The Great Escape - Music & More

As early as the 1820s, the Dessau court Kapellmeister Friedrich Schneider conceived the plan to compose a coherent series of four full-length oratorios dealing with the life of Jesus. Although Schneider did not realize his original plan of a tetralogy, three complete oratorios were nevertheless composed, forming a coherent trilogy (Christ the Child, Christ the Master, Christ the Redeemer). With the edition published in 2021 and this first recording of Christus das Kind, a foundation has been laid for the revival of this forgotten trilogy, more than 190 years after it's premiere.
