Subcollection: Oboe

Recorded: St Paul’s Boy’s School, Hammersmith, London 12-13 June 2004

The composer Max Kuhn was born on 28 April 1896 - the year of Bruckner’s death, the year before Brahms’s - in Zurich, and he lived almost the whole of a long and active life in the vicinity of the city. After his school education he studied piano with Peter Fassbänder and organ with Fridolin Roth, and then from 1920 to 1921 was a student at the Zurich Conservatory. The influence of Ferruccio Busoni, who had spent a self-imposed exile in Zurich during World War I, was palpable at the Conservatory at this time. Kuhn studied conducting with Volkmar Andreae, a close friend of Busoni; counterpoint with Busoni’s pupil Philipp Jarnach; and composition with another Busoni pupil, Reinhold Laquai. Kuhn then spent five years, until 1926, in further studies in Vienna - becoming a pupil of Josef Hoffmann for piano, and of Richard Stöhr for counterpoint. By the time he returned to Switzerland, therefore, Kuhn was a highly qualified musician in several spheres; even so he went on in 1929 to take some conducting lessons from Felix Weingartner in Basel.

From the 1920s onward, Kuhn was based in Küsnacht, near Zurich, as organist and choir director at the Catholic church. In 1928 he founded the ‘Choir for modern Music’ - later to be known, under its subsequent conductor, as the Zurich Chamber Choir. In 1940 Max Kuhn helped to found the Mozart Society of Zurich, and he remained working in Zurich for many years as a conductor, pianist and organist. He also taught piano and music theory, not only privately but, from 1956 to until his retirement in 1972, at the Zurich Music Academy. Kuhn was spoken of as one of those Swiss composers who made a bridge in their work between Spanish and Swiss music, and between the Protestant North and the Mediterranean warmth of the South. He certainly had an attachment to the music of Spain, and especially the Canary Islands, which gave rise to his Piano Variations (1967) and the piano concerto entitled Concierto de Tenerife (1962), both available on other Guild recordings. In 1991, at the venerable age of 94, Kuhn moved to Ascona, on the Swiss shore of Lake Maggiore, where he died three years later.

According to the noted Swiss critic Willi Schuh, Kuhn’s was a ‘pronouncedly lyrical talent’, with songs and choral music occupying a place of importance in his output. Nevertheless he composed prolifically in a wide spectrum of genres, from operas to small piano pieces. Chris Walton has remarked that Kuhn ‘was rooted in the Swiss Protestant tradition’, but his musical language is an urbane synthesis of several 20th-century tendencies. Kuhn himself, in 1973, described the evolution of his musical language thus: ‘Before 1921, my works were rooted in traditional influences (Bach, Schubert, Wolf). The confrontation with Impressionism and the Second Viennese School and my encounter with Hindemith broadened my means of expression in matters of harmony and formal technique, and enabled me to go my own way (the use of extended tonality, polyphony, and linear counterpoint that takes into account the extended harmonic context)’.

Johann Friedrich Fasch - Sonatas for Oboe

Johann Friedrich Fasch - Sonatas for Oboe
ID: CP030
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Baroque
Subcollection: Oboe

Johann Friedrich Fasch is primarily known to modern audiences through a few trumpet pieces that have served for weddings and other assertions of respectability like public television programs. But, as with his somewhat older contemporary Telemann, he left a great deal of music, and it may be that he has been underestimated simply because performers haven't known where to begin with it. This 1987 disc of oboe and bassoon music from the former East Germany, with performers working from manuscripts held in the Saxon State Library in Dresden (Fasch's longtime residence), reveals a composer whose music blended old and new. The overall mood is a bit less free and easy than with Telemann, and there's a facility of contrapuntal writing, erupting at times into full-fledged fugues, which can make you think you're listening to Bach. But Fasch's emphasis on melody points to the influence of Vivaldi, and some of the music even suggests Fasch as a forerunner of the Classical style. Sample the Sonata in F major for two oboes and two bassoons, without continuo (tracks 18-21) -- it's delightful from start to finish. Fasch's part-writing, with the two bassoons gracefully filling the dual role of harmonic support and full member of the texture, is the height of elegance. And the slightly dancelike, pastoral mood of the work tells us that the divertimenti and Feldparthien of the mid century were not far away; indeed it wouldn't be a surprise if music like this turned out to have been known by the young Haydn. The performances are technically confident and perfectly attuned to Fasch's slightly sober idiom, but those new to historical instruments should note that the Baroque oboe, even more so than other early instruments, takes some getting used to. The situation is not helped by the Communist-era sound, which puts the emphasis on all the wrong places (including the group breathtaking at the beginning of each movement), but this is nevertheless a worthwhile disc for Baroque collections.

Shchedrin - The Sealed Angel

Shchedrin - The Sealed Angel
ID: DCD34067
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Choir

Two of Britain's finest young choirs join forces and cross a continent to take on the sublime expressiveness of Rodion Shchedrin's 'Russian liturgy', an astonishing statement of faith composed in the early days of perestroika. Shchedrin's choral tableaux juxtapose tenderness with bracing sonic impact, and are shadowed throughout by the plangent voice of a solo oboe representing the soul of the Russian people.This ground-breaking choral partnership committed the work to disc following acclaimed UK première concert performances at the Spitalfields and Oundle festivals in the summer of 2008. In 1992 President Boris Yeltsin awarded Shchedrin the Russian State Prize for The Sealed Angel.

BACH - SCHNITTKE - Dmitri Bulgakov & Maria Alikhanova
ID: QTZ2083
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Chamber Orchestra

J.S. Bach and Alfred Schnittke may not immediately strike the listener as obvious musical companions. Yet there are numerous important parallels between the works on this disc. Alfred Schnittke was fascinated with musical heritage; he appropriated earlier styles and musical quotations to create his own unique brand of ‘polystylism’. In the case of his celebrated Concerto Grosso No.1 it was, of course the music of the Baroque on which he relied most heavily. What better way to illuminate Baroque pastiche, than by recording it alongside a work from that era.
