Notes & Reviews:

Notturna's "spirited and sensitive playing" (Early Music America) draws on the transparency and expressiveness of early wind instruments to paint fresh pictures of an unexplored historical repertoire. In collaboration with ATMA Classique and the Scottish publishing house, Prima la musica! has cultivated a unique rapport with Janitsch's music.

This is the third release in a series of recordings from ATMA Classique highlighting the chamber sonatas of German composer Johann Gottlieb Janitsch (1708-1763)... The works on this album are all quartets for three solo instruments and basso continuo, drawn from the forty-one such surviving compositions. It isn't certain when they were written, but stylistically, they are in a pre-classical or gallantstyle, colorfully scored, harmonically adventurous and contrapuntally, really quite masterful. ... read more ...

On Volume 3 are sonatas chosen from Op. 1, 3, 4, 5, and 7 for instruments including flute, oboe, violin, viola, cello, and gamba. Pick three and add basso continuo. Janitsch was known for pushing the limits of both instruments and performers. In Op. 4:1, he writes up to high A, the top note on the baroque flute. In Op. 3:1, he goes through a harmonic progression of F, D minor, C-sharp minor, F-sharp minor, B-flat over five measures. Last year, I performed one of the Quartets by Telemann for the first time and loved it. The interplay and quality of Janitsch are just as good. The Canadian group Notturna is accomplished and they take vibrant tempos. Bracing, solid period instrument playing makes this series worthwhile.

They are technically accomplished interpretations which is worth noting as some parts seem uite demanding. The ensemble is excellent, and the performers have a good sense of rhythmic pulse.
