Title: Martha von Castelberg – Lieder und Motetten
Catalogue No.: SM 334
Martha von Castelberg (1892-1971) was highly talented musically. As the daughter of the Zurich private banker Paul Carl Eduard von Orelli (1849-1927) and Beatrice née von Reding (1865-1929), she received early private lessons from the violinist Joseph Ebner, who taught at the Zurich Conservatory. The present recording of songs and motets by Martha von Castelberg gives a representative insight into her compositional Creating, which accompanied her all her life.
In addition to the Basel-based “larynx Vokalensemble” founded in 2005 under the direction of Jakob Pilgram, consisting of young, professionally trained singers, this CD also features many renowned Swiss soloists. Accompanied by Judit Polgar on piano, we hear the Swiss soprano Estelle Poscio, the mezzo-soprano Susannah Haberfeld, the Bernese tenor Remy Burnens and the young Swiss baritone Äneas Humm.
