Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"He was a good contrapuntist, and his quartets currently continue to be the best models of this style." (Wilhelm Hertel, 1784). The musician on whom fellow composer Hertel lavished this praise had, by then, been dead for more than twenty years - a long time when considering the enormous change in musical taste during the latter 18th c. The "good contrapuntist" was Johann Gottlieb Janitsch (1708-63), by trade one of the "first chapel servants" of Frederick the Great, from 1736. Numerous manuscripts, some recorded here, survive solely in the Archive of Berlin's Singakademie.

American Record Guide, July/August 2015
The program consists of four chamber sonatas (in F, E-flat, D, and G minor) and two church sonatas (in F and D minor). The baroque oboe (Alessandro PiquT) figures prominently in the F-major and E-flat and G-minor sonatas, while violin(s) are essential to all. Janitsch calls for viola in the E-flat Sonata, and viola is the only soloist in the D-major sonata. Janitsch's talent shines particularly in his ability to evoke instrumentally the taste for delicate conversation and operatic singing in his time. The Church Sonata in D minor for two violins is a particularly lovely example. Verena Schoneweg and Gabriel Nussberger exude refinement through their gentle interaction in the opening Largo. The closing Allegretto is likewise delightful. In the E-flat Sonata Janitsch evokes opera. The opening Andante is marked 'Con Stilo Di Recitativo', so one must imagine the words behind the episodes played by oboe, violin, and viola.
