Description

Sanguineus und Melancholicus What comprises good performance? The ability through singing or playing to make the ear conscious of the true content and affect of the composition. Any passage can be so radically changed by modifying its performance that it will be scarcely recognisable…. Good performance, then, occurs when one hears all notes and their embellishments played in correct time with fitting volume produced by a touch which is related to the true content of the piece (Versuch ber die wahre Art das Clavier zu spielen). C.P.E. Bachs instructions illustrates the aestheticism of the era. In his eyes good performance is a matter of portraying rage, anger, and other passions or the briskness of allegros…. the tenderness of adagios. Much of Bachs music has a strong improvisatory character, with large dynamic ranges, dramatic changes of mood, and sudden textural contrasts (The Empfindsamkeit style). These are the affects that the performer must understand and identify in Bachs music. One of C.P.E. Bachs most programmatic chamber pieces is entitled a Conversation between a Sanguineus and a Melancholicus.

Press reviews

Fanfare

(…) What fascinates us in the music of C.P.E. Bach is his peculiar way of combining his own very dignified brand of seriousness and a often positively disruptive concentration on dramatic surprese of the moment – at the expense of the symmetry and formal organization the seriousness leads us to expect. (…) (…) Highly recommended as an introduction to the still rather mysterious world of C.P.E. Bach’s chamber music.

BBC Music Magazine

(…) All is played with sensibility and expressive warmth.

Diapason

(…) raffinement des sonorits combines avec une nergie, une vigueur et une tension des plus stimulantes. (…)

Luister

(…) De kracht van deze musici ligt in hun vermogen om met verrassende interpretaties een geweldige spanning te creren, waardoor je voortdurend geboeid blijft. (…)

Rpertoire

(…) ce disque reste plus que recommandable. (…)

Gramophone

(…) The talented Florilegium players bring out to the full the bewilderlingly diverse character of the sonatas (…) (…) Ashley Solomon’s performance is most persuasive.(…) (…) The whole disque is strongly recommended.

Telegraaf

(…) Florilegium speelt deze muziek sprankelend (…) (…) Luister naar Florilegium, dan hoor je wat de componist bedoelde.

Early Music Review

(…) een betoverend mooie cd, waarop Florilegium rijk en excellent musicieert (…) Leeuwarder Courant, October 1998 (…) More of the same will be welcome (…)
