Label: Oehms Classics
Reference: OC 950
Description: The 61-minute Sanctus Petrus is one of the works Hasse wrote for his several short periods of employment at the Ospedale degl'Incurabili in Venice, dating from somewhere between 1755-59. It's not in Classical style like his very late works but in its sequenced motivic combinations carefully strung together, it is in that post-baroque style one also hears in late Handel. Latin-German texts. Kirsten Blaise, Heidrun Kordes, Jacek Laszczkowski (sopranos), Vivica Genaux (mezzo), Terry Wey (alto), Chorus and Orchestra of the Ludwigsburg Schlossfestspiele; Micihael Hofstetter.
