Notes & Reviews:

Ardinghello Ensemble, led by the flutist Karl Kaiser, is now presenting the recording premiere of Andreas Romberg's flute quintets - most highly individual compositions full of surprises on the threshold of romanticism.

The Bonn court orchestra was the gathering ground for an exclusive group of outstanding musicians and personalities including Ludwig van Beethoven, Anton und Josef Reicha, Franz Anton Ries, and Nikolaus Simrock, who later became a publisher and kept the top compositional names under contract.

The cousins Andreas and Bernhard Romberg, the former a violinist who gained fame with his first compositions and the latter who went on to become a renowned cello virtuoso, were also members of this musical circle. Andreas Romberg's Das Lied von der Glocke based on Schiller's magnificent ballad would fill the concert halls for centuries.

The instrumentation of the flute quintets is fascinating in itself. While the practice of the times usually called for a string quartet to join the flute, Romberg prescribes a second viola.

The Ardinghello Ensemble does an absolutely magnificent job, scoring a genuine coup with its recording of Andreas Romberg's three flute quintets. Captured in the best MDG sound, these long-forgotten masterpieces experience an impressive revival and make us look forward to their sequel!
