Seven different Harp pieces, played by M Kozikova (rec. Prague late 60s - 1 11 0507)

£6.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Recorded for the redoubtable, Eastern European "Supraphon" label, this is harpist Marcela Kozikova, playing seven different works for the instrument.

Side One :-
1) Romance, comp. Palero :-
Francisco Fernandez Palero lived in the 16C. There is little known about his life, except that he was organist of the Royal Chapel in Granada in the late 1560s. The "Romance", recorded here, is from a collection edited by Luis V Henestrosa in Alcola in 1557, where it was, curiously, labelled "anonymous".
2) Hachas, comp. de Ribayaz :-
About the life of Lucas Ruiz de Ribayaz, there is also little information, save for the facts that he lived in the 17C, and that he wrote a treatise on playing the guitar & harp, printed in Madrid in 1677, and containing twenty-five compositions. The title translates as "Hatchets", a traditional type of Spanish dance.
3) Pavane & Variations, comp. de Cabezon.
The last of the Spaniards featured on this album, Antonio de Cabezon was born in a small town in the province of Burgos, in 1510. He was blind since childhood, but managed to master his instruments and music, to the extent that he was an organist and harpsichordist at the royal courts, of Charles V, and Philip II.
4) Sonata in G major, by C P E Bach :-
This sonata, by Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach (1714-88) was preserved in manuscript form, in the archive of the Conservatoire Royal de Musique, in Brussels. Although there exists some doubts concerning the authenticity of that copy, the authorship of the work, is nowadays considered genuine.

Side Two :-
1) Sonata in E flat major, comp. Dusik :-
Although Jan Ladislav Dusik's name may have not been the one, most uttered in the classical world over the years, nevertheless the Czech is considered a master, in being one of the true forerunners of romanticism, not only in his creative art and his career - as mostly a pianist -, but also his turbulent life spent in many parts of Europe. His mother was also an excellent harpist, as was his wife. This sonata is from a collection that is kept in the Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris.
2) Sonata in E flat major, comp. Rossler-Rosetti :-
Despite the last part of his name being Italian, Frantisek Antonin Rossler-Rosetti was a fellow Bohemian (province of Czechoslovakia) to Dusik, but Rossler-Rosetti spent most of his life in Germany. This sonata was published, as part of his six-sonata collection, in 1785.
3) Sonata in C minor, comp. Pescetti :-
Born in Venice in 1704, Giovanni Battista Pescetti, was mainly an opera composer. Now considered a master of classical music, Pescetti wrote a number of sonatas for the harpsichord (an early keyboard instrument), but they were found to translate extremely well to the harp itself.
