Perhaps Rousseau's Devin du Village has been waiting just for you for two centuries at the Theatre de la Reine at the Petit Trianon. On September 19, 1780, Marie-Antoinette was on stage, in costume, and was acting with her troop of aristocrats in front of a public of close friends. That evening, she was singing the role of Colette, the heroine of this one-act opera composed in 1753 by the philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau, perhaps the most celebrated work of its time.

Preis: CHF 21.00

The old instruments of the Stadtpfeiffer were replaced by French-styled oboes and bassoons in German courts and cities at the beginning of the 18th century. These became the "bandes de hautbois" to which trumpets were added, the combination becoming the basis of the military band.

Set-Inhalt: 1CD
Preis: CHF 21.00

Die vorliegende Aufnahme versucht, Elemente aus Ganassis 1535 in Venedig erschienener Abhandlung über die Ornamentik Fontegara musikalisch darzustellen. Dieses Werk war für seine reichen aristokratischen Schüler bestimmt und spiegelt vermutlich nicht nur seine persönliche Praxis wieder. Die berufliche Laufbahn des Musikers bestand im Wesentlichen darin zu dirigieren und die Bombarde (bretonisches Blasinstrument) mit seinem Ensemble im Dienste einer Reihe von Dogen und Scuole zu spielen.

The Russian violinist Evgeny Sviridov, winner of the MA Festival Bruges Competition in 2017, has chosen to devote his first recording to the sonatas of Giuseppe Tartini. As heir to the Baroque tradition of the early eighteenth century, Tartini developed technical concepts much bolder than those of his predecessors, thus preparing the violin for the language of the Classical period.

Written at different moments in the composer's life and based to a large extent on the works of Martin Luther, these cantatas reflect a marked taste for dramaturgy, vivid word-painting and an invariably astonishing use of instruments and voices.

The year 1736 was very important in the life of Bach: he has conferred the title of Royal-Polish and Electoral-Saxon Court Composer. In that same year, he composed the only two autographed sonatas for flute and obbligato harpsichord. Both sonatas came to us as a step of an elaborative process which could also have consisted of a diverse instrumentation.
