For this new recording of Vivaldi's Four Seasons, Jordi Savall conducts an all-female orchestra, as Vivaldi did in his time at the Ospedale della Pieta in Venice. The soloist Alfia Bakieva is a violinist of Tatar origin currently living in Salzburg, Austria. She is a multi-instrumentalist, particularly in the field of folk music, playing violin, folk fiddle, kyl- kobiz, ghizzhak and similar instruments. She studied Baroque violin with Enrico Onofri (Palermo Conservatory) and Hiro Kurosaki (Mozarteum University), focusing on historically informed performance practices in the Renaissance, Baroque, Classical and Romantic repertoires.

Beautiful, flawless performance by Kenneth Gilbert of a hitherto unknown work, one that deserves far more promimence in the body of Baroque keyboard music that is performed, recorded, and heard today. While there have been numerous recordings of the opera ballet itself, hearing the harpsichord transcriptions is a rare treasure trove.

The tune known as 'La Folia' has fascinated many composers since the seventeenth century. Portuguese in origin, the word means 'mad' or 'empty-headed' and until the 1670s it indicated a fast and noisy dance in which the participants seemed to be 'out of their minds'. By the end of the century a new, slower form had developed which threw the accent from the first beat on to the second every other bar and slightly adjusted the harmonic structure to form the perfect symmetry which inspired Corelli to use it in the twelfth of his Violin Sonatas, Op 5. That famous work further inspired Vivaldi, C P E Bach, Alessandro Scarlatti and other composers to write variations on 'La Folia'—including even Rachmaninov (though his 'Variations on a theme of Corelli' seem to indicate that he thought the tune was by that composer).

This is a unique collection of largely unknown compositions of the Bach family, the largest and most incredibly talented musical family of all time. For nearly two hundred years, the Bach family dedicated themselves to singing God’s praises in music. Helmuth Rilling, who has made the works of J S Bach and his family his life work, performs these pieces with delicacy, energy and intelligence.

It's a fairly well known fact that Bach had a keen interest in music of his musical ancestors as well as his contemporaries. His library contained music of other German composers as well as music from France and Italy. Among the composers whose music found a home on Bach's shelves were Antonio Vivaldi, Christoph Graupner, and Johann Friedrich Fasch (1688-1758). Whether or not Bach ever performed this music with his Collegium Musicum at Zimmermann's Coffee House in Leipzig is unknown, but Bach thought enough of the music of these and other composers to seek it out and collect it.

Neben Alfrerd Brendel, Friedrich Gulda und Paul Badura Skoda zählt auch Jörg Demus zu den Stars in der Reihe berühmter Wiener Pianisten. Der Österreicher wurde von den Klavier-Ikonen Yves Nat, Wilhelm Kempff, Walter Gieseking und Edwin Fischer unterrichtet und geprägt. Demus hat hat sich als kongenialer Liedbegleiter Fischer-Dieskaus ebenso einen Namen gemacht wie als herausragender Schumann-Interpret. Er gehört zur ersten Generation von Pianisten, die sich intensiv mit historisch-informierter Aufführungspraxis auseinandersetzten. Seit den 1960er Jahren hat er hier Pionierarbeit geleistet. Neben dem Repertoire der Wiener Klassik und der Romantik hatte er eine starke Affinität zum Barock.

“It was with Wanda Landowska on the harpsichord, on an old black record, that I first heard the sonatas of Domenico Scarlatti. My favourites were those that showed some Spanish influence: that rugged pride, those implacable rhythms, that mad vitality, what splendour! I have chosen mostly sonatas that are joyful or humorous in character, though among them I have slipped two little masterpieces of miraculous simplicity (K32, K40) as well as a few compelling meditations (K8, K69, K144). Wandering from nostalgia to sorrow, as though improvised, these last, void of any pathos, are yet bathed in the radiant beauty of the sunny climes of Italy and Spain.” Alice Ader

In the early 1670s, soon after Venetian opera became established in Naples, a series of comic figures began to inhabit secular but also sacred operas. These stock characters included the Neapolitan, the Calabrian and the Boy, and all three plus a fourth, ‘The Spaniard’, appear in a comic intermezzo inserted in the 1673 opera Il disperato innocente by the little-known Francesco Antonio Boero. This is the oldest surviving Neapolitan comic intermezzo, and, along with its Prologue, seems to have been written by other authors. This video preserves a historically informed performance given by Antonio Florio with Pino De Vittorio that explores the tradition of the intermezzo in 17th century plots.

Ein glückliches Leben führte sie nicht, die Markgräfin Wilhelmine (1709-1758) von Bayreuth. Als Kind wurde sie von einer geradezu bösartigen Gouvernante gepeinigt und hatte Wutausbrüche ihres Vaters, dem Soldatenkönig Friedrich Wilhelm I., über sich ergehen zu lassen, der so gar nichts vom weiblichen Geschlecht hielt. Wenngleich auch Wilhelmine wie eine Gefangene gehalten wurde, so traf es ihren geliebten Bruder, Kronprinz Friedrich, besonders hart: von seinem Vater verachtet, hatte er sogar unter Festungshaft zu leiden.

Quando ancora l'attività compositiva solitamente portava con sé precisi caratteri stilistici tipici della cultura cittadina in cui i compositori - quanto meno - operavano, l'eccellente violinista Giuseppe Matteo Alberti (1685-1751) guardò oltre la siepe e oggi gli è riconosciuto il merito di avere per primo adottato alcuni stilemi del linguaggio vivaldiano al di fuori dell'ambiente veneziano. I dati anagrafici di Alberti sono sovrapponibili, come si vede, a quelli di J.S. Bach, ma a lui non arrise la grandezza creativa e la fortuna (tarda) del Cantor: Bologna, S. Petronio, l'Accademia Filarmonica della sua città - di cui per qualche anno fu "Principe" - le sale del conte Orazio Bargellini per il quale curò l'attività musicale, furono lo scenario che egli calcò da protagonista,

Charpentier here offers elegant and intimate music that ranges from the delicate to the exuberant, the lyrical, and the dramatic. Most if not all of these pieces were probably written for the musical establishment of the Duchess of Guise, who was Charpentiers patron from 1670 until her death in 1688. The performing forces on this recording consist of five singes, two obligato violins and a continuo ensemble with theorbos the most prominent harmony instruments. While some of he music could conceivably be performed with larger forces, the chamber-like scale of these readings suites the character of the music admirably. Both texts and music suggest private household devotion rather than public liturgy. Texts range from the traditional seasonal Marian Antiphons to anonymous Latin devotional poetry of the Counter-Reformation.
