This short video clip is a compilation of excerpts from several different concerts. It opens with the Fünf Gedichte von Richard Pohl, Opus 15.
While researching Christus
I discovered the manuscript of this set of unaccompanied choral works in the prototypical dusty box in the Sächsisches Staatsarchiv
in Leipzig. Because I edited them for ECS Publishing
, I knew them by heart and surprised everyone by conducting them from memory for the first time at the concert. They’re still some of my favorite SATB choral works and I hope to edit Bülow
’s other choral works forthwith.
The clip also presents Ave verum corpus
by Mozart and Franz Liszt, from a concert devoted to the “Ave verum corpus” hymn. That concert took place while I was interim director of Collegium musicum at the University of Miami
