Notes & Reviews:

There was a "French Mozart" who most pleasurably satisfied the social and cultural needs of high society: François Devienne, a musical multitalent, virtuoso, composer, and sought-after flute teacher.

Devienne originally had nothing at all to do with a frightfully expensive diamond necklace, that was "stolen". When Cardinal Rohan, his employer and a prelate fond of luxury items, was imprisoned during the course of the affair, the musician lost his job. Just as proficient on the bassoon as on the flute, Devienne long remained without permanent employment. He earned his livelihood in the Chapel of the Swiss Guard and was uncommonly productive: twelve extremely successful operas, a number of solo concertos, and immense amounts of chamber music, above all for wind instruments, flowed from his pen.

The extraordinary quality of Devienne's works has Villa Musica is one of the chameleons of chamber music. This ensemble so exquisitely changeable in its instrumental dimensions has produced countless first class recordings in cooperation with MDG. Ingo Goritzki has once again assembled an all-star lineup for his recording of Devienne's six oboe sonatas. The proven pianoforte specialist Kristian Nyquist joins forces with him; Sergio Azzolini demonstrates his extraordinary talent even in finely nuanced continuo playing; and Diego Cantalupi on the lute and guitar and Ilze Grudel on the cello supply an accompaniment full of splendid color and variety.

This re-release of four central works by Erwin Schulhoff represents the breaking of a silence imposed by the Nazis fifty years ago and still making its effect felt in the Western musical world.

Schulhoff experimented with all the avant-garde trends during his short life, and dadaism and jazz were among his special interests. Born in Prague in 1894, he was interned for being a Jew and a communist and died in the Wulzburg Concentration Camp in 1942.

Schulhoff's Concertino for Flute had its great admirers. This work of folk inspiration won Bela Bartok's heart at its premiere in Donaueschingen in 1925 - with the Hindemith brothers on the viola and cello.

The "Florida" movement from his Divertissement of late 1927 takes aim at America of the Twenties. On this recording there is a masterful satire of the Charleston, the cult dance of those years.

Bass Nightingale for contrabassoon solo is by itself reason enough for adding this CD to your collection.

International Record Review
A gentle and gentlemanly treat, this.
