Flute sonatas in B minor and C major
pixel
pixelSimon Balicourt
Simon Balicourt (1706–1757), during a London career that lasted from 1735 (the year he arrived from the Continent) until his death, was a leading flautist and flute composer. He left two sets of flute sonatas, published in 1750 and 1760 respectively, each containing eight beautifully polished and musically imaginative works that draw equally on his German background and on the French-influenced tradition of flute-playing in his adoptive country. Suitable for both educational use and concert performance, these pieces – now appearing for the first time in a modern critical edition – deserve a place at the forefront of the late baroque repertory for transverse flute. continue reading

La Canterina, Intermezzo in Musica
pixel
pixelJoseph Haydn
Joseph Haydn’s two-act La Canterina (‘The Singing Girl’) was one of the composer’s earliest stage works, written in 1766 soon after Prince Nikolaus Esterházy had promoted him to first Kapellmeister. The libretto, based on the third act of Piccinni’s opera L’Origille (1760), was most likely adapted by Karl Friberth, a singer at the Esterházy Court. The first documented performance was in Pressburg (Bratislava) on 16 February 1767, but the piece may have been performed a year earlier at Eisenstadt. Lasting under an hour, this buffa-style work has no overture and was originally designed as two intermezzi, each with a final quartet, to be performed between the acts of an opera seria. The persona of each of the four characters is derived from the commedia dell’arte tradition, their individual arias parodying the contemporary world of opera and theatre. Haydn’s music skilfully enhances this comic critical vein, and he reserves his particular scorn for the singers.
