Confluence - Ronald Moelker, recorded - Niels Bijl, saxophone

Confluence - Ronald Moelker, recorded - Niels Bijl, saxophone
ID: ACDBA091-2
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Baroque
Subcollection: Saxophone

The year is 1996. Classically trained saxophonist Niels Bijl is at the end of his Conservatorium education. In a record shop in the centre of Enschede: in a spare hour he is trawling the cd racks, looking for unknown music, new inspiration. Ronald Moelker walks past him, purposefully, towards the counter. With a clear question: do you also have recordings of classical music on saxophone? A conversation quickly follows, a friendship is born.

What follows; more than 20 years of research, collaboration and a shared passion for enjoying life. Niels and Ronald, managing to remain unfettered by the apparently different worlds of their chosen instruments, take on all challenges together. The 15th Century British complexity of Baldwine’s A Duo, the light-footedness of Francois Couperin’s Tic-Toc-Choc. Bach as uniting thread, with highlights such as the two-part canon from the Kunst der Fugue and the flute sonata BWV 1035. Aided by the expert mastery of recorder builder Adriana Breukink, the saxophone and recorder come ever closer to each other. The romance of young love is reflected in Tandernaken. The festive cadans of the early middle ages are celebrated in the Estampie Petrone. In an unknown duo, referred to as No. 3, harsh dissonant sounds are continuously replaced with beautiful harmonies, ending in a perfect unison. Ronald Moelker’s composition Ithaca, written for Niels, is the perfect introduction to the heart of the collaboration and friendship: Two fantasies by Telemann.

London Love - Ensemble Rossignol

London Love - Ensemble Rossignol
ID: ACDBH050-2
CDs: 1
Type: SACD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Chamber Ensemble

Ensemble Rossignol, a leading recorder and theorbo ensemble, perform works from the master composers in the shadow of Hanel.

Pieces by Loeillet, Axel D. Ruoff, Babell, Bach, Geminiani and Handel himself all in celebration of the city that played host to Handel's music and became his creative home.

London was an exceptionally prosperous city in the 18th century, which was reflected by its lively musical society.Handel, a German by birth, played a dominant role in this. Although he travelled extensively, he spent most of his life in this city and was even officially made a British subject in 1727. Although he was primarily known for his brilliant operas and oratorios, with their treasure trove of splendid arias, he was also a composer of lovely and sophisticated chamber music works. At this time, composers from all different countries travelled to London in the hope of launching a successful career there. However, this proved a difficult venture indeed for most of them, as they remained firmly overshadowed by Handel.
Jean-Baptiste Loeillet, born in Ghent, moved to London in 1705 after he completed his studies. He started as principal oboist of the Queen’s Theatre and later at the Opera, making a name for himself as a virtuoso flute player. He was also known as the first composer of recorder music of renown in England and thanks to his efforts the instrument gained substantial popularity. John Walsh published his music in London under the name: John Loeillet of London.
The British composer William Babell spent his entire life in London. His work is strongly influenced by Handel, whom we can presume to have been one of his teachers. The exceptionally virtuoso ornamentation in the slow movements of his sonatas has been written out meticulously.
In the first half of the 18th century Handel enjoyed even greater fame than his contemporary Johann Sebastian Bach. Although both composers were born in 1685 within a distance shorter than 200 km of each other - Handel in Halle en Bach in Eisenach - the two never met. Bach’s solo sonatas for cello lend themselves exceptionally well to the theorbo.
The Italian violin prodigy Francesco Geminiani was born in Lucca. In 1714 he too left for London, where he gained a formidable reputation as a violinist and teacher of the violin. His best-known work is The Art of Playing on the Violin (1731), one of the earliest treatises on the technical aspects of the instrument. The aria What shall I do to show how much I love her from Purcell’s opera Dioclesian was originally set for flute and harpsichord.

Duo Stoica
Andrea Stoica, piano
Razvan Stoica, violin

Compiling a new CD is quite a job. On one hand musicians like to display their prowess and tackle less know repertoire however on the other hand the repertoire should also fit with the expectations of the listeners. This is also the case with this CD from Duo Stoica. On this CD Duo Stoica has striven to compile a CD that combines well known pieces with lesser known works in a program displaying a similar atmosphere.

Razvan performs these works in the way that only Razvan can, with fire, enthusiasm and full of life. The lesser known virtuoso works are also brought to life with the same virtuosity and passion. It is the diversity of these works combined with Razvan’s virtuoso reading that makes this CD unique.

Schnitger - Giusti - Johan Brouwer

Schnitger - Giusti - Johan Brouwer
ID: ACDBO063-2
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Baroque

There are a number of recordings of the choral partita ‘Ach wie nichtig, ach wie flüchtig’ by Georg Böhm (1666-1733), including one on the great Arp Schnitger city organ in Hamburg (1693), 57 voices, beautifully played by Stef Tuinstra. The version heard here is played on Arp Schnitger’s smallest organ positiv, 8 voices, but it offers enough variation to register the 8 variations in a diverse manner. The suite in A Minor ‘Melpomene’ by Johann Kaspar Ferdinand Fischer (1665-1746) is taken from his Musikalischer Parnassus (1738). Melpomene was the muse of song and tragedy. The stylised dances are a slow Allemande, the fast Passepied, a Rondeau, alternately a refrain and a verse, a Chaconne, variations based on a descending series of 4 tones and finally a fast Gigue. The Fantasia on the hexachord Vt Re Mi Fa Sol La by Johann Jakob Froberger (1616-1667) was already a famous work during his lifetime., Athenasius Kirchner mentions the work in his Masurgia (1646) and it was published in an autograph in 1649. The seven parts of the work bring the hexachord in various rhythms and with various second voices. In the sixth and seventh parts he adds chromatic tones, thus deftly exploiting the meantone temperament in the strong effect of dissonants and consonants. A true masterpiece. Johann Jakob Froberger (1616-1667) wrote the Tombeau on the death of the lute player Blancheroche in Paris and added the following remark: ‘fait à Paris sur la mort de Monsieur Blancheroche: lequel se joue fort lentement à la discretion sans observer aucune mesure.’ The improvisational character of the piece strongly resembles the Preludes non mésuree by Louis Couperin, whom Froberger met in Paris in 1652. A striking feature of this work is its exploitation of the meantone temperament, e.g. Froberger twice prescribes a D flat for where a C sharp is tuned, using the dissonant here as an expressive device. The Preludium is one of the great free forms in keyboard music. Of Hans Kotter (1485-1541) we hear an early example, here called Proömium in re. Kotter was a pupil of Paulus Hofhaymer, the most important ‘Organistenmacher’ of the 16th century, just as Sweelinck was in the 17th century. The original of the Giusti instrument is now in the Tagliavini collection in Bologna/Italy.
