The Gerdin Manuscript: Uppsala 1758

Thomas Leininger

Klassiek - Verschenen op 19 november 2021 | Pan Classics

Booklet
A French title, Italian repertoire, a Swedish manuscript... The manuscript of a certain "Georg Gerdin" provides insight into the ramified travel routes of good music in the 18th century. Nothing is known about Mr. Gerdin himself, only that he signed his manuscript "A Upsale le 8 d'Aout 1758". In his manuscript, Gerdin compiled four sonatas by Pietro Castrucci and two by the now largely forgotten Francesco Geminiani, probably drawing on an edition printed almost fifty years earlier in Amsterdam and London, which had adapted the sonatas originally conceived for violin for the recorder. The recorder player Tabea Schwartz presents these exciting and extremely virtuosic sonatas of the highest quality in a Swedish "reading". Her congenial accompanist, the harpsichordist Thomas Leininger, combines them with short miniatures on well-known English melodies from a collection published in Sweden around 1770 by an unknown composer named Frederick Nussen. © Pan Classics

Schubert & Weber: Vocal Works

Hanno Müller-Brachmann

Klassiek - Verschenen op 1 oktober 2021 | Pan Classics

Hi-Res Booklet
Schubert's publisher Tobias Haslinger published fourteen songs under the title "Schwanengesang" one year after the composer’s death. Schubert had written them down in rapid succession shortly before his death, which indicates that they were partly conceived as a song cycle. The German bass-baritone Hanno Müller-Brachmann was a member of the ensemble of the Berlin State Opera from 1998 until 2011 and has also appeared at the Bayerische, Hamburgische and Wiener Staatsoper and San Francisco Opera. He has sung with the London, Vienna and Berlin Philharmonic Orchestras, the Berlin and Dresden Staatskapelle, Orchestra National de France, and the Boston, Chicago and Los Angeles Symphony Orchestras under conductors including Thielemann, Haitink, Barenboim, Welser-Möst, Harnoncourt, Luisi, von Dohnányi, Nelsons and Gardiner. Hanno. In addition to concert and opera, Hanno Müller-Brachmann has a great passion for the Lied. He has given recitals in Berlin, Graz, Amsterdam, Hamburg, Paris and Lausanne, at London’s Wigmore Hall, the Schwarzenberg Schubertiade, Berlin Festwochen and the Edinburgh Festival, among others. © Pan Classics

Torri: Trastulli & Arias – Entertainment for the Bavarian Court

Musica Fiorita

Klassiek - Verschenen op 17 september 2021 | Pan Classics

Booklet
Pietro Torri's (1650-1737) life and work are closely connected with the Bavarian Elector Max Emanuel, whom he served for almost half a century. The monarch loved a pompous court with elaborately staged operas and festive cantatas. Torri provided the music, composing almost 20 operas and a large number of sacred and secular works for the Bavarian court, making Munich one of the great musical centers north of the Alps alongside Vienna. A special feature of Torri's oeuvre are his Trastulli (literally: time-wasting, playfulness) - a collection of 60 Italian arias with partly obligatory virtuoso instrumental interludes for evening entertainment in private court circles. Daniela Dolci has compiled a selection of Trastulli into a pastiche and combined it with virtuoso opera arias by Torri. The program gives a wonderful insight into the work of the opera and vocal composer Pietro Torri. © Pan Classics

Telemann: 12 Fantasias for Solo Violin, TWV 40:14-25

Gunar Letzbor

Klassiek - Verschenen op 7 mei 2021 | Pan Classics

Hi-Res Booklet
Alongside his success directing the ensemble Ars Antiqua Austria, Gunar Letzbor has not let up on demonstrating his talents as a violinist. After the recording of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Sonatas and Partitas the 12 Fantasias by Georg Philipp Telemann present him again completely “a solo”. Telemann’s Fantasias for Solo Violin are reflections both of his full maturity as a composer and of being highly proficient violinist himself, with the exceptionally prolific and enormously busy composer publishing sets of fantasias for solo instruments – flute, viola da gamba as well as violin – without basso continuo in Hamburg in the 1730s. The 12 Fantasias recorded here are written for an unaccompanied instrument and manage to embrace both the long established style for polyphony in German violin music – with fugues and multi-part writing for the violin – and more modern trends – galanterien and Italian sonata and concerto influences. Gunar Letzbor plays a Sebastian Klotz violin from the eighteenth century. © Pan Classics

Arias for the Emperor

Biber Consort

Opera - Verschenen op 7 mei 2021 | Pan Classics

Hi-Res Booklet
Johann Joseph Fux (ca. 1660–1741), composer and Kapellmeister at the Viennese Imperial Court, is primarily known for his church and instrumental works. It has been almost completely forgotten that during his lifetime he was also a highly regarded composer for the stage; his operas and oratorios undeservedly relegated to the shadows. This present recording with the young Austrian soprano Maria Ladurner is therefore more than welcome, giving a somewhat deeper insight into the composer’s stage works. It includes a total of nine arias for soprano, some with their accompanying recitatives, taken from operas and oratorios written between 1708 and 1728, a time when music at the Viennese Imperial Court was at its absolute peak. The focus on soprano arias also intends to draw attention to the singers employed at the Viennese Imperial Court – Maria Landini-Conti, Regina Schoonians, Kunigunda Sutter, Faustina Bordoni and Ursula Theresia Holzhauser, some of the outstanding artists of their time. © Pan Classics

