Ensemble Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Over the past four decades, Musica Antiqua Koln has been one of the most influential, and often controversial, groups in the world of early music performance. Founded in 1973 as a chamber ensemble by Reinhard Goebel and fellow students from the Cologne Hochschule fur Musik, it immediately set the highest possible standards in the execution of baroque music.

The works performed here are drawn from an anthology fo trio sonatas gathered together by Franz Rost, cantor to the Margrave of Baden-Baden. One of the most important collections of string music from the period, it ranges from serious works in the tombeau and funerary genres, such as Schmelzer's Lamento on the death of the Emperor Ferdinand III, through non-programmatic sonatas ans suites, to music cleasrly designed with earthier sentiments in mind, such as C.H. Abel's Bataille and Schmelzer's humorous celebration of Polish bagpiping.

Already bearing all the hallmarks of the distinctively intense Music Antiqua Koln 'sound', this third release of the Rediscoveries series couldn't have some out on a better time, as it celebrates Goebel's sixtieth birthday in 2012, and the coming fortieth anniversary of Music Antique Koln's founding in 2013.

MusicWeb International, December 2012
I think that the early music world has seen very few violinists as virtuosic as Reinhard Goebel. It is his approach to this repertoire which is essential to reveal its character. Among its features are a sharp articulation, marked dynamic accents and a full exploration of the contrasts within a piece. These characteristics I often sorely miss in more recent performances. This recording may date from 35 years ago, but it is just as good and as exciting as it was at that time.
