My introduction to these concerti, some fifty years ago from a Supraphon LP of five or six of them played as I recall by ArsRediviva, a group who, despite their impressive Latinate title, were much less in tune with the music of this period than the Avison Ensemble, nevertheless came as much of an epiphany moment, like Keats looking into Chapman's Homer, as my earlier introduction to Bach's Brandenburg Concertos.
Autre temps Since then there's been a revolution in playing the music of this period and we have had some fine performances of these concerti grossi, notably on Cordelli-Christmas Concerto (From Concerto Grosso Op. 6 No. 8) - Brian Slawson - Bach On Wood instruments. Now along comes the latest release from the Avison Ensemble whose performances of the music of their namesake on the Divine Art label and subsequent appearances in Handel and Vivaldi on Linn have also received high praise, not least from me:.
On opening my latest parcel of review discs, then, I had the highest expectations on seeing the set of Corelli's Op. In brief, if you don't yet have a set of these ground-breaking works, or even if you have, perhaps, No. We have grown used to some very fast tempi for music of this period, especially from Italian ensembles. While Pavlo Beznosiuk is no slouch, he's certainly no speed merchant either; the adagio sections of the first movement of No. For some really airy playing try the finale of this concerto atexactly the same time as on the Pinnock recording.
In the adagio-allegro-adagio movement of No. Again in the pastorale: largo where the shepherds of the Nativity are evoked, the new recording doesn't hang around but the mood is well evoked without heavy underlining. You will, I think be disappointed with that tempo only if you're inseparably wedded to the ponderous way that these movements used to be treated, most notoriously by Herbert von Karajan.
Karajan takes for the pastorale, Marriner and McGegan are Cordelli-Christmas Concerto (From Concerto Grosso Op. 6 No. 8) - Brian Slawson - Bach On Wood shade too fast perhaps at and respectively; Beznosiuk happily splits the difference atwith Goodman in close agreement at and Pinnock is a shade slower at Compromise isn't always the right answer but I'm with Beznosiuk, Goodman and Pinnock here.
The Linn recording is good - truthful without trying to be spectacular - and the booklet of notes does justice to Corelli's music. The SACD stereo layer adds greater depth to the sound picture without adding heaviness.
The best news of all is that this is apparently the harbinger of a complete series of Corelli's chamber music from the Avison Ensemble. I look forward with anticipation to what is to follow. Cordelli-Christmas Concerto (From Concerto Grosso Op. 6 No.
8) - Brian Slawson - Bach On Wood Pinnock and McGegan have been my prime La Valigia Blu - Patty Pravo - Playlist for these concertos Am I In Love - Various - Music From The Motion Picture Love & A .45 if price is a consideration Goodman is also very good; without wishing to desert them, the present new set is a strong alternative for those looking for SACD.
Arcangelo Corelli published relatively few compositions during his lifetime - in fact the Opus 6 Concerti Grossi were brought out a year after his death-but his influence over composers of the late Baroque Era was unprecedented. Many of the techniques we associate more with others, such as the chains of melodic sequences at the heart of so many Vivaldi concerti, were more likely his inventions.
He also made extensive use of suspensions, those sweetly dissonant combinations of tones formed when the harmony shifts under a sustained note. Some of the concerti are scored so simply that they could in fact be played by the solo trio alone, but even the simplest pieces gain some depth and varied shading from the alteration of solo passages with ritornelli, antiphonal exchanges, and echoes from the full ensemble.
The well-established Avison Ensemble employs period instruments, and their performances of the entire cycle are quite sensitive: meltingly lyrical in the slow movements and full of life in the faster ones. They also embellish when appropriate, but it is worth noting that Corelli conceived this as ensemble music, and as such it does not offer the sorts of opportunities for solo display, including wholesale improvisation, that abound in the solo sonatas.
Nevertheless the transitions between movements, the cadential trills, and the occasional repetitions that lend themselves to ornamentation are handled with considerable skill - and not just by leader Pavlo Beznosiuk but also by Mr. Hamilton at the Loosemore box organ, for example. The recording seems near-ideal to me.
It offers a resonant church acoustic, more wood than stone, that supports the low strings without ever swamping the vivid sound of the violins and violas. There is a nice "spread" to the orchestral layout, and one is always able to distinguish easily between the solo trio and the whole group.
Its composition date is uncertain, but there is a record of Corelli having performed a Christmas concerto in for the enjoyment of his new patron. The concerto is scored for an ensemble consisting of two concertino violins and celloripieno strings and continuo.
The work is structured as a concerto da Cordelli-Christmas Concerto (From Concerto Grosso Op. 6 No. 8) - Brian Slawson - Bach On Wood in this case expanded from a typical four movement structure to six:.
Each relatively short movement provides multiple tempi and a range of major and minor suspensions. The concerto is generally no longer than fifteen minutes, ending with Corelli's famous Pastorale ad libituma peaceful 12 8 finale in the pastorale form.
