Les Rois De Versailles: Lute Music By Pinel And De Visee Brilliant Classics

Nagrania muzyczneMuzyka poważna

This release showcases the lute music of two French composers, Germain Pinel and Robert de Visée, both of whom have long been overshadowed by the more renownedfigures of Jean-Baptiste Lully and François Couperin. Pinel and De Visée were active not long after the role of the lute underwent a profound change in France: towards the end of the 16th century, following a decline in the popularity of polyphonic song, the instrument was no longer used to support vocal music, and short suites of dances began to develop for lute solo. The lute was a delicate instrument reserved for small audiences, a court instrument relished by the aristocracy and wealthy bourgeoisie for the intimate concerts of the Parisian salons, and a domestic instrument par excellence. It accompanied all the activities of everyday life. Both Pinel and De Visée were in the service of Louis XIV, who inherited a great musical ? and in particular lute-playing ? tradition encouraged by his father Louis XIII and grandfather Henry IV, and both musicians cultivated the new forms that had recently emerged for the instrument. The suites recorded here provide extraordinary variety: beautiful and sombre allemandes, courtly sarabandes and spritely gigues characterise the music, which is closely associated with the lavish reign of the ?sun king?: the extravagance of his expanding palace at Versailles and the opulence of his elegant lifestyle is epitomised in the stylish music that serenaded his court. Indeed, these works represent music at the height of the grand siecle: France?s period of political and cultural dominance. Having studied at the Paris Conservatoire and with renowned lutenist Hopkinson Smith in Basel, Portuguese-born Miguel Yisrael has gone on to specialise in music of the French Baroque period; the author of, among others, a new series of scores for the Baroque lute called La Rhétorique des Dieux, he is well placed to record the music of Pinel and De Visée. This recording marks his fourth release on the Brilliant Classics label, with two of his previous releases acclaimed in Diapason magazine, where he was described as ?an interpreter to be followed closely?. This release brings us to the magnificent court of Louis XIII and Louis XIV, the Sun King, whose palace was a hotspot of the greatest artists of the time. Both composers De Visée and Pinel worked at the court, playing and composing for the lute, the fashionable instrument for the aristocracy. The repertoire consists of suites of different kind of dance forms: solemn allemandes, courtly sarabandes and spirited gigues alternate as entertainment for kings and courtiers. Lutenist Miguel Yisrael already recorded several CD?s for Brilliant Classics, all of which met with great critical acclaim: 5 star reviews and a Diapason d?Or.The booklet contains excellent and extensive liner notes, biography and information on the historical instruments used. Other information:Recorded in 2014.Booklet includes comprehensive liner notes and an artist biography.French liner notes available online.

The prolific Domenico Alberti squeezed a surprising number of works out of a short and eventful life, achieving fame across Western Europe, particularly for the socalled ?Alberti bass?, an arpeggiated style of left?hand keyboard playing. Yet his presentday reputation does not equal these heights, his fame largely limited today to his Eight Sonatas. This recording puts this to rights, showcasing Alberti as a composer who deserves to be remembered for centuries to come, as a musical poet possessed of remarkable invention and imagination.Alberti?s compositions display the simplicity and sensitivity of Clementi, the vigour of Mozart and, in the briefest of moments, an almost Schubertian or Chopinesque pre?Romanticism. His keyboard compositions are generally individual movements or twopart toccatas or sonatas, the whole full of melodic echoes and intentional reworkings, which form intriguing bridges between the pieces.The three distinct periods in the composer?s output of keyboard music are mirrored here by the use of organ, fortepiano and harpsichord (all of which Alberti would have had to hand in his day) ? corresponding also to the period practice of ?playing on all manner of instruments?, with individual pieces often not tied down to a specific instrument. This combination adds a Talented keyboardist and international award?winner Manuel Tomadin has a particular interest in Renaissance and Baroque music and historical organs. He brings all of his expertise to bear on this superb album.This 4CD set contains the complete keyboard music by Domenico Alberti, a First Recording!Domenico Alberti lived a short but very productive life, from 1710?1740. He was famous as a composer, cembalo player and singer (the world famous castrato Farinelli heard him sing, and recognised in him a fearful rival).Alberti claim to fame is his ?discovery? of the so-called Alberti-bass: the accompanying left hand chord broken in a certain way (like c-g-e-g etc). This figure forms the basis of the Viennese classical style, and was used by all composers of keyboard sonatas and sonatinas. Alberti?s Sonatas and Toccatas are in two movements, the first an allegro in free form, followed by a mellow andante in arioso style. In order to achieve maximum variety Manuel Tomadin performs these works on three instruments: an historic organ (1773 Francesco Dacci organ), a harpsichord and a fortepiano. Manuel Tomadin already recorded successfully for Brilliant Classics, notably the Leipziger Chorale by Bach (BC94456).Recorded in Italy in 2013 and 2014.Contains liner notes written by the artist in Italian and English.Contains a biography of the artist.Contains a full organ specification.

