Six Wind Concertos - Fasch (early/mid 18C German composer CD)

£5.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

(featuring oboists Hans-Peter Westermann & Piet Dhont ; flautist Karl Kaiser ; and bassoonist Michael McCraw ; plus two violinists, viola, violone, and harpsichord).

Johann Friedrich Fasch (1688-1758), was steeped in the same, wonderful, central-German musical traditions, as his three main contemporaries Johann Sebastian Bach, George Handel, and Georg Telemann. But, if Telemann's name is not as immediately recognisable, as those of Bach and Handel, then J F Fasch's name is, sadly, almost completely forgotten.

Indeed, this is not only a point of sadness, but also illogic ; Fasch's music represents an important point, in the development from baroque-, to full blown, classical-styles, not to mention, he himself being highly thought-of by those three other composers. Another, somewhat unusual fact concerning the composer, is that none of his works were published in his lifetime.

The six concertos on this compact disc, are all early works, found in the form of non-autographed, handwritten parts and scores in the town of Darmstadt. The approximate dates of composition are, early-mid 1720s.

1)-3) Concerto for flute, oboe & strings (9:14)
4)-6) Concerto for oboe & strings (9:37)
7)-10) Concerto for oboe, 2 violins & harpsichord (6:27)
11)-13) Concerto for flute, oboe & strings (6:38)
14)-17) Concerto for oboe & strings (9:45)
18)-20) Concerto for 2 oboes, bassoon & strings (8:52)

The CD is in EX- condition.
