With playful and inventive melodies, The Flat Consort is full of whimsy, romance and flair. There’s no shadow of a doubt that this is the highlight of the musical catalogue of Matthew Locke, the great master of English Baroque and predecessor of Henry Purcell (whose musical ventures he likely encouraged). Trained at Exeter Cathedral, the young Locke carved his name into the stone surrounding the organ. This graffiti is still visible today and is now proudly displayed on the cover of this recording by Fretwork, a consort of viols that celebrates its thirty-fifth anniversary with this new album recorded in Cambridge in May 2021.

As a composer for the stage, Matthew Locke wrote ‘masques’, a traditional type of English entertainment that included dance, poetry and song to celebrate special events. He also worked with the most prominent figures in London's musical society. In addition to his dramatic music, he also left behind several volumes of sacred music and music for viol consorts.

The five suites of Flat Consort “for my cousin Kemble,” as the creator called it, employ a varied instrumentation that includes not only various viols, but also the harpsichord (Silas Wollston), archlute and theorbo (David Miller). The Flat Consort represents both the grand finale and the pinnacle of a great tradition born one hundred and fifty years earlier.

Still little known and rarely recorded, this album punctuates these suites with the four austere and unaccompanied Duos pour deux violes de gambe, all of which ooze the bleak melancholy of the late 17th century. Hopefully, this exemplary recording will mark the beginning of a resurgence of Matthew Locke's consort works. © François Hudry/Qobuz

Hans-Christoph Rademann - Eine Herzensangelegenheit

Der Dirigent Hans-Christoph Rademann über die Musik von Heinrich Schütz

10 Fragen an Günter Hänssler

Der Geschichte von hänssler CLASSIC liegt zunächst eine Verlagsgeschichte zugrunde. Friedrich Hänssler senior hatte das Lied “Auf Adlers Flügeln getragen” geschrieben und suchte vergeblich nach einem Musikverlag, was ihn dazu veranlasste, selbst einen zu gründen. Günter Hänssler, Erbe dieses Familienunternehmens, erzählt uns, was die Labels hänssler CLASSIC und PROFIL besonders prägten und welche Künstler-Kollaborationen zum besonderen Klang beigetragen haben.

Clara Schumann, zwischen Künstlerin und Ehefrau

Sie war die erfolgreichste Pianistin des 19. Jahrhunderts, musikalisches Wunderkind, Klavierpädagogin, Komponistin - und doch ist sie meist als “Frau von Robert Schumann” bekannt. Clara Schumann setzte mit ihrer Virtuosität und Musik neue Maßstäbe und zählt heutzutage zu den wichtigsten Vertreterinnen der Romantik. Nichtsdestotrotz finden ihre Werke noch immer weit weniger Aufmerksamkeit als die ihrer Zeitgenossen und vor allem als die ihres Mannes. Wir möchten einen Blick auf das Leben und Werk von Clara Wieck/Schumann werfen - als Künstlerin, Komponistin und vor allem eines: als Frau, die ihrer Zeit voraus war.