Sardelli: Baroque Concertos, Psalm, Chamber Music Brilliant Classics

Nagrania muzyczneMuzyka poważna

As the composer, conductor, scholar and provocateur explains in his own notes, this is Baroque music for our time. Federico Maria Sardelli's long experience researching and editing the music of Vivaldi leaves him perhaps ideally placed to recreate such music in his own image, which he does here with chamber, orchestral and vocal music that is less a pastiche, in which identity is obscured, than a defiant recreation of a past age. 'It's important for me to point out that I don't compose "neo-Baroque" music, but Baroque music. It's not a question of revisiting a musical idiom, or being influenced by it. What I do is breathe new life into a style that's dead so that it regains its own original language and adheres to its own original criteria, expressing vibrant new ideas that are keeping with its identity.'As his fellow composer Carlo Boccadoro remarks, the result 'is rather like filling antique containers with sparkling coloured liquids so that they take on an entirely new aspect; or looking at certain Renaissance portrayals that seem slightly distorted until they are viewed from exactly the right angle... Like optical illusions themselves, his music is both real and immaterial, built from solid counterpoint and born aloft by airy lightness. Sardelli subtly eludes the whole subject of musical idiom so central to all forms of contemporary music, fully aware of his own unique and inimitable individuality.'The performers on this unique disc are experienced performers of the Baroque style, playing in 'historically informed' conditions -- a further paradox that enriches this time-bending recording. Under the baton of Sardelli, Modo Antiquo appears regularly at major international festivals and concert halls. Its discography of more that 40 titles includes many world premiere recordings.Other information:- New recording made in 2013.- Another obscure baroque composer dug up from the dusty archives of some Italian library? No! Federico Maria Sardelli is alive and kicking, a highly respected musician and conductor rightly famed for his numerous outstanding recordings (the Vivaldi Edition on Naive).Sardelli is also a composer of Baroque music, and to comment on that we better let him speak himself: "It's important for me to point out that I don't compose 'neo-Baroque' music, but Baroque music. It's not a question of revisiting a musical idiom, or being influenced by it. What I do is breathe new life into a style that's dead so that it regains its own original language and adheres to its own original criteria, expressing vibrant new ideas that are keeping with its identity."- Sardelli's Baroque music is sparkling, luminous, witty, deeply feeling, and extremely well crafted: a true "discovery"!- Performed by his own Modo Antiquo, and a line-up of excellent soloists of international renown. And of course conducted by himself..- Booklet notes including tributes to Sardelli from the Vivaldi scholar Michael Talbot.

MARAIS: PIECES DE VIOLE, BOOK V Brilliant Classics

Nagrania muzyczneMuzyka poważna

It is surprising that so little is known about Marin Marais today, as he could be considered one of the most important French composers of the Baroque period. Born in 1656, the son of a shoemaker, Marais spent his entire life in Paris. His musical career began when he joined the choir of the Sainte-Chapelle, but when his voice broken he decided to learn the viol, studying with the renowned bass viol player Sainte-Colombe, who had a profound influence on the young Marais. Marais went on to enter the royal orchestra and the orchestra of the Académie Royale de musique, where he performed and studied composing under Jean-Baptiste Lully. He was hailed as the greatest bass viol player of his time, and is said to have played the viol 'like an angel'.Marais's vast output for the viol (over 800 pieces!) is astonishingly varied, original and affecting ? no other composer has written so many works of such high quality for the instrument. The fifth and final book of Pieces de viole showcases Marais's art at its most mature and sophisticated, and includes a wider range of musical forms and techniques than the previous four books. Although the fifth book contains many of the conventional dance forms that listeners would expect to hear in a Baroque suite, there are many remarkable descriptive pieces that justify the claim that Marais was the first composer of programme music. A particularly striking example is the ?Tableau de l'Opération de la Taille? from the final Suite: an extraordinarily detailed musical depiction of an operation to remove a gall stone that the composer underwent!These captivating suites are brought to life in vivid performances by acclaimed chamber musicians and early music specialists Rainer Zipperling, Ghislaine Wauters and Pieter-Jan Belder.Other information:- Recorded in 2013.- Little is known of the life of Marin Marais, but he is unquestionably one of the most important and original composers of the French Baroque. His public ?breakthrough? came with the blockbuster film ?Tous les matins du monde?, which features his beautiful works for the viol.- Marais left a vast output of suites for the viol, the viola da gamba, in total 5 books. This new recording presents the 5th book, the most daring and original of all. In these suites of dance forms he introduces the first known examples of ?program music?, music depicting non-musical ideas or events. One suite for instance describes an operation to remove a gall stone, which includes the binding of the patient and his painful screaming!- Excellent performances by one of the best known viola da gamba players of the moment, Rainer Zipperling, seconded by harpsichord veteran Pieter-Jan Belder.- Includes booklet notes and biographies of the artists.

