenon", "The Neubeuern miracle", "The authority on choral music". - One could go on quoting. Under the direction of Enoch zu Guttenberg this group from Neubeuern are now known as, one could almost say fanatical interpreters of the works of J.S. Bach: the St. Matthew Passion, the St. John Passion, the B minor mass, as ardent Mozart admirers and as musicians very much at home with Beethoven, Stravinsky and Verdi. And the more famous the Neubeuern Choral society becomes and the more international their venues, the greater is the danger of forgetting who they actually are and where they really come from. They are, and wish to remain singers of folk-music in the best sense of the word; a society grown out of numerous folkmusic ensembles. They have never denied or broken from their origins. In "Neubeurer Advent Singing", the diversity, which is central to them becomes clear. The choir performs as one unit, but they open up to reveal in the Trio, three, four and five part singing, the whole spectrum of their talents. But for all this, the aim of the "Neubeurer Advent Singing" is to convey more than just musical diversity. The choir presents a musical and at the same time theological program. The story of the birth of Christ is related in both text and melody. Even the Passion,- the objective of the Holy Night, prevails. The old Bavarian carols reveal their poetry, their earthy, sometimes grim humor. But they also show the sombre gloomy side. The Advent Singing, therefore is no mere choral excursion into a folksy idyll. It reveals the roots from which Neubeuern's approach to interpretation grew.
