By John Middleton on March 22, 2006
This CD is very special. No matter how often I listen to it I always want more.

The work comes from Telemann's wondrous old age - just one of many remarkable (mostly large-scale) vocal works that he composed in his 70s and 80s. Der Tod Jesu gives us everything from drama and melodic beauty to profound gravity. Memorable arias and duets are mixed with wonderful choruses, all with colourful orchestral contributions.

It is interesting to note that at the same time, a younger contemporary of Telemann's (C.H. Graun) set the same text to his own Der Tod Jesu. They even compared notes and performed each other's versions. The Graun is generally lighter in style and possibly less compelling, but still well worth getting to know. For me however, the Telemann is the greater work and should be in the colletion of every fan of this truly remarkable man.

In this recording the soloists, choir, orchestra, conductor, and recording crew do Telemann proud.

There's nothing meek or morbid about Telemann's 'Jesu' in this passion oratorio. This is a confident muscular Jesu, closer to the Saxon Heliand than to the Man of Sorrows depicted on the CD cover; the first aria proclaims Him a hero: "Du Held... du kannst und willst mein Schutzgott sein." (You Hero... you can and will be my Protector-God.) Before that, the Siegfriedesque cantabile for horn that opens the composition sounds not so much like a lament as a call to don one's spiritual armor, and throughout the whole text Jesu is portrayed as indomitable amid the torment and agony of his followers. Specifically, He is the Lion of Judah, the model of Christian fortitude against all enemies. Yes, there are also moments of anguish in the text and poignancy in the music, but overall this is a depiction of the Passion as a Triumph. Whether that concept accords with your personal theology, dear Music Fan, is your own concern. As for me, I love the music too much to be antagonized by mere dogma.

Telemann was seventy-four years old when he composed De Tod Jesu for concert hall rather than congregational performance. The text was written by Karl Wilhelm Ramler, a literary academic less than half the composer' age and a disciple of the famous poet Klopstock. Ramler outlived Telemann long enough to be ridiculed by Goethe and Schiller for his arrogance and pedantry, but it seems the composer liked his work and chose it for several cantatas. Recitativos and arias for basso dominate Der Tod Jesu, with arias for alto and duets for basso/alto or basso/tenor being prominent. In short, this is a robust, masculine sanctity befitting, I think, the brisk independent optimism of the citizens of Hamburg, for whom it was written.
