Quote from: (: premont :) on May 20, 2022, 05:44:28 AMEnsemble versions of AoF are not my great interest, and of the versions you mention I only know (from listening) the gambe quartet versions and Emerson, Italiano and Juliard and the ones I mention below from the top of my head.Kölner Violen Consort (suppose you know it)Roth QuartetDelmé quartet (haven't heard it)Bernini quartet (manuscript version and period instruments))Musica Antiqua Köln, Reinhard Goebel (for the most played OVPP)Soloists from Collegium Aureum (string quartet with a violone playing 16' parallel with the cello).Brecon Baroque (with Podger) is also OVPP
Quote from: Mandryka on May 20, 2022, 09:19:25 AMBy the way I've listened to a lot of these over the past few weeks. None of them are specially imaginative with the articulation or counterpoint, the best I can say is that there is something very distinctive going on with Les Voix Humaines.
Quote from: MandrykaThat being said I've enjoyed dipping into the introverted, peaceful and expressive Keller and the intense Italiano members version. And some of the others have their moments.
Quote from: Jo498 on May 27, 2022, 12:11:54 AMIs Musica Antiqua/Goebel (Archiv) basically "HIP in string quartet formation" or how do they vary in the ensembles?
Quote from: Jo498 on May 27, 2022, 01:06:46 AMthanks, how do they relate/compare to "modern" string quartet performances in that piece?
Quote from: Mandryka on July 31, 2022, 05:04:24 AMWhat I want now is AoF played by lute ensemble in the madrigal manner of Rübsam. However nice Keith Hill's lute harpsichord is, it's not as nice for overtones and resonances as a real lute. And I think the fact that two hands are forming the sound on a real lute makes a big difference to what can be done in terms of attacks and other effects. Apparently some lutes aren't even fretted - even better! All those microtones! Actually, even guitar would be good! It's not so much that I'm feeling down on the harpsichord. It's more that I want to sing a song of praise for lutes and similar instruments.
QuoteWith respect to his Bach arrangement, Jan van Vlijmen says, 'Bach has played an overpowering role in my musical life and work. In a manner of speaking, he is a staple of my musical diet. In my arrangement, I devised a different instrumentation for each contrapunctus (the tutti orchestra made up of all fourteen players occurs only three times - in nos. V, XI and XIX). By using the instru-ments, I wanted to delineate the structure and the development of the musical phrases and lines of Die Kunst der Fuge. The point of this arrangement is in fact the analysis - it can be considered an analytical instrumentation inspired by Anton Webern.
Quote from: Mandryka on February 07, 2023, 06:19:31 AMWhat sounds like quite a decent performance from Jean Luc Ho, he may use some organ effects later on, like tremulant. I can feel it coming! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=39iKudkAyIo&ab_channel=RolandLopesThe organ is neo- Gottfried Silberman and is, IMO, rather fab. https://ligneorguesremarquables.com/en/the-organs/lorgue-de-porrentruy/
Quote from: premont on February 07, 2023, 11:52:40 AMHe used tremulant only in one of the Canons. I also appreciate his sparing use of the pedal. But all in all he uses too much reeds, particularly trumpet. I think he began rather inspired with the first contrapuncti but later became more perfunctory and craftsman-like. At times it seemed as if he thought the most of getting finished. But I think he has the potential of making an interesting recording of the work. Thanks for posting it.
