Info zu Mozart, Händel, Bach (Remastered)
Mozart wrote the splendid Sinfonia Concertante K V 297b in l 778, during a stay in Paris. for a “Concert Spirituel” and it is without doubt the less known and the least damaged by questionable interpretations of the Sinfonie Concertanti. At this time in Paris. (as, indeed in Italy), there was a certain leaning towards the baroque Concerto Grosso with its alternating “Concertino” and “Ripieno”. As a result. the so called “Sinfonia Concertante”, with the interplay between soloists (always two or more in number) and orchestra which recalls baroque practice, enjoyed great popularity. Mozart himself wrote another wonderful “Sinfonia Concertante” for violin and viola, KV 364. The “gallante” spirit of the Mannheim school was still alive in Paris. and it was for four soloists from Mannheim that Mozart wrote the work heard on this recording, K V 297b. It was never actually performed for one of the “Concerts Spirituels” and the reason f or this remains one of the enigmas which surround many of Mozart’s works. The fate of the KV 297b is baffling: deemed to be a composition of fundamental importance by the best and most well respected wind ensembles over the course of time. not only was it not performed at the “Concerts Spirituels”, but the original manuscript actually went missing under mysterious circumstances. ...
If Bach’s “interior” cosmopolitanism and Handel’s realistic, actual aperture on the world place the two greatest craftsmen of the late musical baroque on different levels, the German masters shared, during their lives, great fame as performers. For Bach, whose music was too often misunderstood in his lifetime, this fame was his only point of contact with what is commonly know as success; for Handel, it was one of the many facets of his offering to the European public as a versatile “personality” and fashionable artist. Georg Friedrich Handel must have been an extraordinary organist judging by the eye-witness accounts of Charles Burney and Sir John Hawkins, two famous figures of eighteenth century musical England and both friends of Handel who himself enjoyed renown and success in London. Particularly impressive to the listener was the German musician’s admirable gist for extemporization, both in the “solo” parts of a concerto and in the free improvisations. Even apart from the words of praise of Hawkins and Burney, we are left with the Concertos for organ and orchestra, about twenty in all, as testimony to an art which amazed Handel’s contemporaries. This musical form, concerto for organ and orchestra, was one which, with few exceptions, was born and subsequently died with Handel. The origin of these works, which Handel himself played between acts of his Oratorios, is particular, and we can therefore attribute them to the London period, that in which the German musician received, through these Oratorios. his fame as an operatic composer. ...
It is only recently that Bachian exegesis are arriving at conclusions which, while on one hand are shown to be nearer historical truth, on the other, cannot fail to provoke a certain sense of loss in those who may still be tied (and not always through their own limited point of view) to an impression of the Maestro of Eisenach handed down through the eighteen hundreds in Germany where romanticism was strongly influenced by a very Germanic mysticism and nationalism. This “new image”, as it is currently defined, has been strongly enforced bythe late lamented Friedrich Blume and in recent years found a proud crusade in Piero Buscaroli. The latter has presented us with a more “tender” impression of Bach, sanguine and veracious which if not actually a thousand miles from the now “passé” portrait of the fervid craftsman of sound, wholly devoted to offering his wonderful “wares” “Soli Deo Gloria”, is nonetheless far-removed. Not only, therefore, was Bach a divine creator of sacred musical architecture, but a man complete his desire for a full life ever to the point of being mundane, almost courtly. Where the old image of Bach is perhaps the most sullied is in his post as “Cantor” at Leipsig: new research on the chronology of his work testifies not only that his ardent activity as a composer of sacred cantatas carne to an early end, but also that for many of these sacred works, the Passions included, Bach drew on elements from preceding compositions. ...
