NOMINATED FOR A 2013 GRAMMY AWARD!

George Frideric Handel  
George Frideric Handel - Israel in Egypt, HWV 54  
Orchestra and Choir of Trinity Wall Street - Julian Wachner, Conductor  
Israel in Egypt, Handel’s grand choral oratorio experiment, was a failure when first presented in London in 1739, yet it may well be the greatest work Handel ever composed. In 1756 the composer literally re-thought the work, substituting an entirely new first part. This recording presents both versions: Handel’s 1756 revision and the original part 1 from 1739. Julian Wachner makes his debut with the famous choir and baroque orchestra of Trinity Wall Street, in New York.

Johann Sebastian Bach

 

J.S. Bach - The Complete Motets

 

Trinity Wall Street - Julian Wachner, conductor

 

Bach’s seven motets represent the continuation of a long and distinguished tradition of vocal composition, dating back to the late medieval works of Dufay. Bach’s motets represent the apogee of the genre and are his most demanding vocal works. The present recording is the first in a new series with the musical forces of Trinity Wall Street, conducted by Julian Wachner. It is released to commemorate the 10th anniversary of September 11, 2001.

Julian Wachner, Conductor

 

Born in Hollywood and raised in New York City, Julian Wachner is one of North America’s most exciting and versatile musicians, sought after as conductor, composer, and keyboard artist. As Director of Music and the Arts at Trinity Wall Street, Wachner is Principal Conductor of the Trinity Choir, Trinity Baroque Orchestra and Novus NY. In addition, he oversees Trinity’s numerous concert offerings, events, and outreach initiatives in lower Manhattan and Brooklyn. These duties aptly complement his role as Music Director of the Kennedy Center’s

GRAMMY® Award-winning Washington Chorus and as Principal Conductor of Opera McGill, Montreal. Wachner inspires uncommon praise.The Boston Globe has hailed him for “the kind of

technical command, large-spiritedness, and fiery imagination that all but shout to the skies: ‘Major Talent!’” Following his account of the Messiah with the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Philadelphia Inquirer observed: “Few conductors have drawn such focused, committed, and meticulous music-making.” Wachner’s original music has been variously described as “bold and atmospheric” (New York Times), “jazzy, energetic, and ingenious” (Boston Globe), and “a compendium of surprises” (Washington Post). E. C. Schirmer publishes Wachner’s complete catalogue of compositions, and his recordings are with the Chandos, Naxos, Atma Classique,

Arsis, Dorian, Musica Omnia, and Titanic labels. www.julianwachner.com

TRINITY WALL STREET

 

The Choir of Trinity Wall Street is the premier professional ensemble

of the Music and Arts program at Trinity Wall Street. Comprised of North America’s leading vocal specialists in both Early and Contemporary Music, and under the direction of composer-conductor Julian Wachner, the internationally renowned Trinity Choir performs

in concerts throughout the year; leads liturgical music at both Trinity Church and St. Paul’s Chapel; and records an extensive and varied repertoire for Naxos, Avie Records, and Musica Omnia. The New York Times has praised the Choir for possessing “voices so pure they suggest a seraphic chorus beyond the human sphere.”

The Choir, with the Trinity Baroque Orchestra, presents weekly performances of the Cantatas of J. S. Bach at “Bach at One,” a series created and inaugurated in 2011 to present the complete Bach cycle over a five-year period. Presented in historic St. Paul’s Chapel, “Bach at One” has quickly become a favorite destination each Monday in

the Financial District for New Yorkers and visitors alike. Trinity Wall Street also remains well known for its thriving concert series, “Concerts at One,” which offers an eclectic program of emerging and mid-career artists to an appreciative audience each Thursday afternoon. In addition to its annual performancesof Handel’s Messiah (which always top the critics’ picks) the Choir alternates annual performances of

the two great Passions of J.S. Bach during Holy Week and presents

the complete Christmas Oratorio within the context of Trinity’s Twelfth Night Festival of Early Music. The Trinity Choir is regularly featured

in web casts and broadcasts throughout the Northeast. “Bach at One” is broadcast live on WWFM, The Classical Network; and, in addition

to regular offerings on Trinity’s own web site, select performances are broadcast on Classical WQXR. Also committed to the music of our time, the Choir of Trinity Wall Street performs a newly composed work every week during the vocally improvised service of Compline, a candlelight presentation each Sunday evening at St. Paul’s Chapel. Recent composers have varied from Nico Muhly and Robert Kyr to Alexandra Fol and Charles Wuorinen. The Choir has appeared with numerous organizations and ensembles including the Mark Morris Dance Group (in New York and Moscow) and Gotham Chamber Opera; has performed at various festivals and venues including the Tribeca Film Festival, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Cloisters, Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center, and the Brooklyn Academy of Music;

and has collaborated with guest conductors and artists including Frederica Von Stade, Joyce DiDonato, Gil Shaham, Luca Pisaroni, Angela Meade, Anthony Roth Costanza, Harry Bicket, Jane Glover, Andrew Parrott, Simon Carrington, Francisco Nuñez, Andrew Megill, Stefan Parkman, and John Scott.

The Trinity Baroque Orchestra made its debut for Trinity Wall Street’s 2009 performances of Handel’s Messiah, and has since performed

and recorded exclusively with the Trinity Choir in masterworks of

Bach, Handel, and Schütz, including this recording of Israel in Egypt, Bach’s Passions, and a wealth of Bach Cantatas presented weekly in historic St. Paul’s Chapel for “Bach at One.” The group boasts a

varied roster of North America’s finest period players. Robert Mealy,

described by The New Yorker as “New York’s world-class early music violinist,” serves as principal concertmaster. Players in the Trinity Baroque Orchestra bring extensive experience gained with the finest orchestras (Baroque, Classical, and modern), chamber ensembles

and festivals  worldwide.