Distler: Die Weihnachtsgeschichte Brilliant Classics

Nagrania muzyczneMuzyka poważna

The revival of Protestant church music after the First World War marked the renewal of pieces available for direct use in services and represented a search for a new scale of values. Admired in church music circles but persecuted by the Nazis for his 'degenerate' music, Hugo Distler was one of its foremost cultivators, imbuing his choral music with pre-Classical forms to create a distinctive style that would be accessible to the 'common' man.The tender Weihnachtsgeschichte Op.10, composed in 1933, is one of Distler's many works adhering this criteria and which narrates the traditional Christmas story according to the gospels of St Luke and St Matthew. Right from the start, in the first of two motets which frame the piece, the composer conjures up complex modal harmonies that evoke ancient, dark images, and throughout the composition (written for four soloists and four-part a cappella chorus) he recalls the musical language of the great Baroque composer Heinrich Schütz, drawing on his use of word-painting and imitative counterpoint but all the time embellishing the work with new techniques such as syncopated rhythm and harmonic dissonance. The free recitative style of the soloists is particularly affecting -- here the note heads without heads encourage the use of natural speech rhythms, reflecting once again the influence of Schütz through his frequent close matching of music to intonation.Distler's life came to a tragic end when, in the face of ever increasing persecution in Berlin and the constant threat of recruitment into the military service, he committed suicide in 1942. Multiple repeated phrases in Weihnachtsgeschichte such as 'Zu Bethlehem im jüdischen Lande' ('To Bethlehem in the Jewish countries') are testament to the composer's resolve to stand true to his faith, despite the persecution that it ultimately aroused. This recording, featuring a stellar solo cast ably supported by the Thomanerchor Leipzig -- one of the most respected choirs in the Europe -- can only increase our appreciation for a composer whose work represents an important chapter in sacred music history.Other information:- Hugo Distler was one of the most important composers of choral music in the first half of the 20th century. A Protestant, he mainly used his native language German. His music reaches back to the great German polyphonists like Schütz, imbuing it with polymodal and polyrythmical elements, creating a unique, introverted, ascetic but deeply felt language, which touches the heart. His personal troubles and the repression of his music by the Nazis who though it 'degenerate', led to his suicide in 1942, a tragic end of a highly talented composer and human being.- Excellent performance by the world famous Thomanerchor Leipzig and superb German soloists.- Booklet contains German and English notes on the music.

Pietro Antonio Locatelli was one of the most important composers of the Baroque period, being a particularly celebrated composer of violin repertoire. His collection L?arte del violino contains 12 violin concertos with 24 caprices in the first and last movement of each, allowing for astonishing displays of virtuosity.He was born in Bergamo, Italy, in 1695, and at the age of 16 went to Rome to study the violin. Despite the popular myth that he was taught by Corelli, it?s unlikely that he ever made contact with him; however, he certainly studied with members of the Corelli ?school?, improving both his compositional skills and his performing technique.Although details of the composer?s life are somewhat sketchy, it?s clear Locatelli was linked to some of the most influential aristocrats of the time. At some point he was under the protection of Monsignor Camillo Cybo, an advisor to the Pope; at another point, he was granted the title of ?virtuoso da camera? by the Habsburgian governor of Mantua Philipp von Hesse-Darmstadt. Just these fleeting details are enough to tell us of Locatelli?s growing reputation for virtuosic playing; in Munich in 1727 he was awarded 12 gold florins for a performance, and he pops up again in Germany in 1728, receiving money for services to the court in Kassel.Eventually, business-savvy Locatelli ended up in Amsterdam, where the music publishing industry had taken off. Thanks to the composer?s meticulous attention to the publication of his works, and the fact that he was legally required to give copies to the Leiden University library, we are left with excellent manuscripts of his Opp. 1?9. His business acumen must have paid off, as his estate at the time of his death comprised large collections of works of art and old books, indicating an impressive prosperity.Locatelli was the forerunner of 19th-century virtuosity, and the works on this release reveal a composer eager to exploit the sound of the violin. As well as writing technically demanding solo passages, however, he was also an inventive writer for the supporting instruments, demonstrating a superb knack for fugal writing, and intensifying the texture of the concertino group with the addition of a viola, something unusual for the time. This release is an excellent opportunity to become better acquainted with Locatelli and the wealth of music he composed throughout his life. Demonstrating the versatility of Locatelli?s writing, this set includes his Op.5 Trio Sonatas ?o due violini o due flauti? for the violin as well as the flute, allowing the listener to experience the composer?s florid writing in two very different interpretations.Igor Ruhadze and his group Ensemble Violini Capricciosi have dedicated themselves to recording Locatelli?s works for some years now. Careful research along with a genuine enthusiasm for the overlooked composer?s works have led to a fine set of recordings, previously described by Gramophone as ?brilliantly and at times breathtakingly performed?. The release also includes new recordings of the composer?s Concerti Grossi Opp. 1 & 7 and Introduzioni Teatrali Op.4, as well as the haunting Sinfonia funebre, a work to mark the death of an unknown woman in Rome. The vibrant playing of the Ensemble Violini Capricciosi is complemented by Musica ad Rhenum, led by highly acclaimed flautist Jed Wentz, who perform the Flute and Trio Sonatas. This release represents excellent value for money, at only ?30.00 for 21CDs of listening pleasure; a compelling and masterful accomplishment just waiting to be enjoyed.The first and only Complete Locatelli Edition ever!Locatelli, like many of his contemporaries, moved abroad and settled in Amsterdam/The Netherlands, concertising as a violinist (and a ?devil? he was as a performer!), and founding a flourishing publishing house.Locatelli composed in the tradition of the Italian Baroque, in the well known forms of the Concerto Grosso, Solo Concerto and Trio Sonata.

