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.

Music from the Court of Johann Wilhelm van der Pfalz, duke of Jülich-Berg

Johann Wilhelm of Pfalz-Neuburg was born April 19, 1658 in Düsseldorf. His grandfather, Wolfgang Wilhelm of Pfalz-Neuburg, was given the important dukedom of Jülich-Berg at the beginning of the 17th Century. His father, Philipp Wilhelm of Pfalz-Neuburg, ensured a complete education for his son, who, even at an early age, showed a significant interest in the arts. Music and the Fine Arts became Johann Wilhelm’s dominant passions.
He married archduchess Maria Anna Josepha of Austria in 1678, which gained him access to the rich musical culture of the Emperor’s court. On August 1, 1679, he became the regent of the dukedom of Jülich-Berg with capitals in both Jülich and Düsseldorf. Düsseldorf was the focal point of his reign; he helped develop it to become a center of art and culture. After the death of his first wife in 1689, Johann Wilhelm married Anna Maria Luisa de Medici in 1691. After the death of his father in 1690 he became the Elector of Pfalz and one of the distinguished leaders of his era. Johann Wilhelm shared his passion for art and music with his new wife. The opera performances during Carnival in Düsseldorf in the years following 1690 became legendary. The court orchestra, which Johann Wilhelm formed, could compete with Imperial standards, and was admired by contemporaries in 1711 at the Imperial Election in Frankfurt. In the words of a guest of the Düsseldorf court, “[the orchestra was] a felicitous lot of fine artists.” The amount of money Johann Wilhelm invested in courtly show was not atypical for its time, but he did receive criticism from his fellow Electors. Johann Wilhelm dreamt of being named a King.

Viola Altra - Màtè Szücs
ID: ACDHH046-2
CDs: 1
Type: SACD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Viola

Since the beginning of musical history, the violin has played the leading role, while the viola has remained in an accompanying one. The viola has a rich and warm sound, and so is often considered as the ideal chamber music instrument. The larger size of the viola means that the distance the fi ngers have to cover between the notes is greater and therefore the margin of error is increased. Considering this difference, it is of course easier to play virtuosic passages on the violin. But should the viola only be destined to play chamber music? Several violists in the course of history have wrestled with this matter. Having asked himself this question for a few years, Màtè Szücs realises his own vision with this CD.

G. F. Handel - Concerti Grossi, Opus 3 - Il Concerto Barocco
ID: ACDHJ039-2
CDs: 1
Type: SACD
Collection: Baroque
Subcollection: Chamber Ensemble

George Frideric Handel (1685-1759) was a practical composer. He believed in recycling: if he once wrote a rather good piece, he used it again elsewhere. Of the compositions entitled Concerti Grossi, Opus 3 (1734), only the first was originally conceived as a concerto grosso. The other five are compilations of movements written years before, with a few new movements added. Opus 3, therefore, could be described as an environmentally friendly compilation of 60% recycled and 40% new material. The publication contains a wonderful variety of texture and colour, and is full of contrasting emotions. The individual concertos feature different instrumentations - pairs of oboes, recorders, cellos, violins and bassoons all make an appearance, as well as solo violin, oboe, flute and organ.
