Empfindsam

(independent release)

CMDH's album "Empfindsam" was recorded in 2014 to celebrate the 300th anniversary of Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach.

Besides works by Emanuel Bach, other pieces connected to him and to the empfindsam style (a language he undoubtedly brought to excellence) are also on the cd: two of his orchestral pieces - a symphony and a harpsichord concerto; a very exciting sonata for violin, cello and harpsichord obbligato; a symphony by his brother Wilhelm Friedemann Bach, also featuring the empfindsam style; and, last but not least, we went all the way to Naples to dig out some of the roots of this style, with a recorder concerto by Francesco Barbella.

DOLCE NAPOLI - sonate & concerti per flauto

(Passacaille)

Recorded in the summer of 2013, with an ensemble of seven musicians, 'Dolce Napoli' presents unique concertos and sonatas by amongst others Fiorenza, Rosa, Leo, Pullj and Mancini, including works only very recently rediscovered. The CD also premieres two copies of Italian Baroque recorders never heard in modern times, which were the focus of this first project. Also unique is the use of three different pitches for the recording, accompanying the original pitches of the recorders utilized. In this way, the sonority of all the instruments used are varied in a ‘pitch wave’ that fluctuates between A=425Hz, A=415Hz and A=405Hz.

Naples 1759

(Passacaille)

After a remarkable apogee in its repertoire in the 1720s and 30s, by the middle of the eighteenth century the recorder was slowly but surely retiring from the public eye. But here and there the instrument was kept breathing. Naples, 1759: a handful of recorder sonatas were copied. This album presents all but one of the six works dated 1759. Added to these are two other sonatas, also previously unrecorded, stemming from another important recorder collection now held in New York, and the little known “Quattro Stagioni” by Francesco Durante, a piece for harpsichord solo, kept in Lisbon.