Opis - The "true amalgam of ecstasy and reason" which Glenn Gould found within Paul Hindemith"s music is abundantly evident in the three piano sonatas which he wrote fairly quickly in 1936, following the artistic success but deep personal wound created by the first performances of his masterpiece, Mathis der Maler, which was banned by the Nazis as soon as it had been heard. Inevitably these sonatas are more compact and restrained in expression, but their novel forms still enclose furious marches and impassioned laments within the wrong-note counterpoint that was Hindemith"s characteristic tone of voice. The first is the most substantial of the three sonatas, a five-movement work inspired by a Holderlin poem. The second is more agile and delicate in form, most clearly derived from Baroque models, somewhat ironic in tone and concluding with a witty Rondo. The third is perhaps the most lucid of the triptych, in which Beethoven"s influence is writ large, from the throwaway subject of the first movement to the strenuous fugue of the finale, which is prefaced by an imposing slow movement with the tragic pulse of a funeral march. This is Maurizio Paciarello"s debut recording for Brilliant Classics, but he has made previous recordings of repertoire from Kuhlau to Respighi. This Hindemith CD benefits from his wide study of historically informed performance values from Baroque and Classical times onwards, including teaching from Paul Badura-Skoda, and performances of Beethoven"s music on original Broadwood instruments. Paul Hindemith"s piano sonatas span his whole creative life, and may be seen as a cycle of creative and emotional development. Hindemith?s musical language is based on the 19-th century classics, and is imbued with his highly personal use of elements from the Baroque, polytonality and jazz. Pianistically highly challenging and virtuoso, they are true masterworks, and deserve to be played more in concerts. Italian pianist Maurizio Paciariello, schooled by Aldo Ciccolini and Paul Badura-Skoda and Prize winner of the ARD Competition, is a champion of rare repertoire and specialist on period instruments.

Excerpt: Johann Pachelbel ( or ; German: or , or ; baptized September 1, 1653 - buried March 9, 1706) was a German Baroque composer, organist and teacher, who brought the south German organ tradition to its peak. He composed a large body of sacred and secular music, and his contributions to the development of the chorale prelude and fugue have earned him a place among the most important composers of the middle Baroque era. Pachelbel's music enjoyed enormous popularity during his lifetime; he had many pupils and his music became a model for the composers of south and central Germany. Today, Pachelbel is best known for the Canon in D, the only canon he wrote - although a true canon at the unison in three parts, it is often regarded more as a passacaglia, and it is in this mode that it has been arranged and transcribed for many different media. In addition to the canon, his most well-known works include the Chaconne in F minor, the Toccata in E minor for organ, and the Hexachordum Apollinis, a set of keyboard variations. Pachelbel's music was influenced by southern German composers, such as Johann Jakob Froberger and Johann Kaspar Kerll, Italians such as Girolamo Frescobaldi and Alessandro Poglietti, French composers, and the composers of the Nuremberg tradition. He preferred a lucid, uncomplicated contrapuntal style that emphasized melodic and harmonic clarity. His music is less virtuosic and less adventurous harmonically than that of Dieterich Buxtehude, although, like Buxtehude, Pachelbel experimented with different ensembles and instrumental combinations in his chamber music and, most importantly, his vocal music, much of which features exceptionally rich instrumentation. Pachelbel explored many variation forms and associated techniques, which manifest themselves in various diverse pieces, from sacred concertos to harpsichord suites.
