Product description

Victimae paschali laudes / (Johann Joseph Fux) -- Kyrie -- Gloria -- Credo -- Sanctus -- Benedictus -- Agnus dei -- Allegro -- Aria -- Allegro assai -- Paries Quidem Filium / (Johann Joseph Fux)
Few great composers have ever devoted so much of their music to the key of C major as Johann Joseph Fux (1660-1741), the chief Austrian court composer for thirty years, and very few have ever achieved the varied brilliance of Fux's imperial sacred music. Conductor Martin Haselböck suggests in his notes that Fux's obligation to make use of trumpets in most of his grandest ceremonial works obligated him to compose in major keys in insure the reliability of his valveless horns. The music recorded here is indeed rich in brass; Haselböck' s Wiener Akademie orchestra includes three trumpets, alto trombone, tenor trombone, cornetto, bassoon, six violins, two violas, cello, violone, organ, and timpani, truly an imperial ensemble for 1713, the year when Fux composed his "Missa Corporis Christi." Fux's use of timpani with his trumpet-loaded ensemble places him directly in the Austrian tradition inherited by Haydn and Mozart; these sacred compositions are utterly symphonic in affect.
New and sealed.

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
