Prague Sinfonia Orchestra, Christian Benda

Music in the family: Conductor Christian Benda interprets the music of his Bohemian ancestor Georg Anton Benda (1722-1795). This appealing cross section of the symphonies of Georg Anton Benda, who was highly respected by Mozart, which includes six rarely performed symphonies in three movements. All pieces performed by the Prague Sinfonia Orchestra and conducted by Christian Benda.

Christian Benda has performed worldwide to critical acclaim. He boasts numerous CD and TV recordings of the standard repertoire and an eclectic repertoire ranging from J S Bach’s Musical Offering to twentieth century symphonic works. His recordings with soloists include works by Wagner and R Strauss with Cheryl Studer, Verdi with Simon Estes, Mozart with Barbara Hendricks, and Dvorak, Puccini and Previn with Renée Fleming. Christian Benda conducts melodramas with actors and directors of the Wiener Schauspielhaus, the Volkstheater, the Burgtheater (Vienna) and the Comédie Française (Paris). As a composer, he has created the concept of micro-opera, and his works have been premiered at the Vienna Konzerthaus and the Prague Smetana Hall. Invited to many of the European festivals, he works with a host of national orchestras; in particular he serves as the Chief Conductor and Artistic Director of the Prague Sinfonia Orchestra.

As part of the Czech National Day celebrations, Václav Havel – former president of the Czech Republic – became Honorary President of the Prague Sinfonia Orchestra during a gala concert at the Czech National House in New York City with Christian Benda as Chief Conductor and Artistic Di rec tor. The Prague Sinfonia embodies the Velvet Revolution’s spiritual, cultural and social renewal through symphonic performance and owes its existence to Václav Havel’s ideas. Its discography includes the complete Schubert overtures in two CDs and all of Rossini's overtures in four volumes. A recording of the solo repertoire with the violinist Fabrizio von Arx has recently been released on RCA Red

Seal, including works by Saraste and Bruch. This recording of Benda’s Sinfonias, as well as an earlier CD of Philidor’s overtures, showcases the Prague Sinfonia Orchestra’s inter pretative approach with the focus on the music of the classical period.

Jiří Antonín Benda spent his prime years at King Friedrich II’s court orchestra in Berlin and serving as court Kapellmeister in Gotha, yet his works were an integral part of 18th century Prague’s musical landscape. The Czech capital frequently hosted performances of his singspiels, while prints of his compositions were in high demand too. Benda was best known for his melodramas and singspiels, whose novel and striking forcibility even enthralled the young Mozart (“You know that Benda has always been my favourite Lutheran Kapellmeister,” wrote Wolfgang to this father). The greatest impact on Benda’s keyboard music was made by his Berlin colleague Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach. The first of the six volumes of Benda’s “Sammlung” was published in 1780. Besides sonatas and sonatinas for “piano” (meaning any keyboard instrument, most frequently the harpsichord), the collection contained arias from church pieces, sonatas for several instruments, and songs. It was an extraordinary success and when it comes to the number of subscribers, it even outstripped C. P. E. Bach’s similarly conceived collection of sonatas, which started to be published a year earlier.

Benda’s music is enchanting in its simplicity, impressive expression, gallantry and wit. The artists who made this recording have immersed themselves in Benda’s musical universe and, bringing to bear their ample performing experience, have succeeded in relaying its irresistible charm.

“Blandness sometimes threatens, even more so in the featherweight sonatinas, though even at his most compliant Benda can trip you up with a disorientating pause, or surprise harmonic twist.” Gramophone Magazine, September 2015

Georg Benda: Chamber Music And Songs

Georg Benda: Chamber Music And Songs

Ensemble Arcomelo

Georg Benda was born into a musical nest: his father was composer Jan Jiri Benda and his mother came from the famous Brixi family.

In 1742 Georg moved to Berlin where he worked at the court of Frederick the Great. He became a well known and internationally respected musician and composer, mainly of melodramas and operas. His “Ariadne auf Naxos” paved the way for Mozart’s operas.

Benda published a collection of pieces meant for domestic use, for “accomplished and less accomplished players”, containing a wealth of keyboard works, chamber music and vocal works for solo voice and chamber group: delightful, fresh music, full of invention and (small) drama, marking the transition from the Baroque into the Classical Era.

Excellent performances by harpsichordist Michele Benuzzi (who already received 5 star reviews for his Hassler recording for BC94293) and his Ensemble Arcomelo, playing on original instruments.
