Label in the Spotlight: Rondeau Production

This successful label from Leipzig, the hometown of Bach, over the past years has established itself as a specialist for artistically and technically high-class recordings of sacred vocal music. The label’s extraordinarily productive cooperation with world-renowned choirs and its corporate strategy that is geared towards the highest standards have generated a unique catalogue. This catalogue encompasses the performance of famous ensembles such as the St Thomas Boys Choir Leipzig, the Windsbacher Knabenchor, and choirs from Hanover.

Highlights in the label’s repertoire include Lobsingt Ihr Völker Alle with the Windsbacher Knabenchor (ROP2014) and a recording of Bach’s Mass in B Minor with St Thomas Boys Choir (ROP4009-10). The latter is the first recording of this ensemble accompanied on historical instruments. In October 2011, Rondeau Production started a ten-part series of Johann Sebastian Bach’s cantatas, recorded by the St Thomas Boys Choir Leipzig and the Gewandhausorchester under the baton of Georg Christoph Biller. The series was published under the title Das Kirchenjahr mit Johann Sebastian Bach in honor of the St Thomas Boys Choir’s 800th anniversary.

To hear the Rondeau sampler, access NML as usual, go to the Playlists section, and select the Label in the Spotlight folder under the Themed Playlists tab. If you are on your institution's premises, you may also be able to access it if you CLICK HERE
