Italy versus France – The Bach Players

Italian or French? Jean Baptiste Lully and Arcangelo Corelli were the champions of these two musical styles and the main subjects of the many attempts to establish which style was better. Or could the two styles be united? This programme paints a musical picture of the seventeenth century in Europe, through the music of Corelli, Lully, and their contemporaries.

Chief among the reconcilers was the organist and composer Georg Muffat. German but of Scottish ancestry, it was he who introduced both styles to Germany. Also included are Rebel’s homage to Lully and Couperin’s to Corelli.

“This is the most enjoyable programme of seventeenth-century chamber music I have heard in a long time. The recording manages to capture the strings in gutty rather than silvery detail so we relax and enjoy the music without suffering from steel-string fatigue. Altogether, this is a wonderfully diplomatic programme which brings the best out in everyone – French, Italian, German and performers alike.”

Johann Sebastian Bach – Goldberg Variations – Trascrizione per chitarra – Andreas Almqvist

On this record Andreas Almqvist has chosen to study Johann Sebastian Bach’s Goldberg Variations from the horizon of a guitarist. A guitar is different from a harpsichord or any other instrument. The guitar has its own demands. This means that the performer necessarily must try to bring the several preconditions into the personal unit his musical taste demands. With sensibility and great knowledge he gives us his version of the Aria with variations.

Johannes Brahms – Complete Symphonies – Pubblico Dominio

Johannes Brahms (7 May 1833 – 3 April 1897) was a German composer and pianist, and one of the leading musicians of the Romantic period.
