Saw Claas Harders yesterday night. I'm happy that our friendship lasts although we don't meet on a regular basis. Also, he's such a marvelous musician.


Recording Bach's Goldberg variations on two viols has been his recent project:



I do warmly recommend it!

looking for collaborators [Feb. 10th, 2009|05:18 pm]

I've finally gotten the lovely harpsichord I've always wanted; now I'm looking for people interested in playing baroque music with me. I'd like to form a trio sonata - type ensemble with a flutist or recorder player, a violinist, and either a cellist or viola da gamba player. Archlute/theorbo would be another possibility. Period or modern instruments are OK. I don't mind tuning to 415 or 440, but obviously I can't do both at the same time. I'm thinking in terms of playing for the fun of it, but I'm open to performing in front of people if everyone wants to. This would not be a paying gig, at least at first, but I wouldn't turn up my nose at the possibility, either.

Is there anyone in the Baltimore/DC area who might be interested? The harpsichord and I are located in downtown Baltimore.

Introduction [Sep. 28th, 2008|09:09 pm]

I recently discovered this community and wanted to say hello. I prepare modern performing editions of baroque music: I've been focused on Christoph Graupner, Telemann, Johann Endler and some classical period composers including Karl Ordonez and Pokorny. Most of the editions are Editio Princeps and feature a variety of wide solo instumentation (e.g. flute, oboe, viola d'amore, trumpet and multiple timpani).

Thanks :-)

I read that in baroque music, there was an ideal sound e. g. in broken consort music, viz. every single instrument should be distinctly heard. German musicologists have come to call it Spaltklang, which would literally translate as split sound.

Q Is there an established English term for this?

Additional question: Does someone know who established the term and the notion in musicology?

Lillibulero problem [Aug. 8th, 2008|12:50 am]
The Baroque Musican

I have a slight problem which I do not know what to do.

I am preparing for the August 15th harpsichord concert, music by Restoration composers, such as Matthew Locke and Henry Purcell.

I intend to play Purcell's Lillibulero as the final piece of the program. This is actually arguably his most famous music piece. Although most people do not realize he was the composer.

To cut a story short, I don't know if it would be considered offensive to especially the Irish to play it.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lillibullero

This is pretty much THE song during the end of the Restoration and the beginning of the Glorious Revolution. Everyone who lived in the British Isles in around 1690 would know this song, and it was so popular that it was considered as one of the major reasons why William and Mary managed to defeat James II and took the throne.

For those that do not know what I am talking about..this is the station identification song of the BBC.
You can click here, and I am sure if you ever listen to or watch the BBC, you will remember this tune. (Oh, THAT song!!!)

To play the Lillibulero by itself is pretty pointless. It will be super short, so I intend to find someone to actually sing the entire song while I play the keyboard part. Ideally that person will have an Ulster accent.
I would love the audience to sing together, as I will print the entire lyrics on the program.

This is the lyrics, with a clip of someone singing it.

Anyway, input please?
