Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music

Philippus (or Philippe) de Monte and Roland de Lassus are considered the two central figures in the golden age of Franco-Flemish polyphony that originated at the beginning of the 15th century and that determined stylistic trends in Western Europe for nearly two centuries. De Monte was Kapellmeister at the Habsburg court in Vienna from 1568 until his death in 1603 (at the very respectable age of 82); before that he had made a name for himself in Italy and in England - where he met William Byrd but was unhappy working at the court. Extremely prolific, his madrigals are characterized not only by an exquisite mastery of polyphony but also by a special attention to the sung text - he was a disciple of the humanist movement and put particular emphasis on the rhetorical resources of language. His sacred music, also of great import, consists primarily of masses and motets and is comparable to Palastrina’s music. His some 250 motets were written in a style that could be described as typically “Renaissance”. His chansons, fewer in number, took their texts from brilliant Pierre de Ronsard, the preferred poet of the time. The Ensemble Orlando from Fribourg under the direction of Laurent Gendre on their first recording for Claves render homage to all the contrasting facets of Philippus de Monte’s works. Richly documented, the booklet was prepared under the direction of Ignace Bossuyt, professor in Louvain and renowned expert for Franco-Flemish polyphonic music.

Mozart - The Oboe in Mozart Chamber Music

Mozart - The Oboe in Mozart Chamber Music
ID: CC2007
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Oboe

The CD booklet contains a 2,000-word essay by Diana Ambache on the music in the CD in English, Italian and German. The photos include more from the K452 recording session and two entries from Mozart's Catalogue written in his own hand.

Human feeling is always at the centre of Mozart's music, and the collection of oboe works here illustrates this with colour and variety. As ever, Mozart excpresses everything from exuberant joy to deep melancholy, with a profound understanding of the expression of emotion. His paradoxes intrigue us; his humour entertains us; he seduces us with his beauty -and the oboe is an excellent vehicle for all this. The five works on the CD include three originally written for the oboe and two fine adaptations.

The year 1781 was an eventful one for Mozart. As well as having the première of 'Idomineo' on his 25th birthday, he also wrote the Oboe Quartet and Sonata featured here, as well as the Concerto for Two Pianos, K365. In May he had the now famous row with his patron Archbishop Collerado, which resulted in his move to Vienna and a new life as a freelance musician.

Ludwig Thuille - Piano Quintets in E flat Major and G minor The Falk Quartet with Tomer Lev, London Conchord Ensemble

Ludwig Thuille - Piano Quintets in E flat Major and G minor The Falk Quartet with Tomer Lev, London Conchord Ensemble
ID: CHRCD001_2

Type: CD
Subcollection: Chamber Ensemble

This double-disc set brought both a record label and a composer new to my ears. Thuille, who lived until 1907, was from the Tyrol and a close friend on and off of Richard Strauss. He was a pupil of Rheinberger and as a pedagogue among his own students were Ernest Bloch and Hermann Abendroth. He was a prolific though rather conservative composer and for a time was known for his operas. However, his small fame now lies mainly with his chamber music, as well as a piano concerto and a symphony. His book on harmony was a standard for many years and constitutes his standing in some musical circles.

All four of these chamber works are absolutely gorgeous, full of lovely melody and an almost ecstatic beauty. Thuille’s influences in the Sextet may recall Brahms or even Wagner at various points. There aren’t many good works for wind quintet and piano, and this one should be heard much more frequently. The French horn is very predominant, as it is in much of Richard Strauss’ music. The piano is also given an important role that sometimes expands to almost piano concerto proportions. The Larghetto second movement of the four is especially lovely, with an autumnal sort of sound that reminds one of Brahms. The Vivace finale is a speedy summing-up of the sextet, with already-heard thematic material going from instrument to instrument, and with a good humor thruout.

In the more conservative Trio one may hear influences of Borodin or Franck. Though it has some passages suffused with sorrow, the prevailing mood - especially by the fourth movement finale - is one of joy and good feeling. The two Piano Quintets were composed 21 years apart, the G minor being the early one, dating from 1880. It has a cyclic design in its three short movements, with a prayer-like central slow movement sounding like Brahms. The 1901 Piano Quintet Op. 20 is regarded as the best-known of all of Thuille’s chamber works. Almost 45 minutes in length, it balances a rather traditional approach with plenty of post-Wagnerian chromaticism. Thruout the four-movement work one hears influences of a Richard Strauss-like waltz feeling. The Adagio second movement begins with a chorale-like passage which may remind listeners of Bruckner, as it builds to a massive architectural central climax. The finale brings together some of the previous themes in a hymn-like setting, similar to many of Thuille’s works of this period.

The performances on both CDs are first rate, as are the sonics. This is one of the most enjoyable chamber music collections I have heard in years.
