pixel DOUBLE VIOLIN CONCERTOS BY MASCITTI

Concertos 1 and 2 from Op. 7 (Paris 1727)
pixel
pixelMichele Mascitti
Conventional violin sonatas formed the backbone of the series of ten collections that the Italian violinist Michele Mascitti (1663/4–1760), born in southern Italy but permanently resident in Paris from 1703, committed to print between 1704 and 1738. His Op. 7 (1727) opens with eight such sonatas but ends with four concertos for strings in six parts that, alongside a collection of concertos for five flutes (!) by J. B. de Boismortier published in the same year, inaugurate the proud tradition of concertos created on French soil. Amazingly, Mascitti’s concertos have been neglected not merely by publishers and performers but also by commentators. In particular, the first two concertos display great musical merit in an original idiom that combines Italian and French influences in a very personal way. Further, their Italianate elements juxtapose features familiar from the concertos of Corelli, Mascitti’s reputed teacher, with ones more usually associated with Vivaldi. Both concertos are laden with emotion, albeit never at the expense of the polish and attention to detail that are the hallmark of Mascitti’s craft. Read more

pixel MOZART’S Symphony No. 40 arranged for piano by HUMMEL

Symphony No. 40 in G minor, K550
pixel
pixelW. A. Mozart | J. N. Hummel
According to Mozart’s own thematic catalogue of his works (the Verzeichnüß), which he kept from 1784 to 1791, his final three symphonies were composed within the space of a few weeks, from late June to early August 1788. During that year the 11-year-old Hummel was a resident pupil of Mozart and would have been a daily witness to the creation of these seminal works of the Western musical canon. There is an almost total lack of documentary evidence concerning the circumstances in which these symphonies were written, however, which has led to considerable speculation as to their origins, early performances and reception.

“These editions of transcriptions by Hummel are a very welcome addition to the extensive set of his arrangements of Mozart’s concertos and symphonies published by Edition HH. [They] are fine examples of the important genre of piano transcription of the orchestral and operatic repertoire [and] as such, they are greatly to be treasured by anyone with an interest in the burgeoning piano repertoire of the 19th century.”

Den lille danserinnen (‘The Little Ballerina’) evokes a charming, gracious, light-footed dancer, while Nocturne makes the piano sing in the romantic tradition. Both these delightful short pieces would be ideal encores!
