    Default Vocal Recital: Sabine Kaipainen - Lamentation No. 2 from ZWV 53

    There is a recording with Sabine Kaipainen and the Moscow Baroque Soloists of music by Aldgasser, Haydn, Telemann and Zelenka (rather a mixed selection, therefore) on the Thorofon label. It seems to be available as an MP3 download as well as a CD from the Thorofon label.

    The Zelenka piece is the second lamentation from ZWV 53.

    See http://www.classicsonline.com/catalo...spx?pid=750638

    The Moscow Baroque Soloists seem to play on period instruments. Ms Kaipainen and her husband Tuomas are Baroque flautists and recorder players who perform as Musica Poetica.

    Both sites provide samples which I have not yet listened to. I have not heard Ms Kaipainen's singing before.

    Thank you for pointing out this recording. It's one I have obviously missed in the database...

    In case anyone is interested, listening to the sound samples for this disc on-line it seems that Ms Kaipainen is a rather unsteady contralto who uses far too much vibrato. She sounds a much better flautist! I know that the amount of vibrato appropriate for Baroque music is still a subject of some controversy in the minds of some, but you only have to listen to the types of melodic lines Zelenka wrote for soloists to understand that minimal vibrato must have been the rule and expression was more about varying tonal colours and dynamics. I would be interested to hear what others have to say about this.
