Michele Benuzzi: Hamburg 1705 - Eighteenth-century works for harpsichod

Michele Benuzzi: Hamburg 1705 - Eighteenth-century works for harpsichod
ID: LIR021
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Harpsichord

A recording featuring some of the finest works to emerge from the musical society of early 18th-century Hamburg, including some Handel ‘favourites’, Mattheson’s delightful 3rd suite, and a rare chance to hear the work of Graupner, incredibly prolific in his output, but not yet achieving the recognition that he deserves. The Partita on this disc demonstrates admirably how well his works sit alongside those of his more famous contemporaries.

Michele Benuzzi studied harpsichord with Ottavio Dantone and obtained the harpsichord Performing Diploma at the Royal College of Music in London. He is noted for the intelligence and sensitivity of his interpretations, and for the extraordinary tonal qualities he obtains from the harpsichord.

The Galeazzi Ensemble: Haydn Revisited

The Galeazzi Ensemble: Haydn Revisited
ID: LIR019
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Quartet

Following the success of their two previous CDs on LIR, “The Age of Elegance” and “Views of Vienna”, the Galeazzi Ensemble continue their exploration of the classical flute quartet. J.A.Schmittbauer, about whom little is known, cleverly published his quartet under the name of his more prolific colleague, Haydn, to ensure his better sales. It is teamed on this CD with 2 of Haydn’s own quartets, not originally written for flute, but well-suited to the instrument in the flexible classical tradition, and one of his string trios.

The Galeazzi Ensemble was formed in 1995 in order to explore Classical and Early Romantic chamber music using instruments of the period and, as well as performing works from the standard repertoire, it aims to introduce many neglected works to today’s audiences. The group takes its name from the composer and theorist Francesco Galeazzi (1758-1818). Better known today for his theoretical writings, Galeazzi’s most influential work was a two volumed treatise entitled Elementi teorico-pratici di musica (1791-6).

The Galeazzi Ensemble - The Age of Elegance, (18th century music for flute & strings)

 The Galeazzi Ensemble - The Age of Elegance, (18th century music for flute & strings)
ID: LIR001
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Flute

This is the first disc recorded by the Galeazzi Ensemble and is a perfect example of a CD that presents the familiar and the unfamiliar. The works recorded are all flute quartets - an incredibly popular medium of the time - and the group have chosen a selection which spans the last 30 years of the 18th century, beginning with Haydn, and working through those composers who would have been his friends and associates.

There is some mystery surrounding one of the works on the disc - the prelude supposedly by Mozart to team with the arrangement of the elder Bach's Fugue in D minor. Rather like some of the movements from the later Requiem, the work has all the characteristics of Mozart, but there seems to be a little doubt over its authenticity.

All the composers featured on this discs were incredibly prolific in their composing, whilst juggling several other balls. J.C.Bach, the "London Bach", was music master to the Royal Family, his role there encompassing conducting, composing, concert management, and accompanying the family at the keyboard. Hoffmeister ran a publishing house, producing works by the likes of Haydn, Beethoven and Mozart, and Pleyel's career is even more astounding since he was something of an entrepreneur, opening a music shop, a publishing house and a piano factory. Despite their extra-curricular activities, these are fine works, and are well placed with works by their more well-known contemporaries and friends, Haydn and Mozart.

Kartuli Musika • Music from Georgia by Nassidse, Loboda, Zinzadse

Kartuli Musika • Music from Georgia by Nassidse, Loboda, Zinzadse
ID: GMCD7279
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Chamber Orchestra

Sulchan Nassidse was a pianist, teacher of composition and, from 1962 onwards, a board member of the Georgian Orchestral Association. He ranks among the best-known Georgian composers. His creativity is expressed mainly through symphonic works, with compositions including three symphonies, two piano concertos, a violin concerto and two string quartets.
Nassidse composed his Chamber Symphony No. 3 in 1969, and dedicated it to the Georgian Chamber Orchestra. This work in one movement shows a fascinating intensity of expression and richness of tone colour, with its rapid changes of mood and a tonality suggestive of the Orient. The work tells a tale full of mysterious poetry and magic, in which an underlying mechanical menace and cries of anguish repeatedly break through to the surface. The conclusion remains open, unresolved and unclear. The soft dialogue between two solo violins suddenly falls silent. Nassidse’s unsurpassed feeling for tension and drama, coupled with a virtuosity of tonal expression which makes the highest possible demands upon the technical capabilities of stringed instruments, have produced a work in which the conventional symphonic framework is replaced by a linear, narrative structure.
IgorLoboda Our lives are multi-faceted. We experience a combination of passions, forces of nature, victories and defeats, love and hate. In this chaotic world, only one factor remains constant: time. Time moves on at a constant speed, and nothing or nobody can halt its progress.
Sulchan Fjodorowitsch Zinzadse, one of the most significant Georgian composers, began his musical career in the 1940s as a cellist with the Georgian State String Quartet. One of his earliest compositions, a collection of miniatures for string quartet based upon Georgian folk songs, was an immediate success. Although Zinzadse also composed a number of operas, ballets, symphonies and concertos, his compositions for string quartet and chamber orchestra remain his most significant works, and represent an important contribution to Georgian musical tradition. Zinzadse’s Miniatures for String Quartet (arranged for string orchestra by the composer himself) were written at various times in the composer’s career. They include transcriptions and arrangements of Georgian folk melodies, in which Zinzadse skilfully and impressively succeeds in transposing the contrasting nature of folk songs into the medium of the string quartet. Whether in lyrical pieces such as “Indi Mindi” and “Suliko”, the humorous “Zoli gamididgula” (the nagging wife), the highly effective “Satschidao” (a melody used to accompany sporting contests) or the “Mtskemsuri” (shepherds’ dance) - the composer has produced masterpieces which, whilst rich in tone colour, remain true to the simplicity of the folk tradition.
