From Leipzig to London - Duo Sonatas from the 18th and 20th Centuries

From Leipzig to London - Duo Sonatas from the 18th and 20th Centuries
ID: CC2013
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Oboe

The 24-page CD booklet has a 3,000 word programme note in English and German, detailing the origins of both the Bach and the 20th Century works, with a description of the performers, and many photographs.


The oboe played an important role in eighteenth-century musical society, with composers such as Handel, Vivaldi and Telemann making wide use of it as a solo, chamber and orchestral instrument. A favourite with J.S. Bach, the oboe and its family featured significantly in the composer's life in Leipzig where many of his large scale choral works were produced.

During the nineteenth century, the instrument was almost entirely relegated to the orchestra; only a handful of composers regarded it as a suitable solo instrument. However it was revived in the twentieth century by pioneers such as Léon Goossens and Janet Craxton studying, performing and teaching in London. Other players helping to reaffirm the musical capabilities of the oboe as a solo instrument included Evelyn Rothwell (Lady Barbirolli), who with her duo partner Valda Aveling (harpsichord) realized the potential of combining these two instruments. They encouraged some of England's most respected composers to use the harpsichord in duo sonata form for the first time since the eighteenth century, and this CD presents four pieces which were written for them in 1963 and 1972.

Music from the age of Louis XIV - John Kitchen, harpsichord

Music from the age of Louis XIV - John Kitchen, harpsichord
ID: DCD34109
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Harpsichord

John Kitchen continues his much-lauded series of recordings of the world-famous collections of keyboard instruments in St Cecilia's Hall - Scotland's oldest purpose-built concert hall - with a programme specially designed to highlight the unique qualities of the 1755 double-manual harpsichord by Luigi Baillon.

Built in Cyteux, Burgundy, it has a very different sound from Parisian instruments of the time; cleaner and brighter in tone, it is the perfect vehicle for Kitchen's subtly nuanced playing, which brings the sophistication of the period to new life.

The familiarity born of Kitchen's daily experience with the Edinburgh collections and their setting shines through these performances.

J.A. Benda - Harpsichord Concertos -  V. Luks, harpsichord - Collegium 1704
ID: F10133
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Classical Period
Subcollection: Harpsichord

Václav Luks, harpsichord

Collegium 1704:
Lenka Koubková, violin
Jan Hádek, violin

Libor Mašek, violoncello


“But surely you know that of all Lutheran composers Benda is my favourite,” W.A.Mozart wrote to his father from Mannheim…
Educated by the intellectual Lutheran milieu and profoundly affected first by the French Enlightenment and then, in particular, by the artistic rebellion of the “Sturm und Drang,” Benda was a typical child of his times. His musical language crystallized into its supreme form in the 1770s, a time when he also wrote the majority of his most important works including the harpsichord concertos.
