Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Although Handel is not known for his keyboard music today, he was a gifted performer who astonished his contemporaries with his mastery of the instrument. First published in 1720, the 'eight great suites', immensely popular in their time, contain some of Handel's most beautiful music. These final four suites illuminate not only his melodic gifts and dramatic flair but also his ability to unify a variety of forms and styles into a complete and magnificent whole. The first of this two volume set, acclaimed by Fanfare magazine for 'its often assured and inspired playing' is available on Naxos 8.572197.

The composer and violinist Henri Vieuxtemps, (1820-1881) impressed Schumann so much that upon hearing the fourteen-year-old violinist, Schumann wrote that Vieuxtemps "holds us in a kind of magic circle that encloses us ..." As one of a long line of master nineteenth- century violinist-composers, a line that stretches from Viotti, Rode, Bériot, and Paganini in the early years of the century to Wieniawski, Kreisler and Ysa˙e at the end, Vieuxtemps was a towering figure among these violinist- composers, and the first to use the full romantic orchestral palette in the composition of his works. Featuring Reto Kuppel on violin.
