Alex Potter, countertenor
La dolcezza


Alex Potter – praised by the press as »a rising star in the world of
countertenors« – interprets sacred works by Telemann for cpo on this CD.
The setting of Psalm 6 continues to be thoroughly obliged to the tone of
the sacred concertos of the seventeenth century associated with names such
as Dietrich Buxtehude, Johann Rosenmüller, and Johann Schelle. However,
even though this psalm setting entitled »Ach, Herr strafe mich nicht« very
much resembles similar works by older authors, it nevertheless displays a
very special aura. Accompanied by two violins and basso continuo, an
affectively nuanced narrative of a soul plagued by fear and hoping for the
end of its torments is heard. The Missa in B minor is similar in style to
the music of the psalm; it is what is known as a Lutheran »short mass,«
which with its Kyrie and Gloria merely consists of two compositional
complexes. All the numbers comprising »Me miserum« concern the faithful
soul, which tells its story, is aware of its insufficiency but does not
yield to despair, and therefore is able to register its experience of
faith. A sonata and two fugues round off the CD.
