H. Biber - The Mystery Sonatas - Sonatas 1 - 15 & Passacaglia - Walter Reiter with Cordaria

H. Biber - The Mystery Sonatas - Sonatas 1 - 15 & Passacaglia - Walter Reiter with Cordaria
ID: SIGCD021
CDs: 2
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Violin

This two disc set of Heinrich von Biber's Rosary or Mystery Sonatas presents the complete set of fifteen sonatas and the concluding passacaglia which appears in the sole surviving Munich manuscript.

The sonatas each correspond to the fifteen mysteries or meditations on the life of Christ. The meditations are traditionally grouped into three groups of five; Joyful - his early life, Sorrowful - his passion; Glorious - his ressurection.

In writing the sonatas Biber uses scordatura, tuning the strings to a different set of notes for each sonata. This achieves technical feats impossible with normal tuning and results in different sonorities resulting from the varying amounts of pressure from the strings and achieving the different desired mood for each sonata. For the violinist, this involves a constant contradiction between sight and sound, for what he sees is not be what he hears!

Walter Reiter's recording of the Mystery Sonatas is the culmination of a seven year labour of love and is in his own words, is his "most powerfully artistic experience to date".

Shared Ground is a set of works by the British composer Alec Roth, featuring several poems and sung texts by the Indian writer Vikram Seth. The title piece of the same name is inspired by Seth’s poetry following a decision to buy and live in the Old Rectory in Bemerton - the former home of the 17thcentury poet and priest George Herbert. Other works on the disc expand this idea of a shared home or dwelling, with Earthrise - the reflections of Apollo astronauts on viewing the planet from orbit - and Hymn to Gaia.

To hear the interlocking version of Shared Ground and Ponticelli, programme the tracks in the following sequence: 1 - 7 - 2 - 8 - 3 - 9 - 4 - 0 - 5 - q - 6

Damocles Trio - Trio Brasileiro - VCilla-Lobos - Fernandez

Damocles Trio - Trio Brasileiro - VCilla-Lobos - Fernandez
ID: CLAVES502916-17
CDs: 2
Type: CD
Subcollection: Trio

After a first recording entirely dedicated to the Spanish composer Joaquin Turina, the Damocles Trio of New York is back at Claves with a double album once again deeply imbued with a strong Latin flavour. On the programme are trios with piano by two sons of Rio de Janeiro - Heitor Villa-Lobos and Oscar Lorenzo Fernandez. The three trios by Villa-Lobos are youthful works, written before the composer made his pivotal journey to Paris. Surprisingly, it is in these early works that he seems the least Brazilian, as if it was his later expatriation that would induce a (re)discovery of his roots. In his introduction, Etienne Barilier writes: “In Rio de Janeiro he was above all a romantic, an impressionist - and French. These youthful works might disappoint if we were to consider them from a Brazilian angle. But they are none the less rich and promising. Moreover, they allow us the pleasure of discovering the road that was gradually to lead the composer to himself.” Oscar Lorenzo Fernandez was born in 1897, ten years after Villa-Lobos. Like him, he infused his work with the folk music of his homeland. And, like him, he was first influenced by European romanticism and French impressionism, only becoming a truly “Brazilian” composer in the early 1920s. His Trio Brasileiro was written in 1924.
