The 12 fantasias for viola da gamba recorded here by gambist Robert Smith were rediscovered only in 2015. Smith terms the rediscovery an event "that viol players dreamed about," for Telemann also wrote popular works for solo violin and flute. These fantasias, although written for the same amateur market, are not really comparable to the violin and flute works. They aren't fantasias in the later sense; all but one are cast in three movements, and they're very sonata-like, with dance-like finales (although not named dances). The fantasy element seems to consist of the distinct mood each one has: sample the first movement of the Fantasia No. 3 in E minor, TWV 40:28, which is melancholy not simply because of its minor key, but because of a nifty combination of a Baroque sixth figure with a very proto-Classical emphasis on melody. For Telemann enthusiasts this album will be major news, and it's listenable for anyone, even if 12 of these fantasies at a stretch is quite a few. Resonus' church sound is too live for what was certainly chamber music. The fantasias could certainly fit into any number of Baroque programming ideas, and Smith has performed a valuable service by unearthing them.

Album Description

The 12 fantasias for viola da gamba recorded here by gambist Robert Smith were rediscovered only in 2015. Smith terms the rediscovery an event "that viol players dreamed about," for Telemann also wrote popular works for solo violin and flute. These fantasias, although written for the same amateur market, are not really comparable to the violin and flute works. They aren't fantasias in the later sense; all but one are cast in three movements, and they're very sonata-like, with dance-like finales (although not named dances). The fantasy element seems to consist of the distinct mood each one has: sample the first movement of the Fantasia No. 3 in E minor, TWV 40:28, which is melancholy not simply because of its minor key, but because of a nifty combination of a Baroque sixth figure with a very proto-Classical emphasis on melody. For Telemann enthusiasts this album will be major news, and it's listenable for anyone, even if 12 of these fantasies at a stretch is quite a few. Resonus' church sound is too live for what was certainly chamber music. The fantasias could certainly fit into any number of Baroque programming ideas, and Smith has performed a valuable service by unearthing them.

Peter Thomas in Orbit

In Germany they have their own Michel Legrand: his name is Peter Thomas! His eccentric film music left its mark on a whole generation of viewers in the 60s and 70s and since the 90s he has often been cited and sampled by young pop groups. The cult composer passed away on May 17th, 2020. We met him three years earlier, on the dawn of his 92nd birthday.

Women Composers: A Secret History

From Sappho of Mytilene to Kaija Saariaho, music history has been marked by female figures who “dared” to write music. Is creation a male privilege? Our sound museum does hold more well-known and recognised male than female composers. Yet their works are no less exciting and there is absolutely no reason for them to play second fiddle, or be ignored altogether. Below, you’ll find a defence and illustration of female composition works through eleven musical portraits.

Fabio Biondi & Europa Galante, 30 years of freedom

The Italian violinist and conductor Fabio Biondi, notably famous for his rendition of the Four Seasons by Vivaldi with his ensemble Europa Galante, is one of the musicians who actively spurns the idea of separating and compartmentalising music. We take a look back at the career of one of the most versatile and open-minded classical musicians of our time, and an essential figure of baroque violin.