The Royal Chapel of Madrid: Sacred Music After the Great Fire of 1734

Maria Espada

Klassiek - Verschenen op 7 mei 2021 | Pan Classics

Booklet
In the history of Spanish monarchy, the Royal Chapel is a fundamental entity for the establishment and dissemination of political and religious doctrine. It constitutes the heart of religious life centered around the kings. In the Royal Chapel, liturgical music plays an essential role as a means of legitimation of the catholic monarchy´s divine origin. In the 18th century, the life of the Spanish court was affected by the fire that razed the Real Alcazar on Christmas Eve of 1734, which also meant the destruction of the musical archive. The then maestro de música Francesco Corselli (1705-1778) had to face the challenge of reconstituting the archive and to provide the music needed for the celebration of liturgical functions, along with other musicians belonging to the institution. With this recording, music that was formerly exclusively intended for royalty is uncovered for the first time. © Pan Classics

A Joyful Brotherhood

Pablo Márquez

Kamermuziek - Verschenen op 16 april 2021 | Pan Classics

Hi-Res Booklet
This recording documents a remarkable musical friendship in Vienna at the beginning of the 19th century. Mauro Giuliani (1781-1829), a native of the vicinity of Naples, had come to the capital of the Habsburg Empire at a young age and quickly gained a reputation as a virtuoso guitarist on the Viennese scene. For further projects, he made contact with two of the most famous musicians of his time who also lived in Vienna: the two pianists Johann Nepomuk Hummel (1778-1837) and Ignaz Moscheles (1794 1870). The result of the fruitful collaboration of the three virtuosos are potpourris and duets for guitar and fortepiano that highlighted their unique playing and thrilled the discerning Viennese audience. © Pan Classics

Galuppi: Jahel

Musica Fiorita

Klassiek - Verschenen op 19 maart 2021 | Pan Classics

Booklet
Venice's four famous orphanages for girls, the Ospedali, were, along with St Mark's Basilica, the musical centers of the city and a European-wide attraction for musicians and travellers. Famous teachers such as Vivaldi, Hasse, Porpora, Legrenzi, Rosenmüller and many others provided the girls with high-quality musical training and programmes of performances. Baldassare Galuppi, who was central to the development of Italian opera, was maestro di coro at the Ospedale di San Lazzaro dei Mendicanti for twelve years, for which he created the oratorio Jahel in 1747 and performed it there. The oratorio is about the biblical heroine Jahel, whose murder of the army leader Sisara leads to the liberation of Israel. The music is pointed with all its might towards the Viennese classical period, and the experienced Galuppi opera composer can be felt in every note. He wrote the arias for the various soloists of the Ospedale, thus demonstrating the high level of singing that prevailed there. The Musica Fiorita ensemble around harpsichordist Daniela Dolci, together with the Mädchenkantorei Basel and young soloists from the Basel scene, present with Galuppi's Jahel an elaborate repertoire excavation of the first order in exemplary interpretation. © Pan Classics

A Life for the Opera

Silvia Frigato

Klassiek - Verschenen op 5 februari 2021 | Pan Classics

Booklet
Agostino Steffani is one of those multi-talented personalities one often encounters in the baroque era. He was a man of the church who made it as far as titular bishop and mediator between Pope and Emperor. He was a much-travelled diplomat and politician, as well, who held high state offices up to minister, and he was a composer who wrote operas for the courts in Munich, Hanover and Düsseldorf. The Italian soprano Silvia Frigato and the Castor Ensemble trace the stages of Steffani's life through a selection of arias from his operas. © Pan Classics

Verdelot: Madrigals for 4 Voices

Profeti Della Quinta

Klassiek - Verschenen op 15 januari 2021 | Pan Classics

Booklet Onderscheidingen Diapason d'or
Philippe Verdelot played a very important role in the development of the madrigal during the Italian Renaissance. Born in France, he probably moved to Italy at a young age. From 1522 onwards, he held the most important positions in church music in Florence – first he was maestro di capella at the Baptistery of Florence Cathedral, and a year later also at the Cathedral itself. After 1530, with the riots surrounding the expulsion of the Medici family and the siege of the city, all biographical traces are lost, and no works created after these events seem to have survived. In the years before, however, Verdelot had initiated important musical developments with his madrigals, which at that time were the most published in Italy. The Ensemble Profeti della Quinta presents a selection of four-part madrigals from an anthology published posthumously (1540, 1565). A special feature of their performance is that each singer reads from the originally notated single voice – unlike in a modern score with parts notated one above the other. The musicians must therefore listen to each other much more closely and be able to react spontaneously. This spontaneity can be felt throughout the recording, and takes the listener to the beginnings of the Italian madrigal in a very intense way. © Pan Classics
