Product notities

Who decides wether a composer is a genius or not? If I say today, that Johann Sebastian Bach (1685 - 1750) was a genius composer, nobody would argue. It has been commonly held belief that J.S. Bach was a genius since Felix Mendelssohn decided to revive his works. However, we must never forget that in his time, Bach himself was a second-rank composer. Both Händel and Telemann enjoyed far greater fame. So who is to decide wether Joan Manén (1883 - 1971) or François de Fossa (1775 - 1849) were geniuses, or not? With this disc I would like to say that even if the latter two composers are not declared geniuses, they were nevertheless capable of writing musical masterpieces. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- François De Fossa´s Divertimento 2 for solo guitar is inspired by orchestral music. He wrote four divertimentos on themes by Franz Joseph Haydn, in which he took motifs of Haydn´s symphonies and made transcription-like pieces. There is however something special about the Divertimento 2: despite all the research musicologists have done, they could not find any themes from Haydn in this piece. This inclines us to believe that Divertimento 2 is actually based on an unknown Haydn symphony... Unlikely you think? Remember that during Haydn's lifetime paper was very hard to come by, and it was not uncommon for the local butcher to use musical scores to wrap his meat. This fate that was nearly suffered by the manuscripts of Bach's violin Sonatas and Partitas. Could this have happened to some of Haydn´s music? In any case Francois de Fossa has given us a piece of musical history, most likely from Haydn, making Divertimento 2 one of the most interesting pieces for guitar from the period. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Johann Sebastian Bach originally wrote his Sonata BWV 1005 for violin, but it's polyphonic style and idiomatic tonality has made it a favourite piece amongst classical guitarists. The fact that it contains the longest Fuga Bach ever wrote, makes it all the more noteworthy. I left the Adagio and Fuga very near to the original violin score, but in the Largo and Allegro Assai I added basses so that the piece better suits the guitar. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ When a composer chooses to write for the guitar, the choice often falls on a small, cosy piece, suitable as an encore. Joan Manén however went straight for the big concert piece with his Sonata-Fantasia. It is a three-movement attacca sonata, a form favoured by Franz Liszt. I always enjoyed listening to the piece, but felt as if something where missing. After many years of studying the classical guitar and it's repertoire, I decided to work on the piece. It was with great joy that I discovered Manén did not leave his Sonata-Fantasia as a guitar piece. He actually orchestrated the entire piece under the name Divertimento. I do not know the reason for this choice, but I rather think that he was dissatisfied with the guitar version and wanted to complete the piece. For this reason, I decided to compare the two scores, filling in what I felt was missing in the guitar version. The result is what you hear, a sort of orchestral guitar transcription of a work originally written for guitar. I hope that Manén would be proud of his new and reworked guitar piece.
